Daniel Szasz

A versatile musician, interested in performing both standard and less familiar repertoire, Mr. Szasz has been consistently praised for his “expressive, rich and warm sound” as well as for his “strong, confident, and assertive playing.”  His performances have been described as “breathtaking” and “exquisite” and have generated great enthusiasm among his audiences and in the press.

Laci Rácz is one of Hungary’s most renowned cimbalom artists.  A descendant of a very old famous family of musicians, he is an eighth generation of the legendary Rácz family.  Since 2000 he is a member of the large Roby Lakatos Ensemble in Bruxelles.   Later, he returned to Budapest and as of 2010, lives in Vienna, and plays in several bands in the Classics , jazz and folk style.
