BIOGRAPHY:

Kovács Ferenc 

Hungarian violin and trumpet player

born 16. July, 1957 in Budapest, Hungary

Involved in György Szabados "Body of Work":

We have given the strongest free musical concert with the MAKÚZ in the Art Gallery in Szombathely, its title was “Watching into the well”. It lasted from A.M. 10 to P.M. 9. It was a really fantastic experience. We made rehearsals regularly over several years in the then Kassák Club, and many times we made recordings, too. These were the greatest musical pieces, although they were not published anywhere. You know that the clear sounds and the authentic resonations do not cease to exist but they can still be heard somewhere in the ethereal universe.
