The Lőrinc Barabás Quartet & Takuya Kuroda
We would like, even during this extraordinary situation, for the Müpa Budapest audience to still be able to encounter the world's most outstanding and thrilling artists each evening - this time in their own homes. It is precisely for this reason that we have decided to unlock our media library for everyone over the weeks to come and - each night at the familiar times - open Müpa Budapest's virtual concert hall and auditoriums by providing access to a single unforgettable performance from past years.
Ever since his days at the Hungarian Music Academy, Lőrinc Barabás has been a defining presence in Hungarian music. He has appeared at the Australian Noosa Jazz Festival with the Soulwhat group, won the Prize for Best Film Score at the Hungarian Film Week with The Uptown Felaz band and is a former member of Irie Maffia. Barabás was also the man behind the Random Szerda (Random Wednesday) improvisational concerts between 2005 and 2010, and again from 2016. He has played alongside esteemed artists such as Valerie June, Bonobo, Nicola Conte, Erik Truffaz, Parov Stelar and Nils Petter Molvær. In 2005, Barabás founded his own group, the Lőrinc Barabás Eklektric, releasing two albums (Ladal, 2007, and Trick, 2009). In 2015, he created the Lőrinc Barabás Quartet, with Zoltán Cséry on keyboards, Attila Herr on the bass guitar and Zsolt Nagy on drums. Beardance is their first album, featuring 11 songs resembling diary entries.
For this concert to showcase their latest album, a very special guest, Takuya Kuroda joined the group. The Japanese trumpet player, who also promoted his recently-released album, blends flashes of jazz, post-bop, neo-soul, hip-hop and electronica, and his joint performance with Lőrinc Barabás promises to be an incredibly exciting musical encounter.
This recording was made at a concert held at Müpa Budapest on 21 March 2018.
