Roland Szentpáli - Tuba

(c) Balàzs Szecsôdi

24 - 29 July 2020

The Hungarian musician Roland Szentpali first took up the euphonium at the age of twelve, before learning to play the tuba just one year later. In the 1990s, Szentpali studied first at the Béla-Bartók Academy and then later at the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest. He won three 1st prizes at the International Tuba Competition in Cheju (South Korea), the International Performer's Competition in Brno (Czech Republic) in 2000 and at the Lahti International Brass Competition (Finland) in 2001. He is currently principal tuba of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra and an internationally sought-after soloist. Roland Szentpali has also made a name for himself as a composer: many of his works for tuba and chamber ensemble or orchestra were premiered by the Hungarian Radio Orchestra. His latest solo CD "I killed my lips" also included four of his own compositions. The tuba player also regularly gives master classes in the USA, Japan and many European countries.
