Richard Szaniszlo, Hungarian vibraphonist

My band was founded in 2004, and the band gave a concert - live radio broadcast - in the Radio Bartók second chance in  2005. Our music is based on vibraphone, that instrument has a very "humanistic sound". The leader's compositions combine the contemporary music language with the popular melody, on the other hand this music is also an example of enjoyable musical texture. The leader of the band had already got extra prize and was finalist as a soloist or composer in Hungary and USA (International Songwriting Competition). The members of the band are unique musicians, in this manner the sheet music comes true. www.fidelio.hu/klub/szaniszlorichardHe graduated from Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in 2000, as a percussion artist.
