Description

This is the most important church in Hungary and one of the most significant tourist attractions and the third highest building in our country. The construction started in 1851, according to the plans of Miklos Ybl, and was completed by Jozsef Kauser in 1905. In the next 50 years the church suffered from wars, storms and earthquakes. thus it was reconstructed in 1983-2003.

The program of the concert was adapted by Miklos Teleki. Together with Viragh Andras, they belong to some of the best organ artists in Hungary. The arias of the program are performed by Kolos Kovats, one of the most famous concert oratorio singers in Hungary. Among numerous prices, in 1992 he received also the highest prize Hungarian artist can acquire: the Kossuth Prize. The flute is played by Eleonora Krusic who is already known for her performances with different orchestras from Barcelona to Zurich, Graz and Vienna.
