Add this event to your Google Calendar.
The highlight of the 2021 György Cziffra Centennial Year, this concert will take place one hundred years to the day after the incomparable piano virtuoso's birth. It is no coincidence that the symphony orchestra taking the stage for the evening is the Philharmonique de Radio France, as it was in France that the tempest-tossed Hungarian artist found a new home as an émigré and developed an intense relationship with the music world there. The programme also includes a world première by Péter Eötvös, a composer linked in many ways - both through his mother and his own childhood memories - to the great pianist.
The government of Hungary has pronounced the hundredth anniversary of the birth of György Cziffra to be a memorial year, and UNESCO has added it to its list of jointly celebrated anniversaries.
The program is taking place as part of the György Cziffra anniversary year with the support of the Prime Minister's Office and the Bethlen Gábor Fund.
