Jazz + Az • VeszprémFest 2021

Place: História Garden

Jazz+Az is a short-lived but highly successful Hungarian pop group. It was established by Péter Geszti and László Dés in 1997, when they wrote songs for the film entitled “A miniszter félrelép” (Out of Order) and decided to make a musical involving the new band. The joint authors asked three exceptional singers, Orsi Kozma, Eszter Váczi and Dóri Behumi to join the production.

They released two albums and one remix album altogether. The first was released in 1998 under the title “Kalózok” (Pirates), collecting the music of a film with a similar title. The debut was a great success for the band and led to enormous popularity. Their next album, “Egynek jó” (It will do) – in which “funky” appeared as a more dominant element compared to the first album – was released in 1999 followed by “Ez meg mi” (What’s this? – Remix album) in 2000.

Releasing three albums and with numerous hits becoming public favourites, all the band’s albums achieved platinum status, and they also received the “Arany Zsiráf” (Golden Giraffe) award in 2000. They announced their break-up in the same year, at the peak of this success. Their career closed with a farewell concert in the Kisstadion.

On the 20th anniversary of this sold-out farewell concert, Geszti, Dés and the girls decided to get on stage at the Papp László Budapest Sportaréna in January 2020 to perform the best songs of their career, with resounding success in front of the crowded auditorium.

Their next performance will be on VeszprémFest, where you can enjoy the hits again with the distinctive style of the lyrics written by Péter Geszti.

Date: 17TH AUGUST 2021 18:30TUESDAY
Place: Jesuit Churchyard

It was three years ago that Erika Miklósa and János Balázs appeared together in front of the audience seeking a common voice belonging to both of their respective musical areas: opera and piano literature. These two worlds and the two performers found each other in a very natural manner, as both opera and piano art were at their zeniths in the romantic era and were revived in the last century. Both artists want the audience to feel the musical freedom and the joy that the audiences of Mozart, Verdi and Liszt, and even György Czifra, were able to experience. The coloratura soprano singer – who last year was elected to the Immortals’ Society – and her Kossuth award-winning pianist partner compile their programme from arias, popular songs and virtuosic arrangements without genre constraints.

János Balázs, József Lendvay and Béla Szakcsi Lakatos

Ferenc Liszt had already been a concert player for more than ten years when he first heard Niccolò Paganini play in Paris in 1832, and this experience reshaped his thoughts on music. “What a man, what a violin, what an artist! Heavens! What sufferings, what misery, what tortures in those four strings!”, he wrote in a letter. In the joint Paganini+ soirée of Cziffra Festival and VeszprémFest, János Balázs plays Liszt etudes, Béla Szakcsi Lakatos improvises and József Lendvay gives a virtuosic performance of the original compositions of Paganini. The speciality of this programme is that – in a very unconventional manner – it presents the innovation of Paganini’s oeuvre over several centuries: the audience of the Memorial Year can listen to his masterpieces in their original version, in a Liszt-arrangement and in a jazz arrangement.

Place: Jesuit Churchyard

There is a small spot in a dark alley that no one is aware of, but it is known to all. Life starts here when the sun sets, and it closes when the world itself comes to an end. So many songs – a few snapshots of the customers addicted to rapture: young lovers and old bohemians, naive dreamers and sensual criminals, artists and cemented regulars. Our magical descent is guided by Kátya Tompos, the actress with a thousand faces, and János Balázs, Kossuth award-winning pianist, who are comfortable in all genres, whether it be chansons or classical music.
