Izabella Simon and Dénes Várjon’s chamber music festival is being hosted by the Liszt Academy for the third occasion, this year under the title Magic Mountain. During the 4-day festival, top Hungarian and international artists, close friends of the couple who came up with the idea of the festival, take to the stage in what promises to be a series of unique musical experiences due to the event’s profundity, personal approach and remarkable connections. Fairy tales, fantasies and little-known stories are in dialogue with each other at these concerts, the programmes of which were created by the associations deriving from the underlying content of the free-running imagination of the two artistic directors and the works.
