In January 2023, the Párniczky Quartet presented its repertoire at the Hungarian House of Music, summing up the 22 years of work of the band Nigun, and the process of creating the album Bartók Electrified (BMC Records, 2018). "A sovereign European improvisational musical language, integrating elements of modern chamber jazz, contemporary and folk music" – the words of János Gonda are exactly fitting for the material of the new album Mikrotheos, presented at Opus Jazz Club on the birthday of bandleader András Párniczky. The band members – Péter Bede (tárogató, alto saxophone) and Péter Ajtai (bass) – have been Párniczky's partners in more than 300 concerts, both in Europe and overseas. They are joined by drummer Ágoston Szabó-Sipos, who played the folk violin before studying jazz at the Budapest Academy of Music and the Karol Lipiński Academy of Music in Wrocław.

András Párniczky, the quartet's leader, was awarded a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in 1999, and in the same year he won the Hungarian State Eötvös Scholarship. In 2014, he became an official artist of Collings Guitars and Mandolins in the US. Having published numerous papers at home and abroad, he obtained his doctorate at the Liszt Academy of Music in 2022. His dissertation on the inspirational power of Béla Bartók's music in jazz will also be published in book form in 2024.
