About the Event

St. Stephen's Basilica is one of the most impressive buildings in Budapest and a popular location for classical concerts. Discover the spectacular sound of the church's organ in a performance featuring award‐winning organist Miklos Teleki. 
Prize‐winning singer Kolos Kováts is the vocal soloist and the accomplished flute player Eleonóra Krusic completes the ensemble. Together, the artists play highlights of the classical music repertoire.

About the Venue
The third largest church in Budapest, the magnifcent St. Stephen´s Basilica is devoted to Hungary´s first king, St Stephen I, whose 'incorruptible' mummified right hand is kept in the Basilica´s vault. Construction started in 1851 and ended 54 years later, presenting the public with a beautiful Neoclassical church. The interior is modest yet beautiful, decorated with colorful mosaics. A trip up the dome to contemplate the charming view of the city is highly recommended.
The Basilica has always played an important role in the musical life of Budapest. In the 20th century it was a key venue for choral concerts, and both contemporary and classical music. The Basilica houses an enormous organ, played at regular Monday concerts, and the Basilica's choir performs across Europe.

    Es war ein sehr schönes Konzert. Der St. Stephansdom bietet eine wunderbare Akustik, auch im hinteren Bereich. Die Musiker waren gut und die Auswahl der Stücke ebenfalls. Ein sehr schönes Erlebnis, jederzeit wieder.
