Performing art - Bokros ensemble
In around 1995/96, in addition to the sound of the hurdy-gurdy orchestra,
I was becoming more and more intrigued by the possibilities of the hurdy-gurdy as a solo instrument.
I was looking for a formation in which my instrument can assume the prime part. It is this idea which
led to the birth of the Bokros Ensemble, the country’s best bourdon group, where besides the hurdy-gurdy
also stringed and wind instruments as well as singing can be heard. The Bokros Ensemble is – as one of
our publishers put it – a real „star orchestra”.
It is set up of the following members: György Lányi és Pál Havasréti from the
who is, at the same time, member of the Vujicsics Ensemble, of the Quartet B and of the Borbély Quartet, as well as
my wife Judit Kóta and myself.
