History and concept

About the festival

The idea of Festival Academy Budapest came up in 2002, when Barnabás Kelemen applied for a job at the Liszt Academy…

The founders

“If one of the basic ideas behind Festival Academy Budapest is music education, than the other is the joy of making and listening to music. After last year’s festival someone told us that the week was like a wonderful school trip. This image fits well with our vision.”

Chaos and Harmony (2019)

Harmony created out of chaos will be felt day by day during the festival, all the more as according to Greek mythology the act of creation is closely connected to love.
