“Art is eternal,” Hippocrates said.

This evening features a meeting point between past and present: upon commemorating a 100th and a 90th birth anniversary, this concert evokes the memory of Hungarian composers András Szőllősy and Sándor Szokolay. At the concert, future generation violin soloists of the Hungarian Symphony Orchestra Miskolc Amira Abouzahra and Miriam Abouzahra will certainly captivate their audience. The performance is conducted by Liszt and Bartók-Pásztory Award-winner conductor Mátyás Antal.

Founded on 1st November 1963 as a professional orchestra, the Hungarian Symphony Orchestra Miskolc looks back on a long-established history and tradition. The most-acclaimed Hungarian composers and soloists are regular guest performers at the Orchestra’s concerts. An Orchestra is composed of 89 professional musicians, who come up to both Hungarian and global standards in expertise. All members of the Orchestra are highly qualified professionals. The Orchestra regards its mission the presentation of contemporary compositions to the general public. Organised in cooperation with the Hungarian Academy of Arts, this memorial concert in commemoration of András Szőllősy and Sándor Szokolay is the second event in the series of such performances.
