e-Open Rehearsal Room series

362 minutes of 100% Music

Chamber music concerts online

 

Late last week, after a long wait, we artists of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra and the Hungarian National Choir were finally able to make it back to the beloved rehearsal room on the sixth floor of the Müpa Budapest building that is so full of memories for us. And we even held an open rehearsal – however this time without you, the audience.

Fortunately, we had an outstanding team of audio/video media professionals to capture the music the way we wanted you to hear it. Our music was full of joy. It resembled, in some ways, the experiences our grandparents might have undergone when, after times of warfare, everyone could happily join together again in the shared experience of playing in a string quartet, chamber ensemble, orchestra or choir.

Over the course of the three days we spent there, our ensembles comprising 110 artists have recorded for you a total of 362 minutes of 100% music, and from 18 June we will be offering them to you as eight videos of about 45 minutes on our Facebook page and website, starting at 7.30 pm each Thursday evening.

PLEASE JOIN US AS OUR e-OPEN REHEARSAL ROOM GUESTS!
