Gergely Bogányi piano
Gergely Bogányi, born in 1974 into a musical Hungarian family, has even physically a profile which reminds Listz. His brilliant technique, coupled with a deeply expressed artistic interpretation, has made him an outstanding international performer.
Born in Vác, Hungary, Gergely Bogányi began playing the piano at the age of four. He continued his studies at the Liszt Academy in Budapest with Laszlo Baranyay. He also studied at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki with Professor Matti Raekallio, and at the university of Indiana in Bloomington with Professor György Sebök. Among his professors he cordially remembers Annie Fischer who made a deep impression upon his art.
Gold Medal at the "International Franz Liszt Competition" in Budapest, one of the most distinguished competitions in the world, Bogányi is a musician with a an intense and complete career: his activity goes from solo recitals to concerts with orchestra, but at the same time he is dedicated to teaching and recording projects.
«Like his great fellow countryman, List, whose fame and popularity was akin to that of a rock star in his day, Gergely Bogányi is a pianist of the concert hall…What can this magician of the piano be expected to pull out of his hat next?»
