Ádám Cser
The range from happiness to euphoria and from pleasure to ecstasy may be a wide one, but there in the middle, smiling serenely and reassuringly, is undoubtedly the most popular and perhaps also the most coveted basic emotion, joy. There are at least as many varieties of people who experience the emotion as there are types of joy, which means the same music does not necessarily provoke the same feeling of joy for everyone. We are playing it safe: with the diverse musical selection of MÜPA, everyone is sure to find some melodies to suit them.

It is essential to know and dare to feel joy. In fact, amidst the monotonous repetition of everyday life, it is perhaps the most difficult task of all to uncover this endlessly positive emotion. It is worth reflecting for a moment on what brings us joy in the present day, what last brought a spontaneous smile to your face. When you last felt energies arising within you that could help you turn the whole world around. Your body almost records those moments when it feelsjoy, urging its 'owner' to experience that pleasant, positive and spine-tingling feeling again and again. For many of us, culture itself is a source of joy: the importance of a good book, a great exhibition or a theatrical performance should not be underestimated when it comes to feeling joy. Of course, this concert also hopes to belong to that list of cultural events. It will feature lesser and more well-known melodies from numerous popular composers, while the opera singer Szilveszter Szélpál will use his explanations to bring context to the immortal sounds of joy.
