Our visit to the Organ Concert at St Stephen's Basilica was the high light of our ten day visit to Budapest. The live performance in the Cathedral with the organ, flute and voice far exceeds that what can be experienced listening to a CD.
One can understand how the composers and musicians sought to create music in such a beautiful setting that uplifts the soul of all who hear and experience the performance.

The concert in this lovely, grand church featured both Hungarian and international classics. Our program, which ran on Thursday evenings included works by Vivaldi, Bach, Albinoni, Mozart, Schubert, Listz and Bizet. The musicians included the organist, a flautist as well as one of Hungary's most famous concert and oratorio singers. A delightful evening sure to be enjoyed by any music lover.
