Contemporary concert and public meeting series edited by Peter Eötvös.

In 2014 Peter Eötvös Foundation celebrated its 10th anniversary and opened a new chapter in introducing contemporary music. We invite composers who are rarely represented in Hungarian repertoires and we also aim to go beyond the possibilities of a traditional portrait concert. We began with the youngest generation so the audience could soon discover which common points characterize their music. Besides they all worked with Maestro Eötvös.

Since 2015 we invite well-known composers and musicians from all over the world for the mustMEET Composers series. The evening is usually hosted by music historian Gergely Fazekas, and accompanied by film footage or a small live concert with professional musicians. The events are FREE and held in the Library of the Budapest Music Center. Registration is always needed.

mustMEET Composers series events can be enjoyed online on the foundation's Youtube-channel.
