Budapest Music Centre
“Classical music is boring, outdated, and for old people in suits.” Isn’t this something we’ve all heard? The Budapest Music Centre is far from boring. This exciting venue is set within a Neoclassical 19th-century residential building that has been renovated and turned into a modern cultural space, with the old courtyard transformed into the main concert hall. Other rooms and venues provide space for music courses and conferences. “I love playing here,” says Bence Juhász, a talented young conductor. “The acoustics are great, and I feel like the venue adds something very special to our performance every time.” If you are looking for some quality contemporary classical or jazz music, this is your best best. BMC has a wonderful and vast music library, and – crucially – it has a great restaurant.
