Adamís passion for music and performance has been celebrated around the world. On June 10th, Adam returned to New New York for a private performance at the exclusive Steinway Hall venue.

Adamís extraordinary musical talents were realized at an early age. At merely 12 years old, he was accepted to the prestigious Bela Bartok Conservatory where he flourished under the tutelage of piano teacher Katalin Halmagyi, who continues to be his mentor and a key member of his creative team. In 1998, Adam won the National Youth Piano Competition and two years later he won Hungaryís Pianist 2000 Award at only age 18. He was accepted at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest in 2000 and studied under Professors Gyorgy Nador and Balazs Reti. He graduated in 2006 and is currently doing his doctoral studies at the Liszt Academy.

In 2002, Adam won the Vienna Classics Prize (Wiener-Klassik-Preis) with his outstanding interpretation of Haydnís Sonata in G major (No. 54). In 2003, he won the Special Prize at the San Remo International Piano Competition, and, in 2004, he won all prizes (First Prize, Grand Prize and Special Prize) at the First International Chopin Piano Competition in Budapest. That same year, CNN World Report identified Adam as a ďrising starĒ in the world of classical music. In 2005, Adam was invited to join the Steinway community, a signal honor that places him in the company of the greatest pianists of all time. In November 2008, Adamís critical acclaim earned him his debut at New Yorkís famed Carnegie Hall, where he played to a full house and received a standing ovation.

Adam continues to tour the world, delighted audiences in Europe and Southeast Asia with his grace, virtuosity and charm, as well as his improvisations of well-known melodies.

In August 2009, Adam launched the Adam Gyorgy Castle Academy in Pomaz, Hungary as a 2-week master class academy that builds on the great Hungarian piano school and tradition while connecting music lovers from around the world. Adam donated all of the proceeds from this event to the Academy.

Program included Adamís improvisations and works by Liszt and Chopin.
