The least important are not forbidden to dream of great things, and even modestly to aim at them, according to the measure of their abilities.

Guitarist Ferenc Snétberger, who burst onto the music scene in the late 1980s with Trio Stendhal, is a true European creative genius. Besides being a composer and soloist, he also regularly involves himself with matters close to his heart. He is associated not only with the unique Felsőörs camp, which teaches Roma youth about music, but also with the work In Memory of My People, for guitar and full orchestra, which is dedicated to the innocent Roma killed during the Porajmos Holocaust. This work has been performed in many countries, as well as at the New York headquarters of the UN. The Italy premiere in 2003 was conducted by András Keller, who gained fame as leader of his eponymous string quartet, since which time the two have collaborated professionally on several further occasions.

This time the Keller Quartet accompany Snétberger in concert. Snétberger’s guitar playing, which lies on the borderline of classical music and jazz, and the professionalism of the string quartet are a unified force in a performance that every serious music fan must be witness to.
