Horváth-Lantos Duo

Orchestra, choir, ensemble


The duo is well known in both the Hungarian and European contemporary jazz scene. They had been playing together in different formations for many years, before they formed their duo in mid-2000. Their music is rooted deeply in the traditions of their home land, but does not lack the influence of foreign music cultures either, thus the music of the East, Indian classical music, contemporary music, and free jazz are all essential constituents of their compositions and improvisations.
Zoltán Lantos who learnt classical violin, also mastered the Indian playing technique during the 9 years he spent in the country. He played with such outstanding musicians as Márta Sebestyén, László Dés, Mihály Dresch, and Gábor Juhász, and also with Charlie Mariano, Ramesh Shotham, Renaud Garcia-Fons, Lars Danielsson, Dhafer Youssef, Markus Stockhausen, Achim Tang, and Patrice Heral. Besides his own band, Mirrorworld, he also gives solo performances using special electronic effects and loops.
Kornél Horváth is one of Hungary’s most notable percussion players, who plays not only the well-known congas and bongos, but also more exotic instruments, like the gatham, gatodrum, chekere, udu, hang, etc. He was founding member of the successful Trio Stendhal and the L.A. Band, and has worked with a number of international greats, like David Friedman, Randy Brecker, Tommy Campbell, Carlo Rizzo, or oud-player, virtuoso Munir Bashir. In 1992 his solo CD, Rag Handed was released. Apart from being a noted musician he also endeavours to promote the case of Hungarian jazz at home and abroad.
