János Palojtay (piano)

“Janos is an artistic personality possessing many rare and important qualities: an extremely sensitive musicality, a probing intellect, a strong and independent viewpoint, charisma and charm. This coupled with his musical and cultural knowledge, memory and pianistic skills give him a real possibility of being a concert artist.” This is how Kirill Gerstein describes the pianist János Palojtay, who has attracted the attention of the music world with his profound, powerful, yet bright and natural performances. Palojtay’s performance style is greatly influenced by the diverse and rich improvisational languages of Baroque style as well as contemporary music and jazz. Similarly to his improvisation style, his classical interpretations are quite unique because of the balance between his analytical thinking and instinctiveness. As a pianist, he explores the musical texture and the depths of the composer’s language and reveals the connection between the score and the performer’s instruction. He has a deep connection with Bartók, Schubert and Scriabin. On the other hand, the art of Bach, Ravel, Liszt and Chopin are also crucial for musicality.
