Újból Héttorony Fesztivál!

Pünkösdi Régizene FesztiválSeven Towers Festival is coming soon again. Organized by Fono Budai Zenehaz, the festival starts on 8th November and features the most prominent Hungarian artists such as Marta Sebestyen, Judit Andrejszki, Muzsikas Ensemble, Sebo Ensemble, Maria Petras, Kalman Balogh (and many others). The symbol of seven towers has appeared in the Hungarian history many centuries ago and always carried the same meaning: it expresses the rich cultural heritage of the Carpatian Basin. Music is one of the most revealing ways of  presenting this unique treasure. This year the concerts will also go beyond the Hungarian borders as artists will visit Kolozsvar (Cluj-Napoca, Romania), Csikszereda (Miercurea Ciuc, Romania), Dunaszerdahely (Dunajská Stredam, Slovakia) and Csetfalva (Ukraine).

Marta Sebestyen will perform together with Judit Andrejszki and Caius Hera in Kolozsvar, Romania on the 13th November (20:00 h local time). See our related programme in our Event Calendar

Marta Sebestyen, singer, UNESCO Artist for Peace and Anzsela Toseva, pianist performed Bela Bartok’s compositions in the Hungarian Institute (Sofia) on 10 October, 2012.

Doncsev Toso, the director of the Hungarian Institute said that the idea of the concert had been inspired by the collection of Gabor Kovacs on the 20th century’s Hungarian modernist paintings exhibited in the Bulgarian National Gallery.

The exhibition hosts masterpieces from well-known artists such as Tivadar Csontvary-Koszta, Istvan Csok, and Jozsef Egry.
