Free ranging and captivating improvisations between Hungarian violist Szilard Mezei and cellist Albert Markos, a remarkable duo of the string's potential.

Violinist, violist, double bass player and composer player Szilard Mezei was born in Serbia as a member of the Hungarian minority in the multiethnic region of Vojvodina. He completed his violin studies in Senta and Subotica and studied composition for four years at the University of Arts in Beograd under prof. Zoran Eric. He has played and composed in various formations from duo to nonet, and has held many concerts. His orchestra plays contemporary improvised music, mostly performing his own compositions. As a composer, Mezei is interested in exploring the relationship between improvisation and composition (similarly to Witold Lutoslawski's aleatoric and Anthony Braxton's creative music methods), incorporating elements of jazz and authentic folk music as well. As a young musician he followed the path of B.Bartók and Gy.Szabados. Mezei is also very actively involved in composing scenic music and plays authentic Hungarian folk music on genuine folk instruments (koboz and oud).

Cellist Albert Markos studied classical music at the Music Secondary School and the Music Academy. Between 1988 and 1992 he worked in different orchestras in Transylvania (The Philharmonic Orchestra of Marosvásárhely, The Symphonic Orchestra of Kolozsvár and the Concordia Chamber Orchestra.) In 1992 he broke with classical music, and since then has set new goals for his work as a performer and composer, as well as developing a sensitivity towards new media. Since 1993 he have been living in Hungary, pursuing a career as composer for theatre film and dance productions.
