Update: Rhoda Scott & Lady Quartet Budapest Concert Postponed
From the organisers: Due to an accident Rhoda Scott suffered last week she had to postpone her concert scheduled for 11 November. The new date is 14 April 2019.

Please come and enjoy  Rhoda Scott 80. & Lady Quartet’s fantastic concert on April 14th , 2019 from 6:00 PM at the  Papp Laszlo Budapest Sports Arena.

Rhoda Scott is one of the world’s greatest jazz organists. Born in New Jersey, USA, the eldest daughter of an itinerant methodist minister, Rhoda grew up in the atmosphere of the black churches on the East Coast of the United States. While in the environment of many gospel singers, whom she accompanied beginning at the early age of 8, she acquired her incredible instrumental and vocal feeling.

Originally a self-taught musician, at the age of 25 she emerged from the Manhattan School of Music in New York with her Master’s degree in music and honors for the highest scholastic standing in the graduating class.

She made her debut at Count Basie’s Lounge in Harlem where she was “adopted” by all the big names in jazz.

Rhoda then went to Europe to continue her studies in composition, harmony and counterpoint with Mlle Nadia Boulanger in France. She played at the MIDEM in Cannes and her explosive international career took off.

Having arrived at star status, she is enthusiastically and warmly received throughout the entire world today.

What is the reason for her success? She is a complete talent, equally at ease with classical music as with jazz, gospel and blues. Gifted with a prodigious memory, she composes and arranges a major part of her stage repertoire.

On stage, she has a charisma uniquely her own. As any great artist, she is entirely devoted to her art. Her greatest strength is that she is overwhelmingly appreciated by her contemporary jazz musicians as well as by the general public.

“A great, a very great virtuoso” - Arthur Rubinstein

The organizer of the Budapest concert is the Danubius Music Production Office.
