Ákos Hernádi (Piano)

Born: 1959 - Budapest, Hungary

The Hungarian pianist, Ákos Hernádi, began playing the piano at the age of 6 and later entered the special preparatory class for outstanding talents at the Music Academy where his teacher was György Nádor. He won prizes at numerous junior competitions, being awarded the special prize at the Usti nad Laben international competition when he was 13. At the age of 15, he became a student in the university section of the Academy, where he entered Tibor Wehner’s class. Later he entered the performer’s faculty. He successfully entered various international competitions: Barcelona, Viotti/Vercelli, UFAM/Paris.

After graduating, Ákos Hernádi primarily concentrated on chamber music, forming the Hernadi Trio, which performed in a number of European countries. Since 1986 he has lived in Germany, and is currently a professor at the Trossingen Staatliche Musikhochschule.

Ákos Hernádi has made many recordings, and his solo CD of Zoltán Kodály compositions was called “record of the month” by the Swiss journal Musik und Theater. His recordings of Bach-Busoni transcriptions received a rave review from Piano News: “this, which Hernádi offers as a visiting card, is sufficient to raise him to a level shared with the finest performers of these transcriptions.”
