Those fabulous Hungarians

November 16, 2011 at 4:53 PM

Here is the fabulous Illenyi family playing an arrangement of Paganini Caprice No. 24. Ferenc, the first man that you see, is a violinist in the Houston Symphony. His sister Katica seems to be quite popular in Hungary. Check out her other videos.

Take a listen to some of the other Illenyi youtubes. Listen to Ferenc's cadenza to the Tchaikovsky concerto.
