'Beethoven Marathon' @ Palace Of Arts, 2 February
Every year since 2008, the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Müpa Budapest have put on an all-day marathon production presenting the very best work of a given composer, with a series of consecutive concerts from morning until late evening in the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall and the Festival Theatre.

After marathons of Tchaikovsky, Dvořák, Beethoven, Schubert, Mozart, Bartók, Bach, Stravinsky, Mendelssohn and Schumann, Brahms, Bernstein and American music, Debussy and Ravel, the chosen composer is once again Beethoven.

His incomparably rich artistic career easily provides enough performance material for 2020 too, a year when the whole world will commemorate the 250th anniversary of his birth.

Students of the Liszt Academy of Music will perform free concerts in the Glass Hall, while memorable performances will be brought to life on the screen in the Auditorium.

Date and time:
Sunday, 2 February, from 10:30 am
