Praised by the German press for his sold-out Berlin debut at Konzerthaus in Gendarmenmarkt, Zsolt Bognár has also made recent debut performances in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Munich, Brussels, Vienna, and in Tokyo’s Suntory Hall. Mr. Bognár subsequently released an album of works of Schubert and Liszt, recorded in Berlin with producer Philipp Nedel. Recipient of the 2007 Arthur Loesser Prize and having studied with Sergei Babayan for over ten years, Mr. Bognár frequently performs chamber music with members of the Cleveland Orchestra in live NPR broadcasts. Winner of several international piano competitions in America and in Europe, he is also the host of “Living the Classical Life”, a filmed series of portraits highlighting the life, music, psychology, and work process of prominent musicians from around the world, presented by Elyria Pictures in New York. His musical collaborations and diverse projects were the recipient of two International Festival Society Grants to spend two summers with Martha Argerich in Lugano, and he has given two TED talks in San Francisco.
