Duo with Vera Jónás

Friday, 3rd September. 2010. @ Kultúrfürdő

When I played with Vera for the first time we couldn’t stop till 6 in the morning. It was in Amsterdam. Then we met in London where she lives, and played again.. Finally we met in Budapest and we decided to play a concert at Kultúrfürdő. A very special singer, I’m looking forward to our first concert together.

Without Prescription

by Erno Zoltan Rubik & Gabor Csongradi

12th August, 2010. 8.00 p.m. @ Kultúrfürdő

One evening of music therapy, prescription is not needed. Risks and side effects are guaranteed. Dropped, threw up notes, familiar melodies from here and there, not familiar melodies from here and there. Less restriction and more improvization on a guitar, a piano, and who knows what else..

Erno Zoltan Rubik – piano, who knows
Gabor Csongradi – guitar, what else

Cva Graduation Festival

We play on Thursday at 20h on the Graduation Festival of Cva, next to all the graduating master students. It’s gonna be a colorful evening with lots of nice bands, just as on Friday at 20h the second evening. Come and enjoy! I play with Benedek Kiss on Friday as well.

New recordings!

New recordings about three tunes of mine are available on the Music page. “Study” is a new one I made for my research, Da Vinci is a new version of one from before. With Covered Eyes is a really old one that I decided to ‘renovate’ after some years that I didn’t play it.
