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.

Folk Dance House Day

Cancelled

 

 

 

Dance House Day is organized all over the country on the anniversary of the first ‘urban’ dance house in Hungary. The gala folk music concert is part of a national series, which this year is being organized jointly by the Folk Music Department of the Liszt Academy of Music and the Concert Centre of the Liszt Academy. István Pávai is the concert organizer; he has already proved on numerous occasions that using scientific results and the demand for quality entertainment are not mutually exclusive factors. The Béla Halmos Trophy and the Béla Halmos Memorial Medal will be presented at a ceremony. The former was established by the Hungarian Heritage House, the latter by the Association of Friends of the Hungarian Heritage House. The Trophy, which is actually the violin once owned by Béla Halmos, is presented to an under-40-year-old musician actively playing traditional folk instrumental music in dance houses, who in the course of his/her work maintains contact with Hungarian communities living beyond the country’s border. The Memorial Medal recognizes outstanding professional and community ‘background work’ within the framework of the Dance House Movement.
