Farley Music Festival 2018 – Ariel Lanyi (piano)

Date/Time
Wednesday 20 June 2018 at 19:00

Ariel Lanyi is a rising star with an unusually mature instinct for the classical style (a challenge for any pianist) which he will demonstrate in a programme that contrasts Mozart’s tragic Adagio in B minor as well as the sunniest of Schubert sonatas, the one in D major D.850.

Ariel Lanyi, born in 1997, began piano lessons with Lea Agmon just before his fifth birthday and made his orchestral debut at the age of 7. Since then, he has given numerous recitals in London, Paris (including Radio France), Rome, Prague, Belfast, and regularly in concerts broadcast live on Israeli radio and television. He has appeared as a soloist with a variety of orchestras in the United Kingdom and Israel, including the Israel Symphony Orchestra and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and has participated in festivals such as the Israel Festival, Ausseer Festsommer, Bosa Antica Festival, Tempietto Festival in Rome, the Ravello Festival, and the Young Prague Festival. In 2017, Ariel was awarded first prize at the Dudley International Piano Competition.

In 2012, Ariel released Romantic Profiles on LYTE records, a recital album featuring Schumannʼs Carnival  Scenes from ViennaLisztʼs Fantasy and  Fugue on the theme B-A-C-H, Brahmsʼ Fantasies Op. 116, and Janacekʼs Piano  Sonata I.X.1905.

Ariel has recently participated in three workshops with Leon Fleisher: the Beethoven and Schubert Institute in Prague (2013), the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival in Lübeck (2014), and the Menuhin Festival and Academy in Gstaad (2014). He played in masterclasses for renowned artists such as Richard Goode, András Schiff, Emanuel Ax, Murray Perahia, Thomas Adès, Andrei Gavrilov, Yefim Bronfman, Paul Badura-Skoda, Leif Ove Andsnes, Ivan Moravec, Imogen Cooper, Pascal Devoyon, Angela Hewitt, Dénes Várjon, Mitsuko Uchida, Jonathan Biss, and others.

Ariel studied at the High School and Conservatory of the Jerusalem Academy of Music, in the piano class of Yuval Cohen.  He also studied violin and composition, and was concertmaster of the High School and Conservatory Orchestra. Currently, he studies as a full scholarship student at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Hamish Milne.
