After a series of platinum CDs and a Guinness record, it is just natural for HAVASI to launch albums from time to time which give people a whole new vision of the classical piano and music.
Endi, a dare-devil of the band Hooligans, has repeatedly proved his talent behind the drums. While at first sight it may be striking to see both guys together, their approach to music is nearly the same and the difference between them is merely apparent.
After almost two years of preparation, ENDI and HAVASI brought out a professional studio album to prove that even in Hungary you can create a kind of music which comes as a surprise to the whole world. You can produce something which is not an imitation. All you need is an original idea and two unique characters.
Freedom, their latest release, may become a real milestone in pop music. It is unprecedented to have an entire musical album protagonised by the classical piano and the rock drum, each a heavy-weight instrument which has excelled in two widely different genres.
A duel or cooperation? Against each other or attuned?
There is a point in all approaches, and this bold experiment, based on the friendship of the two guys, has by now become a brilliant success.
The Drum & Piano Project premiered on 11 July 2011 in Scotland, at TED Global, one of the most prominent scientific conferences in the world.
The common production of the two special characters received a standing ovation both in the most elegant concert halls and at the summer festivals which attract the highest crowds.
