About Ariel Lanyi

In March 2023, Ariel was honored to receive the Prix Serdang, a Swiss prize awarded by the distinguished Austrian pianist Rudolf Buchbinder. The prize is endowed with CHF 50,000 and is not a competition, but a recognition of a young pianist’s achievements and an investment in their future.

Prior to this Ariel won 3rd prize at the 2021 Leeds International Piano Competition, performing Brahms Concerto No. 2 with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Andrew Manze in the Finals. He was a prize winner in the inaugural Young Classical Artists Trust (London) and Concert Artists Guild (New York) International Auditions, also in 2021.

Highlights this season include returns to the Wigmore Hall, Vancouver Recital Society, Miami International Piano Festival and Nottingham International Piano Series, as well his debuts with the Frankfurt Alter Oper as part of their debut concert series and at Merkin Hall in New York.

On the concerto platform Ariel has appeared with various orchestras, including the Israel Philharmonic, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Sinfonia Viva and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the latter of which he will return to this season for a performance of Mozart’s Piano Concerto in C Major, K. 503.

Future notable engagements include his debut with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra at the Grafenegg Festival, and a tour to China.
