 Hungarian music at the Acropolis Museum, 25 October 2013,  starts at 7 pm

On the occasion of the Hungarian Presidency in the Visegrad Group (2013–2014) and the National Day of Hungary, the Acropolis Museum's second floor balcony will provide the stage for an exceptional duet by Edan Duo. The Edan Duo comprises of two outstanding soloists, the violinist Édua Zádory and the pianist Anastasiia Dombrovska. Édua and Anastasiia (hence their name Edan Duo) formed a duo that has passion, personality and an astonishing homogeneity, where the boisterous and confident interpretation of Zadory is in perfect artistic harmony with the fiery and impetuous playing of Dombrovska.

The two talented musicians have already adapted an international approach and are well-respected abroad: Édua Zádory has had a 10-year-long international experience as a soloist and chamber musician, whereas Anastasiia Dombrovska has been a soloist with the most important orchestras of Europe on tour.

This will take place on Friday 25 October 2013, at 7 p.m., with an original program dedicated to renowned Hungarian and international music composers. Famous classical works by Ferencz Liszt and Jenö Hubay will be performed, as well as contemporary Hungarian music by György Kurtág. The program also includes widely-known melodies from the Hungarian dances of Johannes Brahms and the Hungarian Rhapsody No 2 by Ferencz Liszt.

This musical event is held with the kind support of the Hungarian Embassy in Athens.

Every Friday at the Acropolis Museum and Friday 25 October will be no exception - the Museum will remain open until 10 p.m. and the restaurant until 12 midnight with a special menu based on classical and traditional recipes, giving particular emphasis on local products from regional Greece.
