I am not exaggerating when I say that, whatever I achieved as a musician, I owe more to Leó Weiner than to anyone else. ... To me, he remains an outstanding example of what a musician should be.

János Balázs (piano)

In 2018, during a tour marking his 30th birthday, János Balázs gave recitals in several important concert halls around the world: from Teatro Colón in Bogota, the Brussels Bozar to Toronto and the ‘Cziffra chapel’ in Senlis, then by way of Hanoi, Moscow (Tchaikovsky Concert Hall) and Munich we could hear him in the Grand Hall of the Liszt Academy. Other important concert venues: Konzerthaus, Barbican Centre, Concertgebouw, Cité de la Musique. He has appeared in the company of Mischa Maisky, Tamás Vásáry, José Cura, Andrea Rost and István Várdai. “János Balázs plays with refined technique, fine feelings and lyricism, but in the more virtuoso pieces he sometimes allowed himself a little extra fun, adding frightening difficulties to opuses already virtually unplayable for pianists.” (Christian Lorandin)
