Jazz Meets Classic, en collaboration avec la Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation (English below)

Roby Lakatos Ensemble
Première partie: Addison Frei

Ayant attiré l'attention de Yehudi Menuhin dans un café à Bruxelles dans les années 1990, Roby Lakatos est décrit par le Daily Telegraph comme "le joueur de violon le plus rapide du monde". Descendant direct de János Bihari (1764-1827), qui inspira Liszt et Brahms, Lakatos est tout aussi impressionnant quand il évolue dans l’univers de la musique classique que dans le monde du jazz ou bien dans le répertoire populaire hongrois.

Avant la performance de l'Ensemble de Roby Lakatos nous accueillons Addison Frei, gagnant du Concours de Piano du dernier Montreux Jazz Festival, qui improvisera un programme en hommage à la collaboration entre Menuhin et Grappelli.

Jazz Meets Classic, in collaboration with the Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation

Roby Lakatos Ensemble
Support: Addison Frei

Having attracted Yehudi Menuhin’s attention in a café in Brussels in the ‘90s Roby Lakatos is lauded as “the fastest-fingered fiddler in the world” (The Daily Telegraph). A direct descendent of János Bihari (1764-1827), the most celebrated Gypsy band leader of the early 19th century who directly inspired the Gypsy music of Liszt and later Brahms in his Hungarian Dances, Lakatos is equally impressive performing classical music as he is playing jazz and in his own Hungarian folk idiom.

Prior to the Roby Lakatos Ensemble’s performance we welcome Addison Frei, the winner of the Montreux Jazz Piano Competition 2017, to perform a short programme including an homage to the iconic collaboration between Menuhin and Grappelli.
