Ensemble Tabulatura (Hungary)

Tabulatura was founded in 2000, and the band set itself the goal of introducing its listeners to medieval, renaissance and early baroque music, as well as the music that was once widespread in historical Hungary. At their concerts, they use historical instruments and, if possible, period settings, which enhance the experience of concert visitors, creating an authentic atmosphere and mood.
In addition to its concerts, the band also takes part in thematic concerts of Rákócz, Balassi, Tinód, Zsigmond, St. Elizabeth, Mátyás Hunyad, Kálvin, Shakespeare, St. István et al. from festivals and concerts and various traditional events both at home and abroad.
