Félix Lajkó

violinist

Often referred to as the Devil’s Violinis or a child prodigy, once he is on stage with an instrument – be it the violin or the zither – Lajkó is capable of  doing anything, of guarding his audience to a world that opens up only to those born with a special talent. Félix Lajkó handles music rather impulsively. There is no need to define the style or genre of his music, since it is exactly about the opposite: transgressing styles, accepting the inexplicable.

“My music is essentially based on the sensitivity and variability of my instrument. I do not play any so-called new-style music; I just have my way in improvising and composing. I do not differentiate between musical styles and trends; I play folk, classical, rock, blues, jazz, and improvised tunes alike. At the moment I would describe my music as sentimental metal.”

Lajkó has played together with a large number of well-known bands and musicians. He has had several concerts with the romanian starviolinist Alexander Balanescu, the internationally known VOLOSI from Poland, His violin music captivated musically sensitive audiences in Tokyo, Amsterdam, Berlin, Bratislava, Prague, Budapest, Brașov, Belgrade, Sarajevo, Ljubljana, Frankfurt, Lyon, Bordeaux, Venice, Verona, Edinburgh, London, Tallinn, Munich, Vienna, and New York.
