    Budapest-born Jenõ Lisztes started to play the cimbalom — Hungary’s most famous instrument — at the age of four, continuing a tradition he inherited from his father and grandfather. After beginning studies with Ágnes Szakály, Lisztes enrolled in the Franz Liszt Music Academy, where he worked with Ilona Szeverényi Gerencsérné and from which he graduated in 2010 as a cimbalom teacher and artist. Lisztes has been a member of Roby Lakatos Ensemble since 2006, and he performed as part of his own jazz trio, the Jenõ Lisztes Cimbalom Project.
