Szabolcs Kövi

Szabolcs Kövi

I was born on 10th, April in 1972, at half past seven in the morning. My horoscope is Aries with a Twins ascendens.
My father who is a musician (guitar artist and teacher), decided at my birth to raise me as a musician. My bother is four years younger than me and is a cello player. Since our younger days, we have played in a family orchestra and of course in others as well.
I studied music especially the pipe and later the flute with the help of my music teacher, Lászlóné Szilvásy. She was a significant person in my life. With her honesty, she not only gave the love of music, her commitment to the flute but also the ambition to become such a good person as she is.
I started to have a passion for writing at a quite young age. I wrote lots of poems, science fictions and novels. I wanted to become a writer. Since my father strictly raised me to a musical career, I stopped writing because of the lack of time.

In the secondary school of music, I had the same teacher, Lászlóné Szilvásy. With her encouragement, I improvised a lot with my father, and so I realized the best way to express my thoughts and feelings were through music.
In my secondary school years, my favorite composers and artists were György Szabados, Károly Binder and Béla Bartók; but at those days, I did not even think of composing.
I continued my studies in the academy of music in 1989 in Graz. This date is very important since the changes in Hungary and the fall of the Iron Curtain happened at this time.
The years, spent at high school, were the most beautiful for me. I was a rebel, of course, with the purpose of making things better.
In Austria, I found a „perfect" lifestyle with its richness, calmness and boredom, which did not really attract me. After two years, I left the Austrian college, giving me financial safety and I returned to the Hungarian reality. Still, I did not want to continue my studies in Hungary. I wanted to compose music, but in a style on which nowadays’ music has no effect. I did not want to and did not dare to join the trends having an end in themselves. I wanted to carry on the traditions of classical music but not in a classical style. I searched to find harmony, beauty and spirituality in music. I thought that this is the most important tradition of the elder composers.

In my opinion, spirituality is already not expressed by an isolated, local, culture-specific religion. Thanks to our new age, based on information flow, we can get to know other people, cultures and religions. Each person believes in God in a way, so if I try to express spirituality in music, it is not a wonder if I use other people’s musical style, elements and instruments. For me, it is a very special discovery to pick the impressive theories, thoughts from different religions, which is transformed from a strange world religion to a non-religion.
I believe that the most uplifting thought of the 20th and 21st centuries is that we humans are all the same in a way, which means, we all have a kind of „spiritual window" through which we can glance into the world of understanding. In my point of view, in the center of this understanding is God, whom I seek in my life.
I’ve been composing since 1993 and from that time my first albums were published. Currently, I have 16 albums and other works in which I took part and about which information can be found at the RECORD GUIDE.

It is me, who generally plays all the instruments in my music. My most important musical instrument is the flute. I play different kinds of flutes, pipes (Irish, Hungarian, Indian) panflute and didgeridoo. The musical base I create with a sampler, acoustic percussion instruments and other instruments.
If you have any questions please send an E-mail or a letter by post. I try to reply to your letter by E-mail or by post with much pleasure.
