About our pianist

Praised for her “sparkling, crystal-clear passage-work” (Classical Music Daily) and imagination, Hungarian-British pianist Renata Konyicska has been described as a “true international talent” and her playing as a “triumph of musicianship” (Stratford Herald). She has played solo and chamber music concerts in festivals such as IMS Prussia Cove, Nuits Classiques Megeve, Festival de Piano Classique Biarritz, Encuentro de Musica y Academia de Santander, Internationale Sommerakademie der ISA Reichenau and Liszt Week Esztergom, where she has been a regular artist since its launch. Drawn to music early on Renata was introduced to piano at the age of 5. Her talent was supported by her family who had not had musicians before. Soon after she was admitted to the School for Exceptional Young Talents at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, in the class of Zsuzsa Esztó. She continued her studies with László Baranyay, Rita Wagner and Márta Gulyás at the same institute and attained her Bachelors degree with highest honours. She moved to London to study with Pascal Nemirovski at the Royal Academy of Music where she graduated with her Masters degree. In 2018 she received her Advanced Postgraduate Diploma at the Birmingham Conservatoire. She won first prize in a number of international piano competitions, including Zlatko Grgosevic in Croatia, Cittá di Gorizia in Italy, Smetana in the Czech Republic. She was the winner of the inaugural Talent Support Competition at Liszt Academy in Budapest.
