Wednesday – 2 November – 20:00 – Jazz&Blues Club

Bende Zsolt Quartet (HUN)


Bende Zsolt – guitar

Balázs Elemér – drums

Balázs József – piano

Orbán György – bass

The band’s repertoire features both original compositions as well as standards. Their sound is close to hard bop, in a pure, both modern and traditionalist form.


Thursday – 3 November –  21:00 Jazz & Blues Club

Gentry Sultan (HUN)


Horváth László – trumpet, magic box

Vereb Szabolcs – saxophone, electronics

Hevesi Nándor – doublebass, keyboard

Kovács Gergely – drums

The quartet’s music represents – both through its content and its sound – a fusion between their romantic and unmistakable style of their own past with the traditions of free jazz, orientalism and the elementariness of contemporary music, always in flux. Their avant-gardist music is open to ambient, punk, folk, Schrammelmusik and noise. Obeying their own internal principles, Gentry Sultan continues to play its music for Eternity.


Friday – 4 November – 21:30

David Yengibarian Trio (HUN)


David Yengibarian – accordion

Bata István – bass

Badics Márk – drums

Our music has travelled a long and rocky, war-torn, happy-miserable and tragic road leading through holocaust, suffering and times of joy. Folk music perfectly mirrors the fate of a people. I’ve never had the intention of playing American music; I believe that the music of my people is sufficiently adequate for being approached with the exactingness particular to jazz. I also believe that in general, each genuine musician strives to feature their own culture at the highest level – which doesn’t mean that they can’t play a well-known American standard from time to time. (David Yengibarian)


Saturday – 5 November – 18:00

Bartók and the Jazz


At this concert, organised in honour of the Bartók year, the three artists have arranged Bartók’s music for jazz and try to enrich it using the improvisational technique specific to this genre.

Teodora Enache (ROM)

She is one of the most important representatives of Romanian jazz, the first artist from Romania who has had the innovative courage to bring the doina into the programme of jazz recitals, thus becoming a source of inspiration for the Romanian ethno-jazz current.

Fejes Krisztina (HUN)

A graduate of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest, she has received several international awards. In 2011 she was awarded the Fischer Annie Scholarship, and in 2012 she received the ARTISJUS prize.

Káel Norbert (HUN)

After having graduated from the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest, he was admitted to the Berklee College of Music in Boston with the highest scholarship. He is equally versed in classical music and the world of jazz.
