The Balassi Institute of culture will launch a new annual programme in Bucharest featuring Hungarian Jazz with the first event organised between October 16 and 19, the director of the institute’s Bucharest branch said.
The programme dubbed Bucharest Hungarian Jazz Days will present contemporary Hungarian jazz to professionals and the public, András László Kósa told MTI. The programme will open with a concert by the Boros Zoltán Trió.
The second day will feature the Bohém Ragtime Jazz Band with a repertoire of American music in the 1910s and 1930s. The band will also evoke the times of prospering Budapest before the two wars.
The closing event will be a joint concert by pianist and composer Károly Binder and multiinstrumentalist and composer Mihály Borbély.
