The major concerts at this three-day celebration of jazz will again entice the audience with a colourful set of offerings, since this will be the crème de la crème of Hungarian jazz performing, from the youngest generation to musicians with decades of experience. Taking the stage of the Festival Theatre on the first day will be the Áron Tálas Trio. Led by the eponymous pianist, drummer and composer whose reputation belies his young age, they'll be introducing the material from their first album, recently issued in Japan, to what will no doubt be an even larger audience. The second day will bring to the stage, under the artistic leadership of Attila László, a group of five of our country's superb jazz guitarists assembled to pay tribute to the memory of Hungarian guitar legend Attila Zoller, who died in 1998. The closing-day concert includes a distinctive figure in the Hungarian jazz scene: saxophonist and composer Kristóf Bacsó and his most important ensemble Triad, supplemented on this occasion by New York-based Israeli guitarist Gilad Hekselmann.
Panni Kalmár is a talent with a unique voice from the new generation of singers. He mixes elements of Portuguese fado, Brazilian bossa nova and American swing into his live performances, where he sings of love and longing. The trio also features Mátyás Tóth on guitar, who teaches in the Snétberger Music Talent Centre alongside his concert performances. After finishing his studies at the Hungarian Music Academy, the group's saxophonist, Dániel Mester, completed a Masters in Composing for Film at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and continues to work in this area today.
