Between April the 21st and May the 5th, Miskolc and Győr will join the line-up of hosts for the Bartók Spring, one of the most anticipated event series of the season. Beginning on the first day of April, it will feature special concerts and performances, unusual public events, and a lively festival atmosphere throughout.
Already confirmed for the countrywide event of the Bartók Spring International Arts Weeks: Latin jazz legend, Arturo Sandoval; brilliant Mexican tenor, Ramón Vargas; the American pioneers of vertical dance, BANDALOOP; world-famous musical comedy duo, Igudesman & Joo; the most exciting singer-songwriters of the Hungarian popular music scene, including Ohnody, Дeva, Noé Saya, and Cristina Drimba; the Ballet Company of Győr, the Szeged Contemporary Dance Company, the Ballet Pécs, and the Hungarian National Dance Ensemble; and the Ritmo Piknik, featuring the Bohemian Betyars, Los Orangutanes, Napfonat, Romengo, and others.
“It goes without saying that Bartók’s spirit, and the unmistakable atmosphere of the festival bearing his name, shouldn’t be limited only to Budapest, as the artist himself drew inspiration from across the entirety of Hungarian culture. When we launched Bartók Spring, one of our most important objectives was to gradually expand the programme series to a national scale, inspiring both Hungarian audiences and visitors from abroad to join our outstanding artists in exploring Hungary’s beautiful cities outside of Budapest,” says Csaba Káel, CEO of Müpa Budapest and founder of the Bartók Spring International Arts Weeks.
