Café Budapest Festival

Published on 06-10-2016 Agenda

The music world invades Budapest, and the entire city is abuzz with chamber orchestras, quartets, and jazz quintets…

Imagine visiting Budapest by letting your ears be your only guides. In a square or a garden, a quintet begins playing Schoenberg. Elsewhere, it's Boulez; and a little further on, Béla Bartok.

The Café Budapest Contemporary Arts Festival pays tribute to the most illustrious names in classical music, but it also highlights the works of young composers. The invited performers come not only from Hungary, such as the Kelemen Quartet, but from all over the world, Poland's Witold Lutosławski String Quartet being but one example. Theatres and opera halls are used, and literature and contemporary dance are also showcased.

Autumn is always beautiful on the Danube, making this festival the perfect opportunity to discover Budapest in a wholly different manner.
