ABOUT

ROBY LAKATOS

Roby Lakatos was born in Budapest in 1965, becoming the seventh generation of a noble gypsy family of musicians after his violinist father János Bihari. His musical upbringing was due to his talented father who began teaching him at a young age, which resulted in him already playing in Sándor Jároka’s ensemble by the age of fourteen.

In 1984 he was invited to Belgium on a three month contract with his first ensemble, where he achieved one success after another. A few years later a restaurant and music club, ”Les Ateliers de la Grand Ile” formally contracted him. He formed his unique style during his twelve years there which was an amalgamation of classical music, gypsy music and jazz.

The club’s clientele was often enriched by famous representatives of the international music world. In this way during his time in Brussels, Roby Lakatos had the opportunity to meet world famous musicians of the likes of Yehudi Menuhin, Stephane Grappelli, Zubin Mehta, Esa-Pekka Salonen vagy Makszim Vengerov.

After his time in Belgium a New York based management office, Columbia started organising more significant concerts for the Hungarian violinist.

OUR

VISION

For this reason the Roby Lakatos foundation defines all partners, sponsors and investors as those who appreciate values in people, and recognize the wonder of artistic skills. Those who beyond the aforementioned acknowledge the results that can be attained together for the good of the individual and that of society.

Talented youngsters, those patrons who wish to help them in addition to professional mentors, experience music similarly and form a unique trio which works exactly like an instrumental trio: they are each of importance, and can only together form a “production”.

It is indeed a mission to give youngster such assistance, which in addition to concrete primary objectives is of considerable moral significance.

“He who begins life with music will bring joy to all later activities. The value gained from this will help overcome problems in life. Music is a re-energizing, consoling elixir, a beauty of life, and that which is of value is multiplied through it.” (Kodály Zoltán)
