About The Budapest Organ Concert:
St. Stephen’s Basilica is one of Budapest's most beautiful and significant tourist attractions. Named in honour of Hungary's first king and founder, it's the country's third tallest building and one of the two tallest in the capital. Construction started in 1851 under the guidance of one of the greatest Hungarian architects, Miklós Ybl, and was completed by József Klauser in 1905.
Over the next 50 years St. Stephen’s weathered damage from two world wars, storms and earthquakes - leading to large scale restoration works from 1983 to 2003. Now resplendent in much of its former glory, the cathedral is popular with international visitors and even plays host to weekly organ concerts.
This concert is lead by the talented Milkós Teleki, who is regarded as one of the best organists in the country. The program's arias are performed by Kolos Kováts, one of Hungary's most renowned concert and oratorio singers. He received the Kossuth Prize in 1992, which is the highest honour for any artist in the country.
The flutist is Eleonóra Krusic, who is famous for her performances with various international orchestras, from Barcelona to Zürich, Graz and Vienna.
