Adam Gyorgy (Piano)

Born: Hungary

The Hungarian pianist, Adam Gyorgy, was accepted to the Béla Bartók Conservatory as a prodigy in 1994, at the age of 12. He flourished under the tutelage of his piano teacher, Katalin Halmagyi, who continues to be his mentor and a key member of his creative team. In 1998 he won the National Youth Piano Competition, and two years later won Hungary’s Pianist 2000 award at the age of 18. He was accepted at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest in 2000 and studied under Professors György Nador and Balazs Reti. He graduated in 2006 and is currently doing his doctoral studies at the Liszt Academy with a state scholarship.

In 2002 Adam Gyorgy won the Vienna Classics Prize (Wiener-Klassik-Preis) with his outstanding interpretation of Haydn’s Sonata in G major (No. 54). In 2003 he won the Special Prize at the San Remo International Piano Competition, and in 2004 he won all prizes (First Prize, Grand Prize and Special Prize) at the First International Chopin Piano Competition in Budapest. That same year, CNN World Report identified him as a “rising star.”

In 2005 Adam Gyorgy was invited to the Steinway Artist community, a signal honor that places him in the company of the greatest pianists of all time, including Vladimir Horowitz, Artur Rubinstein, Krystian Zimmerman. On October 22, 2006 Adam debuted at New York's Carnegie Hall to great acclaim. He continues to tour the world, delighting audiences in the USA, Europe and Southeast Asia with his virtuosity, his charm, and his improvisations on well-known melodies, all of which invite comparisons to the incomparable Franz Liszt.

A supportive and dedicated group stands behind Adam Gyorgy's success. He credits his teachers Katalin Halmagyi, György Nador, and Balazs Reti with the artistic direction of his concerts. His management team, led by his brother Laszlo György, books his concerts and handles publicity.
