Bogányi – Man and piano

Hungarian pianist, Sibelius Academy alumnus Gergely Bogányi performs in a concert with piano music students

You can watch a free live stream of the concert on Youtube, 22 October, 19–21.

In a masterclass organised in connection with the concert, Bogányi introduces students to the secrets of his grand piano design. The modern materials and futuristic look of the grand piano are designed to serve Bogányi’s tonal ideal of a singing and multitonal grand-piano sound. The concert is organised in collaboration with the Hungarian Cultural Centre.
