Organ Concert at St.Stephen's Basilica - Theatre Concert Program
Enjoy a cozy organ concert in one of the most beautiful neo-classical buildings of Budapest, the St. Stephen's Basilica! The most remarkable church of Hungary is also one of the most significant of tourist attractions, and also the third highest building in the whole country.
Its construction started in 1851, according to the plans of Miklós Ybl, and was completed by József Kauser in 1905. In the next 50 years the church suffered from wars, storms and earthquakes, and was finally reconstructed 1983-2003.
The program of the concert was adapted by Miklos Teleki who is among some of the best organ artists in Hungary. The arias of the program are performed by Kolos Kováts, one of the most famous concert and oratorio singers in Hungary.
