Richárd Szaniszló, whose principal instrument is the vibraphone, completed his studies in Szeged in 2000. Ever since he started playing he has been interested in contemporary music and jazz, and while still a student, he wrote compositions that attempt to fuse different trends of jazz and modern music.
He has appeared in concert with such legends of Hungarian jazz as Róbert Szakcsi Lakatos, Gyula Csepregi, Imre Kőszegi and Csaba Deseő, and has played with world stars like vibraphonist David Friedman, Michael “Patches” Stewart, Michał Urbaniak and Erik Truffaz.
On the Spring Festival’s Percussion Day, he will be partnered by Makoto Ozone, the Grammy award winning Japanese jazz pianist and composer, who over the years has collaborated with Chick Corea, Paquito D’Rivera, Anna Maria Jopek and Branford Marsalis, among others. Hungarian audiences may well be familiar with, as he has already played in Budapest, with Gary Burton.
This concert of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Müpa Budapest.
