Márton Illés


“When I look at the structure, the syntax of my music, I realise that its basic gestures are very Hungarian, although I am actually a German product, ‘made in Germany’,” says Márton Illés, who also appears as a concert pianist and conductor. As an avowed anti-serialist, he is in no doubt: “Music conveys emotional as well as physical and gestural content.” Born in Budapest, he studied under Wolfgang Rihm in Karlsruhe, among others. His music is regularly performed by leading orchestras. In 2023, the Berliner Philharmoniker premièred his [Lég-szín-tér].
