HerMeS Musical Lecture - Critical and Creative - The Art of Translation

Noémi Győri and Anna  T. Szabó
Monday, May 25, 2020, 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Noémi Győri flutist and Anna T. Szabó poet and translator collaborate in their interdisciplinary and interactive lecture to demonstrate the intertwining nature of musical and literary translation. What is the creative role of the translator? Can an instrument have it’s own language? A sneak-peak in the workshop of these two artists, flavoured with some music of Beethoven.


Hermes is the god of travelers, and a symbolic figure of transition in classical mythology. Accordingly, the main idea behind the HerMeS public lecture series, organized jointly by the Cultural Heritage Studies Program and the Center for Arts and Culture at CEU, is to nurture and renewal of cultural heritage. The series offers its audience a combination of talks and concerts, allowing them to travel along the borderlands of the performing arts and academic lectures.
