The Day of Hungarian Culture will be celebrated in Bucharest today by a range of events organised by the Balassi Institute (the Hungarian Institute) of Bucharest. The Hungarian Institute in the Capital is hosting from 18:00 today the photo exhibition ‘Capitals Cities in the European Union’ and, from 19:00 a piano recital offered by Kiss Peter from Hungary, the institution informed. The 7th edition of the International Salon of Romanian and Hungarian Photographic Artists Everywhere – organised under the patronage of Presidents Traian Basescu and Ader Janos – addressed the theme of Capitals in the European Union. Starting from 2013, the ‘Carol Pop de Szathmáry’ International Photography Salon has been integrated into the International Photography Salon, organised for the first time, and seeking to popularise the personality of the outstanding photographic artist. The international salon displays photographs short-listed by the ‘Nufarul’ Photographic Artists’ Club of Oradea based on a competition organised with the help of the Euro Art Foto and the County Centre for the Protection of the Cultural Heritage of Oradea. Traditionally, the Romanian Cultural Institute in Budapest organises a salon with the same name during the same period. This year, the ‘Capital Cities of the European Union’ opened in Budapest on Friday. During the Bucharest opening to be attended by the photographic artists Daniela Borcea, Marius Necula and Cristinel Mortici, plaquettes and diplomas will be offered to the authors of the best photographs. Kiss Péter is the winner of the Haydn-Mendelssohn piano competition organised by the Hungarian Radio Station in 2009, a Fischer Annie bursary beneficiary and a Ph.D student of the Liszt Ferenc Music Academy of Budapest. The Bucharest public has already had the chance to listen to him in a chamber music formation next to the clarinetist Sz?cs Péter, in a brilliant show of contemporary Hungarian music. This time, the young musician will perform as a soloist proposing an inciting programme where he searches for and finds very interesting connections between the works of old time and contemporary composers. Entry to Kiss Péter recital is free.
