The Hungarian Strayer, Glass Tiger 3, The Bridge Man, Thorn Castle, What Ever Happened to Timi? - everyone has surely seen at least one of these films. Their ‘common denominator' is that they all featured István Hirtlin, one of the key figures in Hungarian acting over the past three decades.In the Crazy About Jazz series, the actress and jazz singer Erika Náray chats with guest artists who share her passion for one of the dominant styles of popular music over the past 120 years: jazz. Mari Jászai Award-winner and Artist of Merit István Hirtling rarely speaks about subjects outside of his work, which is one reason this evening will be so special. We'll get to find out which instrument is closest to his heart - the bass guitar, saxophone or drums? - and which soloists or composers he likes to listen to (or perhaps play). His favourite music will also be played live by the band led by the hostess for the evening and Tamás Berdisz.
As is customary at these free-flowing dinner-table discussions, the conversationalists will also branch off into other subjects; for example, how an often-employed actor can live in model familial harmony as a father of two children and what it's like working in Székesfehérvár after spending time at the theatres of Budapest.
Audience members will be able to take their seats in the Bohém Restaurant on a first-come, first-served basis from 6 pm, and can enjoy dinner before and after the concert.
