Event Information

As a pianist, Adam Gyorgy seeks to preserve the tradition of historic classical artists, while using his distinct style of improvisation to compose his original music. In 2012, Mr. Gyorgy opened the UEFA European Football Championship in Warsaw with an interpretation of Chopin’s “Winter Wind,” broadcast live around the world. He is a Steinway Artist and has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts in Canada, the Palace of Arts in Hungary, and the Esplanade Concert Hall in Singapore among other leading concert venues. Adam Gyorgy is The Hungary Initiatives Foundation Cultural Ambassador 2017.

Adam Gyorgy will perform a unique one hour program with no intermission with works of Frederic Chopin, Franz Liszt and his own. The audience will begin this musical journey with Adam Gyorgy’s improvisations, which always tells a genuine and personal story of Adam’s emotional experiences. This 20-minute section includes melodies from Adam Gyorgy’s childhood including well-known Hungarian folk-songs and his own simple melodies and finished with Chopin's Nocturne in c minor (Op 48. No. 2).

Afterwards, Mr. Gyorgy will continue with his favorite romantic repertoire from Frederic Chopin and Franz Liszt. The following two miniatures: two Chopin Mazurkas (c sharp minor Op. 6 No. 2 and a minor Op. 17 No. 4) are Chopin's rarely played short masterpieces. As a detour from poetry and before the meaningful coda of the night, Mr. Gyorgy quickly revisits his favorite repertoire with two of his often played virtuosic pieces: Franz Liszt's Rigoletto Paraphrase and La Campanella.

Mr. Gyorgy finishes his program with one of the most famous and most virtuosic compositions of Franz Liszt, the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2.
