The presenter of this year’s last alumni webinar was Gergely Fazekas, who is a musicologist and an associate professor at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music. He held a fantastic and deeply engaging presentation, where participants could learn a lot about the traditions as well as the current trends of Hungarian music from the early Middle Ages to the contemporaries, including world-famous composers such as Béla Bartók, Zoltán Kodály, György Ligeti or György Kurtág. We asked him about his motivation for being a musicologist and a teacher as well as about the peculiarities of Hungarian music.
