...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Bille Gergő Quintet & Kornél Fekete-Kovács Presented by Liszt Academy

Composer's Evening

Works by Gergő Bille and Kornél Fekete-Kovács 

Gergő Bille (trumpet, flugelhorn), Gábor Lukács (saxophone), Bence Bécsy (guitar), Marci Miskolczi (double bass), Ágoston Szabó Sipos (drums)
Featuring: Konél Fekete-Kovács (trumpet)

Trumpet and flugelhorn player Gergő Bille formed his group in the Liszt Academy Jazz Department, since when they have won first prizes at the Jazz Showcase and Get Closer competitions. The quintet’s repertoire features exclusively their own compositions bearing influences of modern, American jazz as well as various trends in global music such as funk, hip-hop, Latin beats or drum ’n’ bass. All five musicians play an equal part in shaping their own sound; their music runs from mainstream jazz to elusive avant-garde. Their concert (a must-see for fans of modern jazz) is joined by guest artist Kornél Fekete Kovács, leader of Modern Art Orchestra, legendary instrumentalist, composer and last but not least, brilliant trumpet player.
