Our visit to the Organ Concert at St Stephen's Basilica was the high light of our ten day visit to Budapest. The live performance in the Cathedral with the organ, flute and voice far exceeds that what can be experienced listening to a CD. One can understand how the composers and musicians sought to create music in such a beautiful setting that uplifts the soul of all who hear and experience the performance.

The concert in this lovely, grand church featured both Hungarian and international classics. Our program, which ran on Thursday evenings included works by Vivaldi, Bach, Albinoni, Mozart, Schubert, Listz and Bizet. The musicians included the organist, a flautist as well as one of Hungary's most famous concert and oratorio singers. A delightful evening sure to be enjoyed by any music lover.

A very good experience for our first day in Budapest. The bountiful Basilica was ideal for the concert. Excellent organist, flautist and English soprano - not so sure about the 'tenor'. The Danube river cruise was marvellous, good food, entertainment and service.

An excellent Organ concert with Tenor and Flautist, quality musicians in a superb venue. The following cruise down the Danube was also excellent with good food, musicians and views of the floodlit buildings and banks of the river. I would recommend this without reservation.
