Calcutta School of Music, in association with the Hungarian Cultural Centre, presents a recital by the Zoltan Kodaly Trio. The recital consists of soprano, flute, flota, shepherd’s pipe and piano. Marianna Sipos will perform the soprano. The soprano roles of Mozart, Bach, Handel, Bellini, Strauss and many other arias, songs and outstanding pieces of native Hungarian music can be found in her repertoire. She takes pride in having acquainted audiences worldwide with Hungarian music, and thereby popularised it. All flute organs will be performed by Mark Fulep, whose repertoire spans from early baroque to contemporary music. He plays Hungarian folk music and his instruments are Transdanubian and the Paloc flute. As a young artist, Tihamer Hlavacsek participated in a film on Zoltan Kocsis. His recordings have been aired on Hungarian radio as well as other parts of the world.
