The CIFRA ensemble consists of four members under the direction of
Dezső RONTÓ who is a descendant of a famous Hungarian musical family.
In 2001 Dezso won first prize in a competition of first violins that took
place in Budapest. Our "cimbalom" player also comes from a musical
family from the village of Magyarpeterlaka in Transylvania. Another two members
of our group come from a revival movement of folk music that took place in
the late 1970's.We play amusing stringed music. We follow a rustic interpretation
of a more ancient origin, and we play a refined style too. Our instruments
include: fiddle, viola, cimbalom, contrabass, hurdy-gurdy, and two antique
instruments, the tambura, and saxsa violin. Our repertoire is wide-ranging,
including: traditional Hungarian gypsy music, csardas, songs of the tavern,
Hungarian and Romanian folks music, virtuoso instrumental solos, waltzes,
tangos,evergreens, and our own interpretations of classical music. We hold
concerts, and perform at a wide variety of private functions including: weddings,
and receptions. You may communicate with us in German, English, French and
of course Hungarian.
