Vajda, János

His early creative period was characterized by free dodecaphony, then the use of repetitive techniques. This gave place later to a neoromantic, neotonal orientation. He is an important composer for the theatre, to whom a lighter tone and humorous devices are not alien. Through his handling of sound and his formal devices he likes to make frequent allusion to earlier periods in musical tradition. With his art that is rich in character he has evolved a style that is more easily acceptable to a wider audience as well. In addition to theatrical works, ballets and vocal works he also composes orchestral, chamber and solo pieces.


János Vajda was born in Miskolc on October 8, 1949. Between 1968 and 1973 he studied conducting under István Párkai and between 1970 and 1975 composition under Emil Petrovics at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, Budapest. From 1974 to 1979 he worked as répétiteur with the choir of Hungarian Radio and Television;  between 1979 and 1980 he studied composition in Amsterdam on a scholarship. Since 1981 he has been teaching at the Music Academy in Budapest.

His prizes and awards:

Erkel Prize (1981); Bartók-Pásztory Award (1990); Kossuth Prize (2003); Artisjus Prize (2008).
