Dr László Stachó

Kodály Institute, Liszt Academy of Music, Budapest & Faculty of Music, University of Szeged (Hungary)

Visiting Fellow of the Faculty of Music (until 30 June 2017)

Dr Stachó undertakes research at the Faculty with Nicholas Cook, the 1684 Professor of Music, as a continuation of his previous Fellowship back in 2014. His research focuses on the analysis of piano performance, with the aim to trace the trajectory from pre-modernist to modernist performance through the gradual change of performers’ subjective experience of time, based on historical recordings and combining approaches drawn from recent developments in theoretical, empirical, and systematic musicology, with an emphasis on such major artists of the Liszt piano tradition as Béla Bartók and Ernő Dohnányi.
