The Hungarian Dance University’s (HDU) Department of Art Theory has organised its lecture entitled Adventures in Art Theory for the third time. The guest of the event was Dr Sándor Kovács, distinguished Professor Emeritus of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music.

At the beginning of the discussion, Dr Ilona Kovács, Head of the Department of Art Theory welcomed Dr Sándor Kovács on behalf of the department, which was followed by Dr Sándor Kovács’s interesting and successful presentation.

The topic of the presentation was The French Six, a group that was officially formed in January 1920. The group’s name was given by the music critic and composer Henri Collet, who first used the term “French Six” in the journal Comœdia.

In addition to presenting the work of The French Six including Georges Auric, Louis Durey, Arthur Honegger, Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc and the only female composer, Germaine Tailleferre, Dr Sándor Kovács also pointed out the role Erik Satie played in the creation of the group of composers.
