From the very beginning, Müpa Budapest has regarded it as one of its tasks to renew the world of traditional live classical music performance by introducing new types of concerts. The brainchild of László Fassang, the Gallery Concert series is one such beneficially innovative programme. While the inaugural event of the series in February featured the institution's resident organist, subsequent concerts will bring representatives of the younger generation of organists to the console. These include Zsuzsa Németh, the soloist for March's Gallery Concert.
What makes the Gallery Concerts unique is the way that we temporarily reconfigure the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall for them by lowering the 42-tonne acoustic panel, the canopy, which the audience has always seen high overhead under the ceiling, giving them the sense of being in a completely different space, with a different appearance and different acoustics. Everything is aimed at instilling an intimate atmosphere. Listeners will be able to sit in close proximity to the organ, on the upsta...irs galleries - after all, it is a gallery concert they came to attend! And of course there is also the fact that the concerts are shorter in length than usual. Finally, as Fassang puts it, the soloists choose works that they would put in the backpack of a good friend leaving for an uninhabited island. Music of pure joy! In Németh's case, this means pieces by Bach, Böhm, Tournemire, Franck, Oortmerssen and Duruflé. The young organist graduated from the Liszt Academy of Music in 2016 with a degree in organ and church music and went on to earn her doctorate last year. Since 2022, she has been involved in the renewal of the Lutheran Hymnal while serving as the organist of the Budaörs Lutheran Church. Teaching plays an important role in her life as well: she works with her students partly at the Fót Lutheran Cantor Training Institute and partly in Budapest.
