András Párniczky founded his quartet in 2016 with the aim of performing his arrangements of Béla Bartók’s works in an improvisational setting. The bandleader and his colleagues, Péter Bede (wind instruments) and Péter Ajtai (bass), have performed in more than 300 concerts at venues such as the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Brussels Bravo Arts Festival, the Technopolis Jazz Festival in Athens and the Liszt Academy in Budapest. The quartet’s debut album, Bartók Electrified, was released in 2018 on BMC Records. This repertoire was performed in 2016 at MÜPA with guitarist Frank Möbus and tenor saxophonist Daniel Erdmann, and in 2019 the band toured with bassist Carlos Bica and drummer Dejan Terzic.

In 2023, the reborn band will build on this collaboration, with Ágoston Szabó-Sipos on drums. The result is a repertoire that reflects the words of János Gonda: “an autonomous European improvisational musical language that integrates elements of modern chamber jazz, contemporary and folk music”. Instead of the usual thematic pieces, the compositions move within a much freer framework, retaining the recognisable sound of the band and also creating an authentic sound free of the clichés of American jazz.
