Zemplén Festival has been more than just a job for Budafok Dohnányi Orchestra for many years now. It is also a way for the members and friends of the orchestra to chill and have fun together: in addition to the unique acoustics of the Sárospatak Castle Court, they can spend more time together in this beautiful countryside than it would be possible on a normal day of the year amidst the many rehearsals and concerts. Small ensembles formed by BDO members also have regular opportunities to perform at the Festival.
Trüffel (Truffle) Quartet was founded in 2015 at the request of composer Péter Sárik. Members had already had the pleasure of working together with Péter in BDO and in other productions. In spring 2015, however, he requested a string quartet to be set up from the orchestra for a studio work of his entitled “The Naked Clown”. In the heat of the immediately felt harmony between the members and good-humoured music-making together, the idea of forming an ensemble was born that very day. After that, one invitation was followed by the other: from church concerts to various events, they have also given solo concerts taking up the whole evening.
Trüffel Quartet’s light-hearted, well-known and popular programme promises the audience not only entertainment, but also a rewarding experience and thus a quality time of relaxation. The quartet will perform songs from famous film soundtracks, waltzes and special tango tunes on 15 August at the Szirmay-Waldbott Castle in Tolcsva.
