Erika Miklósa: The Other Way – w/ Kornél Fekete-Kovács and the Modern Art Orchestra
“Looking back on the past 20 years, it seems to me that tere is not much difference between the life of an opera singer and a marathon runner. What is needed is enormous discipline, hard work, perseverance, long-term effort – an investment, so to speak. These present a series of challenges – facing them makes you stronger and even more experienced. And of course, you need courage to be able to make an extraordinary CD, such as this one. Yes, courage – an luck – is necessary for a group of fantastic musicians of all sorts to find the same wavelenght; and to make music together so professionally, with so much love, forming a stable basis for the bridging of genres. And let us not forget all the work behind the scenes, ensuring the best possible conditions. All I can do is express my gratitude. Thank you fr all the love, for accepting me, for being so patient – and above all, thank you for this exceptional CD. Because there is no OTHER WAY to do it!” /Erika Miklósa/
After a long silence this time the audience is invited to hear fragments of the album of Erika Miklósa. This time exclusively Kornél Fekete-Kovács, the world famous trumpet player and orchestrator joins Erika to compile together a perfect performance of the worlds of the two talents: jazz meets opera and operette, Bernstein meets Cole Porter, Rossini and Gershwin in a surprisingly personal way.
With the precious support and fantastic sounding of the Modern Art Orchestra.
