Dezso Ranki (b1951)

Deszo Ránki began piano lessons at the age of eight at a special school of the Budapest Academy of Music. At thirteen he enrolled at the Budapest Conservatory where he studied with Klára Máthé. He then went to the Franz Liszt Academy of Music where he studied with Pál Kadosa and Ferenc Rados, graduating with distinction. From the time Ránki won first prize at the International Schumann Competition in Zwickau he has had an international career performing in Europe, Scandinavia, the Soviet Union, the USA and Japan. Early in his career, Ránki deputised for Arthur Rubinstein in Milan and Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli in Menton when both were indisposed. Ránki participates in many music festivals including those at Lucerne, Menton, Paris, Prague, St Moritz, Antibes and Helsinki and in 1975 played the piano part in Leonard Bernstein’s Age of Anxiety at the Carinthian Festival. Ránki also gives frequent duet performances with Zoltán Kocsis and Edit Klukon.

At the age of twenty, Ránki played to an international gathering of impresarios and critics at Hungary’s 1971 Interforum and was immediately offered a date with the Berlin Philharmonic. He has given recitals at London’s Royal Festival Hall and the Kremlin Conservatory in Moscow and performed with many orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, the London Philharmonic and the Concertgebouw with conductors such as Georg Solti, Zubin Mehta and Václav Neumann.
