Info zu Reflections on Beauty

The piano pieces featured in this recording reflect in different ways on the question: “What is beautiful?” They answer the question by laying hold to the forces of our mind and soul and restructuring them in a peculiar, unexpected manner. If these pieces are beautiful then - by listening to them - we become able to exist in the beautiful and by the beautiful, without knowing or even needing to say more. We marvel at the many faces, the varied character and content of beauty. It is fascinating to discover how many things can be beautiful, how many contexts, experiences, thoughts and emotions feed into what we call beauty in music. Music has many faces and reflects and presents beauty in a multitude of ways.

Misi Boros
has been playing the piano since the age of 4. Starting at the age of 8, he won first place in eleven age-group competitions in his native Hungary, and he has also won competitions in Rome, Milan, and Paris. Between 2013 and 2022, he gave 300 public concerts in cities beyond historic Hungary, including New York, Milan, Zurich, Tokyo, Osaka, Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Brussels, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Munich, Zagreb, Paris, Aix-en-Provence, London, Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, Sao Paulo, and other cities. At the age of 10, in 2013, he participated in Lang Lang's International Children's Course in Munich. The Süddeutsche Zeitung wrote: ”Some children are absolutely fabulous. For example Mihály Boros Brambauer (2003), who plays with distinction, finds a lot of joy in music, and at the same time is a little intellectual with a sense for arches and dynamics." (SZ 8 November 2013) In 2017, he gave a solo concert at the Palace of Arts (Budapest, Hungary)…with the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra. The concert recording was praised by the Guardian. He has performed with twenty-two conductors and nineteen orchestras. Misi is currently a student at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich. He is a Junior Prima Prize winner.
