Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pianist Mariann Marczi performs a very personal programme of 20th century works from her native Hungary, featuring pieces that form two pillars at either ends of the last century, grouped between 1907 and 1918 (Bartók and Kodály) and from 1976 to 1989 (Ligeti, Kurtág, László Lajtha, Zoltán Jeney and Gyula Csapó).

studied piano at the Béla Bartók Conservatory in Budapest and later in the city’s Liszt Academy of Music, continued her postgraduate studies in Berlin at the Hochschule für Musik ‘Hanns Eisler’, and took part in masterclasses with György Kurtág. - Odradek

She writes: “I was fortunate to work with György
Read more Kurtág at several of his masterclasses - during the International Bartók Seminar we did an intense and detailed analysis of his Splinters together. I have also worked several times with Zoltán Jeney and Gyula Csapó on their compositions. My doctoral thesis was the first complete survey to analyse all 18 of Ligeti’s Piano Etudes. I selected my favourite, Fém (which means “metal”), for this CD. I have presented at conferences on the piano works of Zoltán Kodály and László Lajtha, and I won a prize at the 27th International Smetana Piano Competition Plzen for my performance of Bartók’s Three Burlesques.” - Mariann Marczi Read less
