Furiously fast-paced violin playing takes The Hub by storm as these legendary musicians present a dazzling showcase of Hungarian Gypsy folk.
Violinist Geza Hosszu-Legocky and his troupe of 5 DeViLs bring their edge-of-seat virtuosity to The Hub in a vibrant concert of Hungarian Gypsy folk music. Geza’s heritage connects him with a gypsy violin tradition that has been passed down through the generations, and he brings that history up to date with unique interpretations of this irresistible music.
Geza Hosszu-Legocky began playing professionally as a child, performed alongside Monserrat Caballé at the age of 10 and has since been seen on the stages of the greatest concert halls in the world. Alongside this glittering classical career, Geza formed the 5 DeViLs as a way of expressing another vital part of his musical personality, bringing together Eastern European classical styles with popular folk music. This concert sees Geza swapping the concert hall for The Hub for an evening of invigorating folk music performed with breathtaking skill.
