Our first mini festival of the year is Fonó Szalon, a unique blend of various amusements: great concerts, splendid wines, exhibitions, and salon discussions. Highlighted event of the Salon is the Wine & Violin – Violin Makers’ Salon weekend, a meeting where masters from first-rate Hungarian workshops exhibit their instruments.
Highlighted concerts of the Salon are associated with other enjoyments: we open exhibitions, taste great wines, and provide ample opportunity to discuss various issues with significant characters of Hungarian cultural life.
Wine & Violin – Violin Makers’ Salon is a parade of Hungarian masters’ first-rate violins with a chance to examine and try these special artifacts in the spot. There are only a handful of professions in the world which are engaged in manufacturing solely individual products shaped completely by the manufacturer’s hand. Violin making is one of these professions. Each year, the Salon features a special classical music performance by an internationally acclaimed violinist or ensemble such as Kristóf Baráti or Ádám Banda in the previous years. This year the world famous Keller Quartet gives a concert at Wine and Violin salon. Presenting exquisite masterpieces, violins reveal their most intimate secrets to us.
