Orchestra, choir, ensemble


The Equinox quartet was formed in 1993. The two founding members, Tibor Márkus and Imre Héder set out to follow in the footsteps of John Coltrane and Wayne Shorter, and to nurture their musical legacy applying an individual approach. Their first CD, released in 1995, reflects this objective. Their second CD entitled Three Trees came out in 1999 with guest appearances by Mihály Borbély, Kornél Fekete Kovács and Ferenc Schreck, thus extending the line-up to a septet. The musical style of Equinox is closest to modern mainstream jazz. Their repertoire includes original compositions mostly penned by Tibor Márkus, with an emphasis on melody and accessibility. The band made its third CD in 2002, which also contains vocal pieces performed by Linda Kovács and Martina Király with guest musicians Gábor Juhász, Kornél Fekete Kovács, and András Dés. The title of the album is Are You Free?. The band has been invited to jazz festivals and events in various European cities.
