Ágnes Herczku & Friends in the Liszt Academy

The art of Ágnes Herczku is constantly tracked and she most recently received the prestigious Liszt Ferenc Prize, in 2016. The pioneering undertaking she launched in 2007 continues: this is when her album Bartók Béla: Hungarian Folk Songs for Voice and Piano was released. Now Herczku and her friends assist in bringing out this sharp contour not only through the intonation of folk singing but also with a new idea: the arrangement for cimbalom of works originally written for piano.
