Journey into the World of Hungaricums – this is the title of the concert in which the focus is on Gypsy music. Lajos Sárközy takes the lead role, he is spiritus rector and first violinist of the recital. He has been a permanent feature in concert life since his teens as a seventh-generation descendant of his musician family: he is equally comfortable on the jazz, classical and Gypsy music scene both in Hungary and abroad. The young Junior Prima Prize-winning artist has triumphed at first violinist and jazz violinist competitions. This time, in the company of Gypsy Band he offers the audience a programme that showcases the lasting values of the musical tradition in Hungary in exactly the same way as classical and contemporary compositions at the three previous Hungarian Gems events.
