Please allow me that, apart from my regrettable ignorance of the Hungarian language, I remain Magyar in my heart and soul from birth to the grave. As a consequence, I earnestly wish to further the progress of Hungarian music.

Currents, the joint collaboration of the music academies of Budapest and Vienna, has been making a significant contribution to the enhancement of international contemporary music discourse since 2015. On each occasion, the two institutions – with the involvement of a third partner and concentrating on a specific topic – organize symposiums, concerts and workshops. In past years, composers have arrived from Prague, Riga and Helsinki, and themes have covered such issues as the contemporary aspects of folk music, and opportunities for the utilization of the double bass, the bassoon and the guitar. This year, in place of the Viennese faculty, the distinguished Guildhall School of Music & Drama is involved in the collaboration. The name may sound familiar to domestic audiences because musicians from the London school debuted in Hungary during the 2016 Opera Exam Festival. This year, the focus of the joint concert is chamber music and the string trio genre.
