Kodály's method of teaching music is brilliant …. All good music-making begins with the voice.

Söndörgő & Kelemen Quartet

Bartók–Balkán Revisited

Söndörgő: Áron Eredics, Benjamin Eredics, Dávid Eredics, Salamon Eredics, Ábel Dénes
Kelemen Quartet: Barnabás Kelemen (violin), Jonian Ilias Kadesha (violin), Katalin Kokas (viola), Vashti Mimosa Hunter (cello)

At their joint concert, Söndörgő, who specialize in South Slavic melodies and combine the archaic quality of traditional tunes with the energy of rock music, and the Kelemen Quartet, who are hailed in the international press as the most galvanizing string quartet of recent times, explore the heritage of Bartók.

On his 1912 collection trip to the Banat, Béla Bartók recorded numerous Romanian, Serbian and Bulgarian folk melodies. The programme of what promises to be a captivating night includes Söndörgő songs inspired by melodies Bartók collected in Temesmonostor and Sárafalva, original compositions of his such as String Quartet No. 5, and the tambura orchestra arrangements of popular works like Allegro barbaro. One of the highlights will be a taster of Söndörgő’s next album, Gyezz, to be released in the summer of 2024, and performed now, of course, with the Kelemen Quartet.
