Discography: Imre Lachegyi: Visio

More on the project »

Imre Lachegyi’s 2012 album ‘Visio’ is the first recording of his original compositions. The other performers are his children: Róza, Anna and Máté and an excellent jazz drummer, Szilveszter Miklós, who is also familiar with the free improvised music. Some of the pieces of the recording are close to contemporary classical music, while others more belong to jazz due to their rhythmic, melodic and harmonic elements. Impressions from Hungarian folk music and world music can also be found in them. However, the music cannot be reckoned among any musical genres. Most of the compositions have been written in a two-year period before the recording — the only exception is ‘Humming Song’, which is one of the first original piece of Imre Lachegyi. The solemn, yet intimate piece ‘Sub umbra illius’ has been written as a tribute to the great free musician and pianist György Szabados, who died a year before the release. In some of the pieces Máté has also contributed as a co-writer or with writing the piano accompaniment.
