György Molnár Lyra-winning accordion artist and his Concert Orchestra
My whole story started in 1978 when I was born.
My family was fond of music, although none of them was a professional instrumentalist. However, my mother played the piano rather well, my grandmother sang in a choir as a coloratura soprano and my grandfather played the accordion rather well… the latter became my destiny. I had always been a vivid child, but when my grandfather put on his accordion and started to play, I was listening to him playing motionless not to break the spell. These times I felt as if place and time had ceased to exist. . These special occasions aroused my interest in the instrument, although at that time I had no plans for playing the accordion in the future. [ more ]
