One of the world's leading piano talents, Hungarian Adam Gyorgy will visit Bali as part of a nation-wide concert tour in August 2007.INDONESIA PUSAKA TOUR - Adam Gyorgy
Acknowledged early as a child-prodigy, Gyorgy was accepted when barely a teenager at the Bela Bartok Conservatory in 1994, later graduating from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music, in Budapest. He is currently undertaking doctoral studies at the Liszt Academy as a State scholarship winner.
Despite his relative youth, Adam Gyorgy has shone at a number of international piano competitions. In 1998, he won the National Youth Piano Competition followed, two years later, by winning the coveted 'Pianist 2000' Award in Hungary. The accolades and awards continued in 2002 when his masterful interpretation of Haydn in Vienna secured Gyorgy the "Vienna Classics Prize" (Wiener-Klassik-Preis). This was followed with a special prize at the San Remo International Piano Competition in 2003 and a grand sweep of three categories at the International Chopin Piano Competition, in Budapest in 2004.
Crossing the Atlantic, Gyorgy made his Carnegie Hall debut in New York in 2006, just one year after being invited to join the Steinway Artists Community - a hallowed circle reserved exclusively for piano virtuosos.
CNN World Report lauded Gyorgy as "the rising star in 2004."
With honors and prizes rolling in, the 25-year-old is already considered among the best pianists of his generation. Drawing his inspiration from the musical spirit of Liszt, Adam Gyorgy's charming appearance and charismatic stage presence have earned him following more normally accorded a rock star than a classical musician. His current touring schedule includes the United States, Europe, Southeast Asia and China.
The Indonesia Tour
Adam Gyorgy will perform in Jakarta on August 7; the Royal Palace of Yogyakarta on August 12; Gajah Mada University in Yogyakarta on August 17; and in a special appearance in Bali on August 21, 2007.
Dubbed the "Indonesia Pusaka Tour", Gyorgy will pay special tributes to the works of the immortal Indonesian composer Ismail Marzuki. The concert will, of course, also include selections from the young pianist's award-winning classical repertoire.
The Event's organizer states that Adam Gyorgy's Indonesian appearances represent part of efforts to build a cross-cultural dialogue between Indonesia and Hungary.
Mr. Gyorgy's Indonesian concert tour is also being recorded by Hungarian Television for eventual broadcast in Europe.
The Concert Tour is sponsored by Citra Amalia in cooperation with the Embassy of Hungary in Jakarta and, in Bali, by the Bali International Woman Association (BIWA) with some of the proceeds to benefit community programs in Bali.
