Please allow me that, apart from my regrettable ignorance of the Hungarian language, I remain Magyar in my heart and soul from birth to the grave. As a consequence, I earnestly wish to further the progress of Hungarian music.

Concerto Armonico Budapest (concertmaster: Gábor Homoki, artistic director: Miklós Spányi)

There is no knowing what it was like being the son of Johann Sebastian Bach and working in the same profession as his legendary father. Whatever the case, we can say that Carl Philip Emmanuel Bach must have made his father proud, becoming the most important German composer of the second half of the 18th century, with more than 1000 works to his name in a career spanning 60 years. There are few more proficient performers of the composer’s works than Miklós Spányi and Concerto Armonico. It is sufficient to mention that, with the assistance of Swedish BIS Records, they recorded all C. P. E. Bach’s keyboard concertos, in the process winning themselves a Hungarian Gramofon Prize. Miklós Spányi is the founding artistic director of the early music ensemble, which was established in 1983 from students of the Liszt Academy. Current members of the group are freshly graduated Liszt Academy students, led by Gábor Homoki, better known as a member of the Kelemen Quartet. Alongside Miklós Spányi, flautist János Bálint makes an appearance as soloist.
