Swing a la Django
Swing a la Django is an innovative six-membered band, which has showed its talents many times in Hungary and abroad as well. They have created a special style-mix in their music with the harmony of authentic Hungarian music, French chansons, world manouche swing, tango and jazz. At their concerts they go back to the roots, their music is inspired by Django Reinhardt, the greatest Belgian-born gypsy-jazz guitarist, and they try to follow the footsteps of Reinhardt to evoke the atmosphere of the 30s-40s. In this concert the band will provide a unique performance entitled "From Bach to Django" that is a special mixture of the baroque and the swing music.

Budapest Saxophone Quartet
After more than 1000 concerts around the world, the now 19-year-old Budapest Saxophone Quartet is still going strong with the initial line-up of four friends who established the quartet in the Liszt Academy Budapest and then graduated together as a chamber group in CNSMDP Paris, France. The BSQ performed in more than 22 countries like USA, Canada, Japan, South-Korea, Mauritius, Qatar, Israel, Russia and all over Europe as well. One of their specialities is to invite guest soloists, mainly singers but also piano, trumpet, saxophone, harpsichord, organ, oboe and flute players.
