After Crying, one of the most exciting groups on the Hungarian music scene, was formed in 1986. 22 years later, after 10 albums and 1 concert DVD there can be no doubt that the autonomous world and unique sound of After Crying has won the place it deserves in international music life.
Right from the start the members of the ensemble have consciously built their values, looking to the great figures of European culture as their principal examples. They have been influenced in classical music by Bach, Beethoven and Bartók, and in “light” music mainly by the work of Emerson, Lake and Palmer and King Crimson. In literature their outlook has been shaped above all by Shakespeare, Dostoyevsky, János Arany, Frigyes Karinthy, Attila József and Sándor Weöres, and in philosophy by Aristotle, Saint Thomas Aquinas and G. K. Chesterton.
The artistic aim of the classically trained members of After Crying is to create works that make use of elements of contemporary musical vernacular and so can be understood by many, but which are at the same time capable of conveying serious content on serious themes on a high artistic standard. This is a kind of “modern classical music” that wishes to speak both to the audience of its own age and to eternity. The instruments used for concert performances range from classical instruments (cello, trumpet, piano) through the main instruments of rock music to modern electronic devices. In addition to much international recognition, After Crying won the eMeRTon Prize in 2004.
