Hungary is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the worldwide celebrated Hungarian pianist, György Cziffra’s birthday within the framework of an official Memorial Year. UNESCO also lists the jubilee as a recommended anniversary. To commemorate Cziffra’s 100th birthday, concerts, lectures, masterclasses, children’s activities, initiatives to foster young talents will be held in the major cities and concert halls of international music life in collaboration with Hungarian and international music organisations, orchestras and the leading performers of the world.

At the end of her life, the phoenix builds a nest, sets it on fire and is consumed in the flames herself. Then a new phoenix arises from the ashes. György Cziffra’s life and work is a true reflection of the phoenix’ mission, and we sincerely hope that many more young phoenixes will be born from his ashes.

(János Balázs, artistic director)
