Performing art - János Nagy Quintet


In 2002 my friend, eMeRTon prize-winner jazz piano player-composer János Nagy looked up Judit Kóta, because he needed a folk singer for one of his productions.

As it turned out, János wanted to arrange some protestant songs. It was a matter of seconds to find the common note, and in addition to the singing the hurdy-gurdy also became part of the team.

Soon the record „Szívemet Hozzád emelem” (To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul) was made. The songs that can be heard on the CD are, except for two, protestant songs of praise originating from Debrecen and Nagyvárad and dating from the 17th-18th Centuries. It is a special honour that we were allowed to use the writings of pastor Németh Pál in the booklet of the CD.
