György Ferenczi and his orchestra accompanying him on this unusual evening remind us of the story of two young poets of tragic fate, Sándor Petőfi and Attila Gérecz.
They are the heroes of the two true battles of independence in Hungarian history, who have lost their lives in the ever-diminishing glory of the victorious days of an ill-stared and sad country. One of them have passed in the year 1849 on the blood-soaked battlefield in Segesvár, the other in November of 1956 on the street in Budapest.
Only God knows, how long they could have lived without the revolution, what kind of poets they would have turned into in a jovial world, and until when would have their memory live after living a much more comfortable life.
Particular times create special heroes and great poets, who live and die for God and the homeland and their memory lives on through their acts and poems.
As Petőfi has been an example for Gérecz, surely Gérecz will be an example somewhere for a young poet in the grand revolution of the future maybe just like that for György Ferenczi accompanied by the Rackajam.
