As a part of his 2017/2018 World Tour, Adam Gyorgy returns to Esplanade Concert Hall with a poetic program with works of Frederic Chopin, Franz Liszt and his own improvisations. Known best for his Liszt interpretations, Mr. Gyorgy is recognized worldwide as one of today’s finest pianists. In 2012, he opened the UEFA European Football Championship in Warsaw with a fun and unique interpretation of Chopin’s Winterwind broadcast live to an audience of 300 million across the globe. As a prestigious Steinway Artist, he has played in multiple sold out performances at Carnegie Hall, sold-out performances at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts (Canada), the Palace of Arts (Hungary) among others. His recent performances include The United Nations Day Humanitarian Awards Gala Dinner in New York City where he was invited to the 70thAnniversary of United Nations as the honorary musical guest.

“I have a problem speaking now, as it is difficult to impress people after Adam Gyorgy performs...”
- United Nations Association of New York Gala, 22nd October, 2015 

Alain Cochard, concertclassic.com, Paris
‘Gyorgy never rushes and takes time to mold his sound, to tell the story. Even in the most virtuosic passages, the note never barks, capturing the magic of Chopin. The piano of the storyteller and poet filled the gallery and the player’s musicianship was evident as every note hits its target. The paraphrase from Rigoletto is a celebration of bel canto, delivered with style and a crazy charm, like La Campanella where the instrument twinkles with a thousand colours.’
