    Report of activities, 2019-2020 – Hungarian Composers’ Union (Hungarian Section of ISCM)

    List of events and collaborations:

    Our section worked on its regular, annual events and activities. No other event was realized in 2020 unfortunately mainly because of the COVID-19 situation.
    Benedek Istvánffy Prize named after the 18th century Hungarian composer.
    The Hungarian Composers’ Union founded the Benedek Istvánffy Prize named after the 18th century Hungarian composer. The yearly award goes to a composer below 40 for a major composition performed the previous year. The Board of the Union decided to set up a Board of Trustees from three members of the Union who listen and read all the applications and suggest one (or two) composer(s) for the prize. The final decision is done by the Board of the Union every January.
    The awarded composer in 2019 was Balázs Kecskés D. for his "Three Romances" on poems by P. Verlaine.
    Benedek Istvánffy Prize named after the 18th century Hungarian composer.
    The awarded composer in 2020 was Balázs Kecskés D. again for his "Komm" for 4 singers and string quartet (NB Kecskés was performed at the Tallinn ISCM World New Music Days in 2019).

    Miklós Orszáczky Prize – same as Instvánffy but for popular music – stronger connection to pop and jazz composers (but major pieces).
    2019: The prize was shared between two pieces. Márton Sütő for his lyric and melodic Small Bird and Samu Kéri for his passionate and dramaturgically clear piece for a jazz trio also containing real solo sections entitled Flashes.
    2020: The prize was given to the continuous and constant high level activity as singer and pianista s well to Tamara Mózes.

    Zoltán Kodály Scholarship – partner
    Our Society delegates one member in the jury of the Zoltán Kodály Scholarship which is given to young composers and musicologists yearly.
    Publishing scores thanks to the work of Board for Support of Music Publishing of the Hungarian Composers' Union – ca. 15 scores each year
    The Hungarian Composers’ Union is the manager of the equity which has a certain amount of interest every year. This interest must be used to publish contemporary Hungarian music. The Board for Support of Music Publishing of the Hungarian Composers' Union could give money to several publications in 2019.

    Facebook profile
    After a year of planning finally we have started with a Facebook profile to draw attention mainly to first performances of Hungarian composers. The activity is naturally much more seen thanks to the profile.

    Celebration of the Hungarian Composers’ Union
    We began organising a series of 3 concerts (2 serious music and a jazz) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Hungarian Composers' Union (due to the pandemic postponed to Spring 2021).
