Biography

Jenő Jandó
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Jenő Jandó (born 1952 in Pécs) is a Hungarian pianist.

He studied piano at the Liszt Academy with Katalin Nemes and Pál Kadosa, later going on to win many major international piano competitions, including the Cziffra and Ciani Piano Competitions. However, his professional career really began when he took third prize at the Beethoven Piano Competition at the age of 18. He was also the winner of the 1973 Hungarian Piano Concours and took first prize in the chamber music category at the Sydney International Piano Competition in 1977.

Jandó enjoys being both a solo and accompanying artist, as shown by his recordings, ranging from a complete recording of the Beethoven sonatas to Schubert’s ‘Trout’ Quintet and Beethoven’s ‘Ghost’ and ‘Archduke’ piano trios.

As an accompanist, Jenő Jandó has worked with Takako Nishizaki in recordings of the Franck and Grieg violin sonatas, the complete Schubert sonatas, and the Mozart sonatas. His special style of accompaniment also shows itself in Kodály’s Sonata for Cello and Piano as well as in a more recent recording of Dohnányi cello sonatas, in partnership with Maria Kliegel.

He is known for singing while playing and to stop this, he puts an unlit cigarette in his mouth.

He has recorded over 60 albums including music by Bach, Beethoven, Schumann, Schubert, Brahms, Haydn, Bartók, and many other composers. He currently records exclusively for the Naxos label.

    I believe Jenő Jandó is the correct spelling according to Wiki and his Naxos biography. Everyone should enter it in "suggest a correction" so that the variants are redirected.

    There are 3 different spellings of this artist, hence my scrobbles are scattered pointlessly. Why not merge them via autocorrect? [2]
