  • Szilárd Mezei and his “Wind Quartet” return with yet another batch of their subtle mix of contemporary chamber music, European folk-jazz and improvisation
  • Throughout the seven pieces on Innen, Mezei's viola is both supported and challenged by Bogdan Rankovic's reeds, Branislav Aksin's trombone and Kornél Papista's tuba, all four musicians of this small orchestra servicing the composer’s ideas as well as entering into improvisational exchanges, and taking the music to impressive heights of creativity, consistency and virtuosity
  • Serbian violaist Szilárd Mezei has gained a reputation as a composer/musician that rarely fits into ordinary definitions and conventions
  • Throughout his career, he has systematically blurred the boundaries between modern chamber contemporary music, European folk-based themes and jazz and free improvisation
