All the way from Budapest via New York, Adam Gyorgy delighted a raptured audience at St John’s Smith Square, the stunning concert venue in Westminster.
The venue has perfect acoustics and you could hear every nuance of the piano recital.
The recital programme was dedicated to Liszt (Gyorgy is an ambassador of Liszt’s music) plus an original composition by Gyorgy himself called A day in New York. The piece had a cinematic feel reminiscent of Gershwin.
The programme included:
Liszt Piano Sonata in B minor, La Campanella, Rigoletto Paraphrase and Hungarian Rhapsody No 2.
Encores were Mendelssohn’s Wedding March and Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Harold Alren.
Gyorgy’s incredible technical abilities and great stage presence made this recital unforgettable; London was the last stop of his UK tour. He famously gave talks at TEDx and performed at the EURO 2012 ceremony.
If you have never heard Adam play, here’s a couple of videos:
