CREMONAI HEGEDŰK, MISKOLCI ZENÉSZEK / 2019 / HUNGARY / 79 min
László Kerényi returns to CineFest once again. His newest film is about Cremona and Miskolc’s musical connection, and a special guest performance. Egressy- Erkel Music School’s Youth Symphonic Orchestra (conductor: Péter Pál Gergely) was invited to perform in Italy, Cremona in 2017. Cremona is the homeland of very famous violin makers; currently 160 of them are working there trying to follow in Stradivari’s tracks. Miskolc’s Young musicians were contacted by Cremona-based Hungarian violin maker, István Kónya, who is known by locals as Stefano Conia. The 2017 concert’s specialty was that the orchestra’s stringed instruments (cellos and violins) were constructed by Cremona’s master violin makers.
