When Spring

Mezei Solo, Szilard : When Spring (Not Two Records)
Label: Not Two Records    
Released in: Yugoslavia    

Solo viola and double bass compositions from Szilárd Mezei, a Voivodina Hungarian composer, violinist, viola player, and double bass player, and the front man of his band. He studied music (violin) in Subotica and then composition in Belgrade, where he was a pupil of Zoran Erić. His music is based mainly on improvisation, with strong ties to Hungarian folk music, jazz and various schools of contemporary music (Bartók, Lutoslawski, Ligeti, Szabados, Braxton). His work includes a number of chamber music compositions as well as music for the stage (e.g. the pieces he wrote as a member of the Josef Nadj troupe in France). As a lead musician, he plays mostly in a trio, a quintet or in a large orchestra. He often participates in improvised music formations. He has played with Matthias Schubert, Michael Hornstein, Tim Hodgkinson, Jens Balder, and Ákos Szlevényi, among others. He is member of the band MAKUZ, which is led by György Szabados, with whom he also plays in a duo. He is an active organiser of workshops for improvised music.
