The chamber-musician – a lifetime's passion

Already during his years of studying Robert Nagy was seized by the magic of making music with others. A decisive role in his chamber musical development was played by prominent teachers like Sándor Devich (previously violinist of the Bartók Quartett) and György Kurtág. Under their guidance he could study the most beautiful and important pieces of music literature.

Eva Kardos & Robert Nagy


The first lasting ensemble was founded in his years of studying. The duo with the pianist Éva Kardos (who became his wife later on) is still active. The repertoire deals with practically the whole literature for cello and piano. Their performances were conserved by various radio- and also CD-recordings. As a convinced advocate of the string trio genre he was founding member of the Vienna Philharmonia Trio in 1995 and from 1999 on member of the Vienna Belvedere Trio.

Philharmonic partners

The usual performance with the members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra refers not only to the orchestral performance. Together with his excellent colleeges Robert Nagy appears in various chamber music formations, e.g. among others the ensembles "Vienna Classics" and the "Wiener Mozartisten".
