Zsolt Bognár’s performances in America, Europe and Asia have been described by European critics as “overwhelmingly visceral,” and “a phenomenal sound world realized through maximum palette.”
Bognár released a much-lauded first CD of works of Schubert and Liszt in 2013, recorded in Berlin with producer Philipp Nedel. Recipient of the 2007 Arthur Loesser Prize and having studied with Sergei Babayan for over 10 years, Bognár is frequently invited to perform chamber music with members of the Cleveland Orchestra in live NPR broadcasts.
Winner of numerous international piano competitions in America and in Europe, he is the host of “Living the Classical Life”– a film series with musicians from around the world. His musical collaborations and diverse projects were the recipient of an International Festival Society Grant in 2013 to spend a week with Martha Argerich, and have included international speaking engagements including two TED talks broadcast to 172,000 people in 164 countries, and has garnered residencies in performance series and universities.
