Péter Kiss - piano UMZE Chamber Ensemble Conducted by Gergely Vajda   On the first concert of the present season of UMZE, Gergely Vajda aims to present works of two expatriate Hungarian composers. Both of them started their career as soloists: Boston-based composer and conductor Bálint Karosi achieves outstanding success as organist even up to recent times, while András Hamary, starting as a multi-award-winner pianist, is since 1986 professor for piano and chamber music at the Würzburg Hochschule für Musik. Their compositions are paired with two already classical 20th century compositions.
