Savannah Music Festival: Roby Lakatos Ensemble

Airs Thursday, November 15 at 8:00 p.m. Hungarian fiddle playing is known the world over for its passion, romance and virtuosity. To most non-Hungarians, the music is synonymous with the campfire, the open road and the Gypsies. But is Hungarian fiddle music actually Gypsy music? Within the country you will find considerable resentment towards this stereotype, and while there is much appreciation of the skill of Gypsy fiddlers, it is considered to be Hungarian music, not Gypsy music. On this program we listen to violinist Roby Lakatos, who is not only a scorching virtuoso, but a musician of extraordinary versatility. This recording was captured during the opening weekend of the 2010 Savannah Music Festival at the Lucas Theatre for the Arts.
