Peter Frankl (b1935)

Peter Frankl began his study of the piano at the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest with Ernö Szegedi and Lajos Hernadi. Later during his education his teachers included Leo Weiner, Zoltán Kodály, Szabolcsi and Antal Molnár. While still a student, at the age of fifteen, Frankl made his concert debut in Budapest. Seven years later he won first prize at the Marguerite Long–Jacques Thibaud Competition in Paris and later in the same year won first prize at the Munich Sonata Competition with violinist György Pauk. It was his winning of the Rio de Janeiro Prize at in 1959 that launched Frankl’s international career.

At his London debut in May 1962 Frankl played a Handel suite, a Mozart sonata and Schumann’s Études Symphoniques whilst the second half of his recital consisted of Debussy and Bartók. The critic of The Times had nothing but praise, ending his review with a glowing summation: ‘All in all, it was an exceptional recital which makes it certain that we shall hear more of this highly gifted pianist.’ Frankl returned to the Wigmore Hall in October with a programme of Haydn, Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin and Debussy. Another excellent review stated: ‘He would seem to be one of those natural masters of the keyboard who can encompass everything without any apparent effort…’ Frankl decided upon staying in London and has lived there since 1962.
