NICOLAS HORVATH

Nicolas Horvath is an unusual artist with an unconventional résumé. He began his music studies at the Académie de Musique Prince Rainier III de Monaco, and at the age 16, he caught the attention of the American conductor Lawrence Foster who helped him to secure a three-year scholarship from the Princess Grace Foundation in order to further his studies. His mentors include a number of distinguished international pianists, including Bruno Leonardo Gelber, Gérard Frémy, Eric Heidsieck, Gabriel Tacchino, Nelson Delle-Vigne, Philippe Entremont, Oxana Yablonskaya and Liszt specialist Leslie Howard who helped to lay the foundations for Horvath’s current recognition as a leading interpreter of Liszt’s music. He is the holder of a number of awards, including First Prize of the Scriabin and the Luigi Nono International Competitions.

Known for his boundary-less musical explorations, Horvath is an enthusiastic promoter of contemporary music. He has commissioned numerous works and collaborated with leading contemporary composers from around the world, including Philip Glass, Régis Campo, Mamoru Fujieda, Jaan Rääts, Alvin Curran and Valentin Silvestrov—and has rediscovered forgotten or neglected composers such as Champion de Chambonnières, Jacquet de la Guerre, Hélène de Montgeroult, Friedrich Kalkbrenner and K.A. Hermann, to name but a few.

He has become noted for performing concerts of unusual length, sometimes lasting over twelve hours, such as his performances of Philip Glass complete piano music. His overnight performance of the complete piano music of Erik Satie at the Paris Philharmonie in October 2018 drew a cumulative audience of 14,000 people. In May 2019 he was honoured to be invited back to the Paris Philharmonie to perform Philip Glass’s Études, sharing the stage with the composer himself. Nicolas Horvath is a Steinway Artist.
