Árpád Balázs

Real Name:
Balázs Árpád
Árpád Balázs (born October 1, 1937 in Szentes, Hungary) is a classical music composer. He studied composition in Budapest and Rome, and presented a series about classical music on Hungarian television.

He studied at the conservatory of Szeged, after that at the Ferenc-Liszt Academy in Budapest, in the composition class of F. Farkas (1961-1964).

As a successor of Béla Bartók, frequently using popular folk songs, he didn't limit himself to being a postserialist of bartokian ethics. The importance of his choral works, make him in fact a continuation of Zoltán Kodály.
Balázs also composed symphonic music, ballet music, fourteen easy pieces for piano, arrangements of folk songs and music for film and theatre.
