The 40th International "Ferenc Liszt" Record Grand Prix  Aimez-Vous Liszt ?  The best Liszt recordings of 2016 are to be sent to the Liszt Society,  four copies of each, to arrive before April 30, 2017.
39th Liszt Ferenc International Grand Prix du Disque, 2016 In   2016   the   Liszt   Ferenc   Society   organised   the   International   Grand   Prix   du   Disque   again,   after   a   two   years   break.   In   2014   and   2015   only   2 CDs   were   submitted   per   year,   and   it   seemed   unreasonable   to   arrange   a   competition   or   judgement   process   based   on   such   a   limited   amount of   musical   material.   In   order   to   solve   the   situation,   our   Society   introduced   new   regulations   in   2015. The   main   element   of   the   new   rules   is   that if   there   are   less   than   5   musical   productions   submitted   in   a   certain   year,   the   recordings   from   subsequent   years   will   be   judged   in   one. The Statutes of the competition are available on our website www.lisztsociety.hu. Accordingly,   this   year   the   jury   evaluated   the   recordings   submitted   to   the   Society   in   the   years   2013-2015.   The   deadline   was April   30th   2016, and 15 CDs were submitted. Minutes recorded on June 28th 2016 of the jury’s decision regarding the 39th Liszt Ferenc International Grand Prix du Disque. Persons present: Sándor Kovács, chairman of the jury, József Bánky, Mária Eckhardt, Zoltán Farkas, László Gombos, Ferenc Kerek and János Ferenc Szabó. The jury has evaluated 15 discs altogether for the 39th Grand Prix du Disque, which had been submitted in the last 3 years.

Jury has taken the following decisions: The Grand Prix has been awarded to:   Motivation: Goran   Filipec    “faithfully   follows   each   of   Liszt’s   instructions   on   tempo,   dynamics   and   characters,   with   a   sensitive   framing   as   well   –   the composer would have been satisfied exactly with such a performance” The   flawless   and   convincing   power   of   Balázs   Szokolay’s    live   concert   recording   of   Liszt’s   Sonata   in   h   minor   well   deserves   our   full appreciation. The solutions in his performance for shaping, musical and technical issues are all exemplary. A certificate of recognition has been awarded to: József Balog for his performance of Transcendental Études Motivation: “A   pianist   of   outstanding   abilities:   solving   the   most   difficult   technical   elements   perfectly,   but   always   giving   the   experience   of   a   live   concert   as well.” The   publishers   and   performers   of   each   submitted   CDs   will   be   notified   about   the   decision   in   writing   by   June   15th,   and   the   awardees   including the publishers as well – will be invited to participate at the award giving ceremony, to be held on October 20th 2016.
