Every year since 2008, Müpa Budapest and the Budapest Festival Orchestra have put on an all-day marathon production presenting the very best work of a given composer, with a series of consecutive concerts from morning until late evening in the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall and the Festival Theatre. From Bach and Brahms to Bartók and Bernstein, many prominent composers have taken the starring role on these days – with Beethoven already serving twice, for example. The 2023 marathon will focus on Sergei Prokofiev, who passed away 70 years ago. The Russian composer wrote exciting symphonies, concertos, chamber compositions and piano pieces, among other works, so we will be able to present a rich cross-section of his diverse œuvre to our audience over the course of the day. Students of the Liszt Academy will perform free concerts in the Glass Hall, while memorable performances will be brought to life on the screen in the Auditorium.
