The concert was inaugurated by Ambassador Dr Ferenc Komen on the Arad Martyrs’ Commemoration Day, who in his salute emphasized that although diplomatic relations date back centuries, Hungarian-British cooperation and mutual recognition go back much further and overlap with the whole of society. .
He stated that the British royal family, through a Hungarian nobleman from Transylvania, Countess Claudia Reddy, also had Hungarian ancestors in the straight branch.
The concert was opened wide by Liszt’s symphonic poem Hamlet, after which Barnabas Clement performed Mozart’s Third Violin Concerto with his violin playing.
