ORGAN CONCERTS IN THE ST. ANNE CHURCH

Organ Concert in the St. Anne Church

The St. Anne Church makes home for the organ-concert series. The St. Anne Church is one of the most beautiful baroque buildings of Budapest. The construction of the church started in 1740. In the next 200 years the church suffered from wars, floods and earthquakes. The church was reconstructed between 1970-1984.
The program of the concert was adapted for the organ of this church by Gábor Lehotka professor of the Academy of Music in Budapest. Anasztázia Bednarik, Miklós Teleki and László Attila Almásy regularly give concerts in Hungary, Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

Danube Symphony Orchestra

The Danube Symphony Orchestra was formed in 1961. Since then they have given many performances both in Hungary and abroad. The Orchestra consists of 60 professional musicians. Their repertoire covers almost every musical style from the Baroque music to music of the 20th century. Their permanent concert hall is the theatre Danube Palast (BM Duna Palota; Zrínyi utca 5).

They have had international contacts since 1983 and have been invited to play in many foreign countries. They have often accompanied solo artists at music competitions and participated in colorful operettas, ballets and oratorio performances as well. Not only do the musicians work together in this orchestra but in several chamber orchestras as well. Besides their permanent conductor András Deák they are often conducted by other Hungarian and foreign conductors. Many Hungarian and foreign guest artists have performed with the orchestra, including Giuseppe di Stefano from Italy, James Galway, a flautist from Ireland and Ray Charles, the jazz star from the USA.
