Programme Note

Experience a Night of Excellence with the Queen of Instruments: The Organ! Join us for a unique concert titled 'The Night of the Organs,' organised by the Liszt Institute London together with Filharmonia Hungary. Taking place on 18 May 2024, from 6:00 pm at St Paul's Knightsbridge Church in London, this event celebrates the diverse and unique qualities of the organ. From its ability to sound intimate to filling the halls like an orchestra, the organ's intricacy and complexity never fail to impress. 

The Night of the Organs program aims to showcase the instrument's versatility, with performances by renowned organist Ferenc Szilárd Kovács from the University of Pécs, Faculty of Arts. This international event, previously successful in Hungary, is now coming to London. Don't miss the opportunity to be part of history, as this day may mark a Guinness World Record attempt with the simultaneous premiere of a composition by Ádám Balázs, the composer of the Oscar-winning film 'Everybody.' 

Attendance is free, but registration is required. Reserve your spot now!
