Today, the name of László Kelemen, who was born in Ditró in Székely Land, Romania, is perhaps most often associated with his public activities in the area of culture. He has been director of the Hungarian Heritage House for nearly 20 years, which through its network spanning the entire Carpathian Basin has become a major source of support for the amateur dance house movement. Fewer people know that he graduated from the composer department of the Cluj-Napoca College of Music in the mid-1980s, and then travelled on several continents as a folk musician and member of the Ökrös Band. The concert reflects this period from several decades earlier because there are not only traditional folk music compilations but a few of his own compositions, among them the Solo Sonata for violin performed by Ádám Banda, and the choral work Song for Kolozsvár Boys as interpreted by the Saint Ephraim Mixed Choir conducted by Tamás Bubnó on the programme. The procession of young folk musicians on the podium represents the continuity spanning generations of the dance house movement, evoking memories of the homeland and Kelemen’s most decisive musical experiences from Gyergyó to Kalotaszeg.
