"Bartók's music is airy and creates a character space. And this musical space is what the Parniczky Quartet can grasp, and gives back freely and perfectly. Mastery and fresh impetus for Bartók's repertoire” – wrote Raphaël Benoit on the Citizen Jazz.

Europe based four-piece Parniczky Quartet having forged a very unique signature sound that originates in jazz, contemporary classical and Hungarian folk music. The band was formed in 2016 with the aim of playing  adaptations of Béla Bartók's pieces, and that Bartok's artistic world be productive for their improvisations. Andras Parniczky with Nigun (Parniczky’s other group) bandmate Peter Bede and Istvan Balo has performed more than 300 gigs around the world, including venues like the New York Guggenheim Museum, Brussels Bravo Art Festival, Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival, KlezMore Festival Vienna. Marcell Gyanyi joins them on bass as one of the most respected young representatives of his instrument not only in Hungary but also in Europe. Their first album the Bartók Electrified published by BMC in 2018. This repertoire was performed with the collaboration of the guitarist Frank Möbus and the tenorsaxophonist Daniel Erdmann at the MÜPA. In 2019 the Quartet has toured along with the bassist Carlos Bica and drummer Dejan Terzic.
