The works to be played by Szilvia Kárászy and friends at this multimedia concert, ranging from the classics – among them works by Purcell, Saint-Saëns, Rachmaninoff and Scriabin – to jazz to the latest trends in contemporary music, will initiate the audience into the world of the artist as a performer and composer. Also to be heard for the first time this evening will be the most recently developed Hungarian variant of the carillon, a musical instrument which uses a series of bells connected to a keyboard. Prepare, then, for an audiovisual experience and a genuine 21st century concert adventure! As a pianist, composer and multimedia artist, Szilvia Kárászy is one of the most versatile artistic personalities on the music scene today. She was first invited to make a recording in Germany (of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition) while still a college student in 1989, and subsequently embarked on concert tours across the world. As a composer she made her debut in 1991. In 1998, she was the founder and director of the First Fazioli Piano Festival, which was part of the official programme of the Budapest Spring Festival from 2001 to 2005. Her film entitled Hungarian music in the teaching of piano 1900–2000 was awarded a UNESCO prize. In 2009 she opened a performance and exhibition space dedicated to the arts, the Kárászy Salon, which was awarded the Gundel Art Prize by a prestigious jury in 2010 in recognition of its exceptionally high standards.
