Let It Be Clear Water – in memoriam Tamás Cseh
Saturday, May 26, 2018 / 18:00 - 21:00
Perhaps not even Tamás Cseh would have thought that his songs will touch so many generations.
Two members of the Ascher Theatre, Tamás Joós and Norbert Hegyi, revive the memory of Tamás Cseh by compiling a series of songs that register deeper and deeper in the mind of the newer generations by which these songs gain values comparable to those of folk songs.
The concert’s musical pieces were compiled to commemorate the 70th birthday of the late Tamás Cseh in 2013, and it was payed on stage for more than 50 times during the past five years. The appearances were organized throughout Budapest and several cities and communities across Hungary. Since January 2016, the concert is a regular event at Hunnia Bisztró in Budapest.
