Did you know that Pécs had an orchestra already in the 1700s, and the Viennese musicians in it earned twice as much as the musicians in Buda?
Did you know that on his way to Pécs, Ferenc Liszt stayed at a friend’s in Mecseknádasd and composed his first Hungarian-language song there?
The musical walk organised in collaboration with the Pannon Society of Friends of Music for the 210th anniversary of the Pannon Philharmonic will be full of wit, anecdotes and curiosities. Our two tour guides, András Kövér and Zsuzsi Szilágyi, will talk about in Hungarian! :) the past and present of the individual music-related sites and their thematic relevance. The destination of our two-hour walk enriched with breakdancers and pop music breaks is the Kodály Centre, where a concert, titled Peer Gynt’s Secret, will await the participants of the walk.
