Széchenyi István University is fully prepared to welcome international students and provides them not only with high-quality education but also with attractive living conditions, said Miklós Lengyel, Deputy State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, during his visit to the institution, which was occasioned by the anniversary of the Stipendium Hungaricum higher education scholarship programme next year.
The presenter of this year’s last alumni webinar was Gergely Fazekas, who is a musicologist and an associate professor at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music. He held a fantastic and deeply engaging presentation, where participants could learn a lot about the traditions as well as the current trends of Hungarian music from the early Middle Ages to the contemporaries, including world-famous composers such as Béla Bartók, Zoltán Kodály, György Ligeti or György Kurtág. We asked him about his motivation for being a musicologist and a teacher as well as about the peculiarities of Hungarian music.
