People who have saved this event:


A live performance highlighting Lukas Ligeti’s compositions from 1988 to 2016, and the lasting influence of the Bauhaus movement on the composer’s creative process.


This concert closes the Hungarian Cultural Center's festival, Modernity X Hungary, focusing on the legacy of the great artist/designer László Moholy-Nagy, and it coincides with the exhibition, Moholy-Nagy: Future Present, at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum this summer. 

Lukas Ligeti's ongoing artistic dialogue with the Bauhaus artists, especially the work of Moholy-Nagy, has led him to investigate new forms of rhythmic perception and startling juxtapositions between the “strict” and the “playful” - both key issues for Bauhaus artists. Program highlights include the world premiere of a quintet for soprano and four musicians (an homage to Moholy-Nagy sung by Ariadne Greif), several compositions for large ensembles performed by Contemporaneous, and a 30-minute tour de force for marimba presented by the incomparable virtuoso Ji Hye Jung.
