Gergely Rákász: Stories of Christmas Gergely Rákász is a famous Hungarian organ musician. His concerts mean that it’s officially the Christmas season for lots of people. At least this is what we learned from the floods of e-mails and Facebook messages that he and his team always receive after the concerts. The concert will incorporate 300 years of vibrant music together. About the concert 2nd George, the king of England who reminds us of friends we do not really like and we can see how he gets Händel around his finger. This is how the Firework music is created.

The audience will experience how today’s movie musical scores borrow from the classics that were written 100+ years ago. Berlioz Rákoczi march music is always played at every concert during the remembrance year of Rákoczi. We are going to figure out which stands closer to people: Vak Pali (who was he at all?!) or the god of the Hungarians. He will try to put this beautiful piece of music back to the center of appreciation […]

Interest in each other’s cultures results in various festivals and connected events both in Ireland and Hungary. The basis of the cultural and sacral connections between the two countries is the Weeping Virgin painting, also known as the Irish Madonna, which was rescued by Walter Lynch, bishop of Clonfert in Ireland and brought to Győr during the times of the religious persecution under Oliver Cromwell. The painting wept blood on March 17th, 1697, on Saint Patrick’s day, the patron saint of the Irish from 6 to 9 in the morning. Later it was explained by the event that this was the day when Catholic priests loyal to their faith were banned from Ireland in that year. The festival also takes place at that time in 2018.
