Cancelled: Beethoven Sonata Weekend @ Palace Of Arts, 21 – 22 November
From Müpa: We regret to inform you that, pursuant to the decision made by the Hungarian government with respect to the situation surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, all of Müpa Budapest's performances have been cancelled from 11 November until 10 December 2020, and the building will remain closed throughout this period.

Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas: testaments of a personal tone in which we can bear witness to experimentation.

Over the course of the two days of the Beethoven Sonata Weekend, lasting from Saturday afternoon to Sunday evening, it is primarily Beethoven himself we will be celebrating in the year of the 250th anniversary of his birth, along with his inexhaustable imaginative power and masterful skill, as well as his poetic and human greatness.

However, this celebration also offers an opportunity to enjoy a survey of the extraordinary – even measured by international standards – luminaries of the Hungarian school of piano playing:

32 performers, some of them at or near the start of their careers, others fully established veterans, and some older ones who are even more seasoned, 32 personalities, 32 approaches, and 32 different experiences of Beethoven when listening to the 32 different works.

Distributed over the course of nine concerts, and what is particularly important: we will get to encounter the works in the chronological order that credibly reveals the process of artistic development. Who could miss out on this alluring adventure?

The full programme can be found here.
