“… I think I speak for many others when I suggest that he should be invited again – we would all enrich our lives, if we get to know as many sides of this outstandingly talented musician and composer as possible.”

Balázs Szabó, musicologist

…His piece, Tre Hymni was a beautiful mixture of tradition and invention; it can be characterised by clean modesty and parts composed with best taste. Just when we were amazed by the mature way of handling the piano, we were distracted by a beautiful vocal or cello melody, while a perfectly portioned flute melody formed a counter-piece…

Márk Aszódi,

“… the sensitively composed piano movements are the diverse utterances of an independent composer without tinges of any reminiscence.”

Kristóf Csengery, Life and Literature

“… and indeed, the world of music is familiar with him as an immaculately prepared composer who feels at home in a number of genres and has an excitingly unique style.”

Balázs Szabó,

slide 6-en

“… the artist played all these extremely complex compositions by heart without a single mistake or musical error, with highly colourful registration, and with a high level of focus embracing all details, while the style of the performance was elegantly cool and unbelievably self-confident.”

Balázs Szabó,

Members of the STUDIO 5 composers group are linked not primarily by some commonly avowed aesthetic but rather the conviction that new music should not merely count on the attention of a small initiated group. The amount of feedback they received following their recent concerts staged in St Stephen’s Basilica and the Solti Chamber Hall of the Liszt Academy suggest that they are on the right track. The vast majority of works in the Here and Now season ticket series have enjoyed rapturous receptions on all fronts: from the general public, from professional critics, and from those performance artists undertaking the compositions. For instance, Bence Kutrik’s work Rituale was voted one of the works most recommended to play on European radio stations at the International Rostrum of Composers in 2018.
