“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.

“This is probably the best string world music production of our days.”

“Album of Félix Lajkó reached the prominent 5th place on the WMCE’s 2013 list.”

“Genres are not important to me, music is the essence”

“Another brilliant creature of a genius mind: on his new album Field Félix Lajkó finally recorded his legendary zither performance in studio quality.” “Put the cd in push the play button and in three seconds you will be whirled and raised by a hurricane of sounds.”

“Surely Félix got into every possible zigzag with his previous eleven album, it could have been the end – according to oriental terminology reached the gate of nothing, or in western culture the oeuvre became complete.”

“Such a rustic, naive power exists in this music that enchants the audience in no time.”
