The professional career of Béla Drahos, flutist and conductor, spans both the domestic and international classical music scene, thanks to his exceptional talent.

He has been playing the flute since the age of eight. Throughout his career, he has collaborated with various orchestras and theater performances. From a young age, he played a significant role as a flutist in the Hungarian classical music scene. The audience at home recognized him as the principal flutist of the Hungarian State Opera House and the solo flutist of the Hungarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, but he has also performed in the most prestigious concert halls worldwide, from London to New York to Tokyo.

He has also had a broad career as a conductor. Among other roles, in 1993, he served as the solo flutist of the Hungarian State Concert Orchestra and as assistant to conductor Ken-Ichiro Kobayashi.

His role as a music educator is also exceptionally important in nurturing and developing the talents of the next generation.

This year, for the second time, the audience at Csigó Malom can meet Béla Drahos as part of the "Masters and Students" series, where he will perform a concert with one of his students, Ágota Háromszéki. He will be accompanied on piano by Tamás Vasvári, pianist.

The evening's musical host is music historian János Mácsai, who will also talk about renowned masters and their well-known students from the past as part of the program.
