Andor Földes (1913 - 1992)

Andor Foldes was educated at home and first learnt piano from Tibor Szatmari. At the age of eight he made his debut in public playing Mozart’s Piano Concerto in B flat K. 450 with the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra, and at nine he entered the Liszt Academy where he studied piano with Ernő Dohnányi, composition with Leo Weiner and conducting with Ernst Unger. Upon graduation, at the age of nineteen, he won the Liszt Prize, awarded by a jury that included Alfred Cortot, Emil von Sauer and Sir Donald Tovey. During the year of his debut in Vienna, Foldes met Béla Bartók and both the composer and his music had a great effect on the young pianist. He studied all of Bartók’s compositions with the composer until Bartók’s death in 1945. Foldes introduced the Piano Concerto No. 2 to American audiences in 1940, in Buenos Aires and Johannesburg in 1953 and Tokyo in 1959.
