The most important class, however, for me and for hundreds of other Hungarian musicians, was the chamber-music class. From about the age of fourteen, and until graduation from the Academy, all instrumentalists except the heavy-brass players and percussionists had to participate in this course. Presiding over it for many years was the composer Leó Weiner, who thus exercised an enormous influence on three generations of Hungarian musicians.

Mihály Demeniv (accordion), Áron Tálas (piano)

Since his birth, Mihály Demeniv has lived together with the instrument because his parents were accordionists themselves. He won an international competition in Uzhhorod (Ungvár) at the age of just eight and has gone on to take podium places in Italy, Slovakia and Bosnia. “The accordion has a soul, I would liken the different styles to languages: the more a person knows of them, the better able he is to express himself,” says Demeniv, who won national fame in 2014 on the talent show Virtuózok. His repertoire includes Latin accordion music (Piazzola) as well as works by Bach and Liszt.

Áron Tálas is one of the most colourful and sought-after jazz musicians of Hungary’s younger generation. He has performed in partnership with Dave Liebman, Nils Petter- Molvær, Ed Neumeister, Kuba Stankiewicz, Gyula Babos, Kornél Fekete-Kovács, Veronika Harcsa, Kátya Tompos and Erika Miklósa. Their joint concert is an unmissable moment for music lovers interested in the border zone between classical and jazz.

We would like to inform our audience that this concert is cancelled due to the travel restrictions in force. Thank you for your understanding!
