I sing in a church choir called Lutheránia. We sing most of the time J. S. Bach’s music. We sing his cantatas, passions and oratorios as part of the liturgical ceremony, as it was in Bach’s time. The congregation gets the Hungarian translation of the cantata’s text, and usually the preacher talks about the content of the cantata. This time we sang BWV 156.
We had a concert again with Árpád Kató in a nice modern library. One of my colleagues was there who lent me his guitar (Ramirez C650), I play on his instrument 🙂
My flute teacher colleague and I decided to make some recordings for our students and friends as a Christmas present. You can find some Christmas songs and classical pieces for flute and guitar here. The Esterházy piece was my transcription from string orchestra and soprano voice. I hope you’ll like it 🙂 Merry Christmas!
When I was in elementary school, I got a present for my good results, my teachers brought me to a concert. It was held in a beutyful villa of a musician family. When we got there, we saw that candels were lit along the way to the house, and the concert was nice, the members of the family played different instruments. It was a memorable experience for me. Now I had the opportunity to play a concert there with Árpád Kató. It was very special to me, and I’m happy that some of my students came to the concert.
I live in the XXII. District of Budapest since 1992. I try to cooperate with people, who organise cultural events for the local communities, so I often have the opportunity to play in the neighbourhood. In the beginning of October we celebrate the Day of Music. This year I could play after a talented, young pianist and composer, András Emszt. Here’s a part of our performance:
After this concert there was an interesting exhibition from the pictures of the graphic artist István Kádas.
Finally, I got my teacher’s diploma 🙂
In June there was an exhibition in Budafok (Budapest) in a nice, old wine cellar, where I could play for the local people.
