Ármin Cservenák

3rd Prize Composition 2022

Ármin Cservenák is a Hungarian composer and pianist who lives and work in Graz, Austria, where he is a student of Beat Furrer at the University of the Arts. He is fascinated by the discovery and understanding of dreams and the unconscious as a gateway to a better perception of humanity and oneself. This approach is reflected in his work, particularly in these Madrigali, in which the chosen texts, which speaks of misunderstood love, shameful feelings or unreal visions, serve as a medium for the musicality and expression of the composer's personality.
