Exhibition of contemporary string instruments accompanied by musical programmes
On the third weekend of June, Pesti Vigadó will host the event series “Celebration of Hungarian Violin”, which looks back to a history of over 15 years. The two-day event offers a rich programme of gesamtkunstwerk events. The focus of the programme series will be on presenting new instruments designed by contemporary string instrument makers. In addition to young talented violinists, the great masters of the past will also be evoked and the audience will have the privilege of listening to world premiers. An outstanding event of the series features a music talk in commemoration of the 5th anniversary of the bestowal of the EMMY Award to violinist Vilmos Oláh. On Sunday, a traditional wine tasting event will also provide a lavish gastronomic experience for the audience of the closing concert.
