This year marks the 20th International Harp Festival, a celebration which continues to attract the best harpists in the world to Hungary. As part of this annual programme, which has been held since 1999, top foreign artists such as Marielle Nordmann, Jana Boušková, Maria Graf and Columbian jazz harpist Edmar Castaneda have appeared on stage, though the event also provides a platform for Hungarian musicians, too. As Andrea Vigh, founder and artistic director of the festival, accurately put it, thanks to the master classes, concerts and instrument exhibitions, the festival has developed into a professional meeting and international rendezvous for harp instrumentalists. The series of programmes starting on 5 October concludes with a gala concert in the Grand Hall of the Liszt Academy on Sunday 14 October.
