Held at the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall and the Festival Theatre, the recitals start late morning and last until late in the evening each day.
In 2018, the eleventh Marathon will focus on the Grand Master of the American Dream: Leonard Bernstein. And once again, we will go against tradition by showcasing the very best of 20th century American music.
On the day of the Marathon, Müpa Budapest will host eleven 45-minute long mini concerts. The chamber pieces will be performed in the Festival Theatre, and the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall will be the venue for the orchestral pieces.
Students of the Liszt Academy of Music will be performing at the Glass hall throughout the day; attendance at these latter Glass hall concerts is free of charge. In addition, those coming to the Marathon for more than music will be shown projection shows at the Müpa Budapest Auditorium and an exhibition in the foyer.
The ticket price for the mini concerts is HUF 990.
Buy tickets for three mini concerts and attend a fourth for free! This way you can listen to all 11 concerts for a total price of only HUF 8,910 instead of the full price of HUF 10,890.
