Bartok International Arts Weeks (Embassy of Hungary The Hague)
April 2 @ 19:30 - April 18 @ 22:30Free
Launched in the spring of 2021, on the 140th anniversary of the birth of Béla Bartók, the world-famous Hungarian composer, the Bartók Spring International Arts Weeks is a unique event series dedicated to the arts. While offering insights into his fascinating oeuvre, the festival does not restrict itself to the work of the composer, and seeks instead to represent Bartók’s spirit, creativity and outlook in countless genres, from contemporary classical music through world music, jazz and dance to visual art and pop music – the creations of the best international and Hungarian artists.
The event series seeks, in cooperation with Hungarian and European partner institutions, to make Hungary an even more attractive destination for cultural tourism in the coming years. Presented by Müpa Budapest, the Bartók Spring International Arts Weeks is hoped to gradually grow into a national, even regional, event series, which engages other major institutions of culture and cities to offer a programme that is as rich and colourful as possible.
Starting on April 2 with a performance by Henrik Nánási, the Hungarian National Philharmonic, and the Szeged Contemporary Dance Company, and concluding on April 18 with a chamber concert by René Jacobs and the Kammerorchester Basel, Bartok Spring will delight you with dance and music every evening for over two weeks.
