Müpa – Bridging Europe 2019
An annual events series organised by the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Müpa, Bridging Europe is now being staged for the seventh time. The idea is to showcase works from a certain country with high cultural values, from music to fine arts to literature. As Italy is the focus this year, Müpa will host renowned performers in the pizzica folk tradition, such as singer/tambourinist Rachele Andrioli, accordionist Rocco Nigro and legendary mandolin player Mimmo Epifani. Literarium Extra will present works by well-known Italian authors as interpreted by famous actors while jazz quartet Cinema Italia will play a selection of revered tunes by Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota.
