Broadway Songbook: George Gershwin, Cole Porter & Stephen Sondheim

In 2016 Júlia started to tour with her Gershwin Project. It presents the most famous pieces of George Gershwin, as well as less known songs, featuring a String Quartet. The concert evokes the real Broadway atmosphere with a modern twist. For Júlia Karosi Gershwin represents a bridge between classical and jazz, and at the same time it is an excellent springboard for experimentation. The concert features the Júlia Karosi Quartet and the RTQ string quartet, for which Márton Fenyvesi has prepared the scoring of classical jazz numbers.

In 2018 Júlia Karosi released an album, in memory of George Gershwin, recorded Live at The Franz Liszt Academy, Budapest.
