The excitement of a pianist in concert

Dezsö Ránki (Budapest, 1951) is an extraordinary pianist with a passion for artistic daring; a member, alongside András Schiff and Zoltán Kocsis, of an exceptional trio of Hungarian pianists born in the 1950s are consolidated as part of the history of European piano, having renewed the grand tradition of Hungarian pianists handed down by Géza Anda and György Cziffra. The critics have applauded his musical openness, which has distanced him from more media-friendly venues and made him a “cult” pianist; his precision, vigour and commitment to the most demanding music.

He trained at the famous Franz Liszt Academy of Music -“The Academy has a long tradition, but its most effective working method is that it has no method,” he said once. Dezsö Ránki began studying piano at the age of 8, and was a professional at 22. A specialist in Bartók and Liszt, naturally, Dezsö Ránki, an award-winning pianist who at 21 had already conquered the Grand Prix du Disque, with a wide-ranging repertoire in a fabulous series of recordings. Notwithstanding, he observes soberly: “No record offers the excitement of a concert.” Although he initially produced many records for the Hungaroton label, he began to record less and less: “Every time I go into a shop and see thousands of records I’m appalled. There are too many. I prefer to recommend people go out to concert halls,” he said in 2000, when record shops still existed.

His presence in Seville is doubly attractive, as he is a type of pianist rarely seen in Spain. And the programme is simply irresistible: from the late Classicism of F. J. Haydn's Sonata Hob. XVI: 46, a piece of extraordinary density and subtlety from 1770, to the avant-garde, evanescent Impressionism of Claude Debussy’s six pieces for his two series of “Images” from 1905 and 1907 (he once said, “I don’t think Debussy is played as much as he deserves: he composed little, but what he did is among the best work written for the piano,” revealing himself an enthusiast) and ending in Sonata D.960 by F. Schubert, a monumental piece composed in 1828, in his final months of life, ending his cycle of 21 piano sonatas.
