Jazz pianist Máté Lachegyi, currently living in the Netherlands, has been active in the Hungarian and international jazz scene for more than ten years. His music constantly balances on borders, creating an exciting and captivating tension. Máté builds his complex musical world out of elementary emotions and moods, characterised by lyricism, cinematography, melancholy and often a kind of mythicism. The desire for an unspoilt relationship with nature also features strongly.

His large-scale compositions are full of unexpected turns. He has drawn inspiration from many sources to find his own voice, from Renaissance vocal polyphony to Scandinavian jazz and contemporary music. The music of Arvo Pärt and Meredith Monk, as well as the art of Tarkovsky, have been particularly influential. His sensitive and daring piano playing has been shaped notably by Ahmad Jamal, Keith Jarrett and Brad Mehldau, and more recently Kit Downes.

His international quartet, founded in Amsterdam, has performed several times in Hungary in recent years. This time they are joined by János Ávéd, one of the most influential and original saxophonists on the Hungarian jazz scene.
