With the exception of a stint in Italy, the young pianist Gábor Farkas is a product of pure Hungarian tradition, differing in this from the multinational training common to so many artists of international stature. Born in 1981, he began to study music at the age of five. Farkas attended the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, a Budapest conservatory with roots in Franz Liszt's own time. In the year 2000 he made an initial splash, winning the Béla Bartók Piano Competition in the Austrian spa town of Baden bei Wien. It would be the first of many competition victories; he followed it up with a win at the Hungarian National Radio Piano Competition in 2003. All this occurred before his graduation from the conservatory in 2005; he went on for a doctoral degree there in 2014, studying with Zoltán Kocsis.
