"I dare say that this ability could be measured by
Chopin's standards. "
Zoltán Kocsis, 2010
I started my piano studies at the age of six with Erika Becht using a special re-composition method. At the age of 17, I won the Louis Braille piano competition in Moscow, and after spending two years at the Vienna Academy of Music, I obtained an artist diploma at the Royal Conservatory in Toronto as a student of Leon Fleisher. My mentors were Zoltán Kocsis and Tamás Vásáry.

„This is absolutely splendid Mozart playing. There is not the slightestconcession to physical disability: no safe tempos, no overpedalling, nohesitations, before awkward keyboard leaps or to manage difficult handpositions..”
„Only those with a sense of vocation whose mother tongue is music, Mozart's music, can play in such a manner.”
