The Cziffra Festival is showcasing Hungarian classical music heritage in the summer months both at home and abroad, the organisers said on Saturday.
On July 1, at the Krakow Polish Music Festival, Hungarian pianist Janos Balazs will join Sinfonietta Cracovia in Chopin’s Piano Concerto in E minor.
On July 8, in Bulgaria, János Balázs will again feature in cooperation with the New Millennium International Academy, giving a masterclass to young musicians in a workshop on Hungarian composers and performers, to be followed by a gala concert the following day with the Rousse Philharmonic Orchestra. Violinist Miranda Liu and Russian pianist Ilija Kondratyev will also perform, while a student chosen by Balazs will also have the chance to perform. The events follow from concerts held under the banner of the Cziffra Festival in Istanbul in June. HERE we wrote about how this year’s festival prices increased in Hungary compared to 2022.
