Kodály, a passionate hiker, was touring the Mátra mountains for more than sixty years.
The Grandhotel at Galyatető was the base for his tours: the excursions started and then ended there. The piano he played and the pictures of his memories at the Mátra are preserved in the Kodály Memorial Hall of the hotel where Balázs Fülei has launched a series of concerts this April. The closing concert of the series – one of the last events of the Kodály Memorial Year commemorating the 135th anniversary of the composer’s birth and the 50th anniversary of his death - will be held on December 2nd.
