works of other composers have been comprehensively investigated. The present study examines two orchestrations Dohnányi made in 1928, on the occasion of the Schubert Centenary. Both being virtually unknown to today's public, these are the orchestral

During his lifetime hundreds of portraits were made of Ferenc Liszt in a great diversity of genres by foreign and Hungarian artists alike. Medallists also commemorated Liszt on the centenary of his birth in 1911. Numerous one-sided medals and plaques were cast or struck but some of them, like that of Fülöp Ö. Beck, do have motives on the reverse as well. Beck had been working on a Liszt plaque for years. The starting inspiration was the Liszt mask he had personally received from the aging sculptor Alajos Stróbl. He prepared several designs for the reverse. The series of the reverse variations is significant because Beck’s aim was not to present an allegory about Liszt’s figure or create symbols for his compositions as was the custom in medal art, but to capture the essence and the infinity of music. Fülöp Ö. Beck’s Liszt plaque is an outstanding exponent not only of the Hungarian but the international medal art.
The history of American-Hungarian relations has enjoyed renewed interest in the past thirty years. Despite this fact, there are still many uncovered or poorly documented episodes and persons concerning this academic territory. This article wishes to shed some light on one such character and period. It was in 1922 that the United States and Hungary established official diplomatic relations for the first time. Consequently the two countries exchanged ministers; thus, a long line of American ministers began to come and reside in Hungary. The very first of them was Theodore Brentano, who served five years in Budapest, between 1922 and 1927, but who seems to have disappeared from historical memory in both countries. Since 2022 marks the centenary of establishing diplomatic relations between the two countries, this article will introduce Theodore Brentano, the first American minister for Hungary and his work there. Brentano's years coincided with momentous events in Hungary in the post-Trianon era and were a time of relatively active relations between Washington and Budapest. Using primary and secondary sources alike, this article will hopefully illustrate a sorely missed part of the history of American-Hungarian history and rekindle interest in what took place a century ago.
The life and works of Mozart are central to a due understanding of Liszt’s development as pianist, composer, and conductor. Yet, this fact receives inadequate attention in scholarly studies. Liszt readily acknowledged that he ‘owed the greater part of what he was as a musician to Mozart’ and found identity and goal as he sought, as pianist and composer, to emulate the endeavors of the Viennese master. Like Mozart, he was a ‘pioneer of progress’ who refused ‘to be bound by accepted modes of expression.’ Like Mozart, ‘he pushed virtuosity to utmost limits.’ Like Mozart, he was seen by many as an iconic figure of German nationalism. In later life, Liszt took comfort from the fact that Mozart, his illustrious role-model, was not spared bitter experiences. ‘As with every great genius,’ both endured ‘pain and suffering’ in order to accomplish their task. In so many areas of musical activity and experience, Liszt mirrored his great Viennese master. Throughout Liszt’s life, he remained devoted to the scrupulous study and execution of Mozart’s music and played an important part in promoting a better understanding of both man and music via podium and press before, during, and after the Mozart Centenary Celebrations in Vienna in January 1856.
A tanulmány a tranzakcióanalízis szemszögéből abba a tágabb kérdéskörbe világít be, milyen az esélye a gyakorlatban születő elméleteknek és módszereknek arra, hogy a korszerű pszichológiai tudomány továbbra is önálló irányzatként számoljon velük. Az iskola olyan szellemi és szakmai tartalékai vannak a fókuszban, amelyek biztosítják számára, hogy rendre megküzdjön az új idők társadalmi és professzionális kihívásaival és megőrizve sajátszerűségét, képes legyen megújulni. Kitüntetetten foglalkozunk a krízis- és problémakezelési technikák feltérképezésével, az új kihívások fogadási stratégiáinak bemutatásával egyrészt az iskolában az ezredfordulón lezajlott krízis kreatív meghaladásának tapasztalatai, valamint az alapító, Eric Berne születésének 100. évfordulójához kapcsolódó számvetés alapján. A tanulmány számba veszi a szakmai közösség identitásépítésének, az optimista jövőképek kimunkálásának fontos szerepét. Végül bemutatja, hogy kiérlelt megküzdési stratégiáinak birtokában a TA hogyan határozza meg jelenlegi feladatait, mit tesz, hogy erősítse elfogadottságát.
