Our programme is composed of early music and contemporary church music pieces of the Advent period. Purely vocal blocks are connected by Renaissance lute music performed by lutenist Csaba Nagy.
Ausculta Ensemble was founded in 2014 by two monks from Bakonybél and two friends living in Budapest.
All are active choir singers, and although they were educated in different music schools, they quickly found the unity of sound and style that forms the basis of their work together.
Their rehearsals are usually held in Bakonybél, at which time they are delighted to perform at the liturgy, give concerts from time to time, and have also released a CD.
He began his musical studies in Szentendre. After graduating from the Kodály Zoltán Secondary School for Music in Deberecen, he received a degree from the University of Music in Bratislava. As a lutenist he regularly gives solo and chamber music concerts in Hungary and abroad. As a soloist, his repertoire includes rarely heard and now nearly forgotten Renaissance and Baroque works, performed on period lutes (Renaissance and Baroque lute, vihuela, teorba). He is the founder of the Recercare Early Music Workshop and Veszprém Early Music Days, dedicated to medieval and Renaissance music, and was its artistic director until 2017. Until 2019, he was a guitar teacher at Dohnányi Ernő Secondary School for Music in Veszprém, and currently teaches classical guitar and chamber music at Csermák Antal Music School.
