Artistic activities:

Following his studies, he became a freelance performer, primarily playing solo and chamber pieces. He worked together with well-known composers and fellow instrumentalists including József Sári, György Kurtág, László Sáry, Barnabás Dukay, Ádám Kondor, Francois-Bernard Mache, Pierre Boulez, György Lakatos, Csaba Klenyán, Zoltán Kocsis to name a few. As the result of his collaboration with László Sáry, he started using and teaching Sáry’s method, the so called “Creative Music Activities”.

He believes in the unity of music, always searching for connections between different musical styles. He played J. S. Bach’s Partitas for Solo Violin on Clarinet.

As a versatile musician, he not only plays solos and teaches, but also conducts ensembles and chamber orchestras. He is the leader of the Metrum Ensemble, who perform regularly in Hungary. In collaboration with Maladype Theater they performed Sáry’s chamber opera “Great Sound in the Rush” at various festivals in Europe and in Hungary.
