Zoltán Jeney, the prize-winning composer and founding member of the UMZE Association, would have turned 80 in 2023. From his oeuvre, we have chosen ensemble pieces that have already become part of the contemporary music repertoire, or have the potential to become such classics. As a "commentary" on the life of Jeney, we have chosen a chamber piece by his master, the Italian Goffredo Petrassi, and the premiere of a new work by Zsolt Serei and Ádám Kondor, offering the listener an artistic and historical perspective.
