...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Prokofiev Recital

Prokofiev piano solo pieces and transcriptions by István Lajkó

István Lajkó (piano)

István Lajkó is one of those totally dedicated and responsible artists who does not seek easy fame. Holder of the Junior Prima Prize and currently teacher at the music academies of both Budapest and Cologne, Lajkó feels a special attraction towards Russian music and his doctoral dissertation covered a little-known chapter of the great Russian school of piano, illuminating it with exciting details. Prokofiev is particularly close to his heart; he considers, not totally without justification, that the composer’s oeuvre is neglected in Hungarian concert life. Hence his decision to devote a solo recital to the brilliant composer. The programme put together with considerable imagination and expertise features not only piano works but symphonic pieces, too – in arrangements for piano by István Lajkó.
