The Hungarian production won a Silver Jupiter Award at the 36th International Fireworks Competition in Montreal, ahead of the Canadian, Italian and Croatian teams, among others.
"It was beautiful! There were a lot of special effects of the best quality and the music was perfect. (…) I can only congratulate you on the wonderful show, all my appreciation!” (Slavic Marcell)
“I live in Montreal. Today, August 7, we found out that (...) the second place was won by Magyar NUVU Kft. The next day, the whole town spoke highly of the Hungarian fireworks and the accompanying music. My kindergarten grandchildren proudly said in kindergarten that they are indeed Hungarian, even if their parents were born here." (Peter Simon)
- this is what those who were lucky enough to watch live on the spot wrote about the Hungarian fireworks.
6 countries took part in l'International des Feux Loto-Québec, also known as the Monteral Fireworks Festival, held every year: Mexico, Hungary, Canada, Italy, Croatia and England.
The 32-minute Hungarian program offered a majestic spectacle. Many people said how uplifting it was to listen to the song "Spring Wind Blows Wind" over the St. Lawrence River and how proud they were of the show.
The show presented how Hungarian composers influenced the world's musical culture through folk songs, through the works of Kodály and Liszt, to today's Hungarian and Canadian pop music.
The winner was the English Pyrotex Fireworx, the silver went to the Hungarian Nuvu Kft., and the bronze medal went to the Canadian Feux d'artifice Orion team.
