Ingrid Kertesi and the Budapest Saxophone Quartet

2019. July 31.

„I have always wanted my voice to sound like a music instrument”, says Ingrid Kertesi whose lyrical soprano is often described as ethereal. The applauded star of the Budapest Opera House is equally at home in Baroque music, oratorios as well as classical and contemporary songs. Awarded with the Bartók – Pásztory and Ferenc Liszt Prizes, Ingrid Kertesi has earned her lifelong place in the so-called Company of the Immortals as Melinda, Gilda, Lucia of Lammermoor or Olympia in The Tales of Hoffmann. She also excels as a teacher of the Liszt Academy in Budapest.

Members of the Budapest Saxophone Quartet are convinced that their music instrument can be just as passionate as the human voice. They regularly perform with singers and have in fact recorded music with Ingrid Kertesi. With nearly a dozen awards and more than two thousand performances in and outside Hungary behind them, the group has great merits in widening the repertoire of their music instrument and convincing their growing audience about the infinite possibilities of the saxophone. The Budapest Saxophone Quartet and Ingrid Kertesi are returning stars of Cool on the Beach.
