“What I assert is this,—that a man ought to be in serious earnest about serious things, and not about trifles; and that the object really worthy of all serious and blessed effort is God, while man is contrived, as we said above, to be a plaything of God, and the best part of him is really just that; and thus I say that every man and woman ought to pass through life in accordance with this character, playing at the noblest of pastimes, being otherwise minded than they now are.”


Season of Conundrums – Danubia 25
In our festal season, we invite you to play: solve the source of the quotations included in the description of the concert (title, author) and also what links them to the specific concert. The game related to the concert titled 4 lasts from December 3 to 11, 2018. The interface for receiving the solutions will be open during this period and we will indicate it in advance. Though, you are allowed to think about it yet! 
Before the concert, at 5:45 PM, we will make an Introductory lecture related to the concert in the Great Hall of the Music Academy hosted by pianist and music teacher Gábor Eckhardt.
