The MVM Concerts series originally started with the aim of bringing world-famous pianists to appear in front of Budapest audiences. However, over the years the profile has broadened considerably: today, concertgoers not only enjoy events representing the original purpose, but also instrument-presentation concerts, programmes picked from the Gödöllő International Harp Festival, and even recitals by Junior Prima Prize young artists: these events are organized at several venues in the capital and at others around the country. This year the concerts are crowned by a special event focusing on two instruments, the harp and the piano. The former is played by Liszt Prize-laureate Andrea Vigh, president of the Liszt Academy and head of department teaching harpist students, while the piano is ably ‘steered’ by Junior Prima and Liszt Prize-pianist János Balázs, artistic director of the Cziffra Festival.
