Our ears are the closest to our souls
“Today we visited Budapest with the Jászság 2, 3 and 4 groups. First we visited the House of Hungarian Music, which was very beautiful and interesting. The building was designed by the Japanese star architect Fudzsimoto Sosuke, who intended a translucent glass structure close to nature, in the middle of the trees of the City Park. On level minus 2, at the entrance to the permanent exhibition space, we were given headphones to listen to music from the current musical era, composers, instruments and themes throughout the exhibition. The exhibition was presented in chronological order, so that the sensors on the headphones allowed us to listen to the right music at the right time. There were interactive parts which we found very entertaining. For example, medieval paintings became active and the instruments in the paintings played, monks in church stained glass windows sang Gregorian chants. Franz Liszt was given a special room where the piano played his famous works by itself. But we’d also like to highlight the Dj mixing consoles, old radios and sound effects. During this exciting exhibition, we learned a lot of new and interesting information and even got closer to classical music.
After the permanent exhibition, we went to the Hangdóm hall, where we could lie on beanbags and watch a wonderful and exciting projection of Budapest’s famous buildings, but in a very unusual way. The visual effect was enhanced by the accompanying music. Afterwards, we took a short walk in the City Park, some of us even climbing to the highest point of the roof garden of the Ethnographic Museum. After lunch we headed to S10, where we were warmly welcomed by the students. After a little sightseeing, we went to the City Centre Theatre, where we were treated to a wonderful and funny performance, which we are still laughing about, called Tok-tok, or how do the dice roll? A group of unknown people, waiting in the anteroom of a world famous psychiatrist, each with their own problems, which they try to solve while waiting. We can say for everyone that it was an unforgettable and eventful day! Thank you!” Gréta Kállai and Lili Nóra Orosz from the Jászság 3 group
