Those Hungarians: More Katica

December 1, 2007 09:19

If all the Hungarian violinists who were worthy of careers actually had them how many other violinists would have careers?

My wife is a member of the Houston Symphony Chorus. They toured in Europe last summer and one of the concerts was at the Ferenc Liszt Academy with the Budapest Concert Orchestra. . The first half of the program was virtuoso show pieces by a local violinist, Ferenc Szecsődi. I have never heard of him. She has a souvenir CD that is quite exciting.

So here is one of my favorite Hungarians, Katica Illenyi playing Monti's Csardas, just posted on Youtube (watch and listen to the very end):

Here she is playing with her younger brother Csaba(Four Brothers)

Here she is singing Amazing Grace
