The least important are not forbidden to dream of great things, and even modestly to aim at them, according to the measure of their abilities.

László Deák and Mónika Kecskés currently teach at the Szent István Király Secondary School of Music and the Faculty of Arts of the Széchenyi University of Győr. In addition to their pedagogical work, they are the organists of the Franciscan Church in Budapest. They refined their artistic skills in Paris, London and Vienna, and achieved outstanding results in many prestigious international organ competitions. The couple will treat the audience to musical curiosities at today’s performance. After the four-hand transcript of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, we will hear Johannes Brahms’s Prelude and Fugue in G minor, composed by the author on the basis of Bach’s famous Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. Marcel Dupré's Organ Symphony No. 2, which is rarely played in Hungarian concert halls, will be performed for the first time on the renovated organ of the Grand Hall. French composer of Lebanese descent Naji Hakim evokes dancing characters in his rhapsody, and the Finale from Petr Eben’s Sunday Music elaborates on the melody of the Gregorian antiphon Salve Regina. The concert will end with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite, which is also the Hungarian premiere of the transcript. 



We inform our audience that the performer and the program of the last concert of the “Organ in the Centre 2020 Autumn” season ticket on 5 December 2020 will change.
Swedish-born organist Hans-Ola Ericsson, who lives in Canada, will give a concert at the Liszt Academy in an other date given the uncertain travel conditions caused by the current situation.
At the concert on 5 December, you can listen a Hungarian organist couple Mónika Kecskés and László Deák.
Tickets and season tickets of the orginal concert are valid for this concert.

Thank you for your understanding!
