Felix Lajko solo concert

Mercurial vionist Félix Lajkó is bringing his vivid mélange of classicalstyle, jazz, darkfolk, punkrock, sentimental metal, klezmer and Gypsy to the most prestigious concert halls. As passionate and fresh as ever, Icon Félix Lajkó has been perfroming his simply unique style of impulsive, capricious and utterly compelling music before live audiences for over 25 years.

The two extraordinary artists reinterpret contemporary music, and make it accessible in the process, providing not only psychologists but historians of music with a lot to ponder on. How can ideas, emotions and images possibly come to life in two people at the same time-and we talk about objec- tive, verifiable simultaneity-if these persons are somehow closely linked? Because what emerges by the end of their common music making is an aura woven from harmonies that touches the very heart of every member of the audience. Félix Lajkó and János Balázs is each an inimitable virtuoso of his instrument, and together they push the very limits of music. This is what makes their playing together so exciting and unpredictable.

Félix Lajkó’s record entitled INFINITY features Budafok Dohnányi Orchestra and the symphony named “Infinity” – which they created together. “Infinity” fulfills and multiplies musical dimensions. Félix had for a long time dreamt of working together with a large orchestra and in the spring of 2013 he began working with the Budafok Dohnányi Orchestra. Their projects together have culminated in this recording. The recording was released on Félix Lajkó’s 40th birthday in February
2014 at an event called the Félix Lajkó Marathon held at Budapest’s Palace of the Arts. Félix Lajkó is one of those musicians with an extraordinary ability to connect with the soul. His instrument acts a conduit between him and the outside world. No matter what challenge he takes on or who joins him on the stage, the result is always crystal clear: instinctive and visceral music straight from the soul, fed by some deep, unknown force. The Budafok Dohnányi Orchestra is one of Hungary’s leading professional orchestras. Thanks to their enthusiasm, youth, charismatic music and their conductor, Liszt Award winner Gábor Hollerung, the orchestra has quickly gained recognition and success both in Hungary and abroad.

„The essence of my music comes from the sensibility and variegation of my instrument. I do not play any new kind of music just walking my own path, improvise and compose music. I don’t make any differences between styles and streams in music so I play folk -, classical -, rock-, blues-, punk-, jazz music, and improvised tunes as well. If I should categorize my own musical type I would prefer dark-folk or semtimental metal”

“Not the countries, not even music genres can stop the talent, it cannot be reined by music sheets nor the conductor. Citizens of the Carpathian base. They live free, travel freely in reality and in music. The Romanian- born Alexander Balanescu and the Hungarian born Félix Lajkó from Vojvodina have been defining personalities not only of the national but also International musical life for years.
Their performance is based on folk music and improvisation with virtuoso violin play and elemental diction, they capture even the enthusiasts of lighter genres and classical music.”
(Violin and violin)

“You might ask, why take five superb string players, and than add an other. Because the result is simply thrilling and keeps you on the edge of your seat. There are beautiful moments of tranquillity and lyricism… It is super exciting, and I had a sense of the awe audiences might have felt see- ing Paganini in the 19th century. Yes-it was that exciting.” (Simon Broughton, Songlines Magazin)
