Budapest: City of Music


Nicholas Clapton first went to Budapest to record a mass by an obscure eighteenth-century Hungarian composer.  That visit began an ongoing love affair with the city, its culture and its classical music loving people.  

In Budapest City of Music he takes the reader to concerts in old churches, a hidden-away restaurant where the last great gipsy violinist performs every night, and to  traditional dance halls established in the 1960's so that Hungarian folk dance heritage might be preserved.

This personal account of the Hungarian capital's history in music is an engaging and affectionate musician's eye view of a great European capital.
