Title: Dvadsať rokov existencie Maďarskej spoločnosti priateľov hudby na Slovensku
Author: Agáta Csehiová

Abstract: The Hungarian Friends of Music Society in Slovakia was founded on December 7, 1990 in Bratislava as part of Csemadok. Main tasks of the society include the organization of seminars, symposia and conferences, co-organization of nationwide music festivals and cultural events, cooperation with domestic and foreign institutions, associations and personalities. The aim and mission of the society is to develop the music culture and choral movement in Slovakia and to spread the creation and heritage of those significant, mostly Hungarian music exponents whose life and creation were and/or are to a certain extent connected with certain towns or regions in Slovakia. On the basis of this plan various events began to arise: Piano Competition of Pál Kadosa in Levice (nine years during the period 1993–2009), festival Musical Encounter with Béla Bartók (Komárno 1991, Šahy 1994, 2001, Lučenec 1997, Rimavská Sobota 2006) and a conference with a concert Hommage à Bartók in Bratislava (2006). After its foundation the Hungarian Society of Music Friends in Slovakia started to collaborate on the development and spreading of choral movement in Slovakia. In 1992 it became the main organizer of the nationwide festival of Hungarian children’s and youths’ choirs in Slovakia The Sounding Song in Nové Zámky and since 1992 it has cooperated on a nationwide festival of singing choirs of adults in Slovakia Kodály’s Days in Galanta.
In two decades of its existence the Hungarian Friends of Music Society in Slovakia has taken active part in cultural and music life in Slovakia. During the period 1990–2010 it organized 28 nationwide events as well as events with international participation. It has significantly influenced the cultural and music life in Slovakia by its activities, various artistic and pedagogic events. It offers the participants the space for an active presentation at home as well as abroad and at the same time it mediates meetings with important domestic and foreign music personalities. Its two-decades-long existence has been valuable and successful, therefore it ranges among important music societies at home as well as abroad.
