Roby Lakatos

  • Capitole

Roby Lakatos is a face familiar to the Ghent OdeGand audience. In 2007 he gave an absolutely stellar performance which earned him the deserved nickname ‘King of De Klezmer’. Lakatos, who feels equally at home in the classical, jazz and Hungarian repertoires, is one of the few musicians who transcends the boundaries of his art. He is simultaneously the prince of the violin, a classical virtuoso, a jazz improviser, a composer and arranger, and a survivor of the 19th century. A musical Homo Universalis. Passionate, powerful, elegant, with panache and finesse. This concert promises to be a true spectacle.
