Nicolas Horvath


Considered to be an out-of-the-ordinary artist with an unconventional résumé, Nicolas Horvath began his music
studies at the Académie de Musique Prince Rainier III de Monaco. At 16, Lawrence Foster took notice of him in
a concert and, securing a three year scholarship for him from the Princess Grace Foundation, was able to invite
him to the Aspen Music Festival. With a degree from the École Normale de Musique in Paris, he worked for
three years with Bruno-Léonardo Gelber, Gérard Frémy who instilled in him a sensitivity to music of our time
and Oxana Yablonskaya.
Leslie Howard got to know him and invited him to perform before the Liszt Society in the United Kingdom,
dedicating to him his 23rd Etude in Black & White. Thanks to Leslie Howard, Nicolas was able to deepen and
supplement his knowledge of the works of Franz Liszt. Following his premiere of the piano solo version of 600
Lines, he met Philip Glass, who suggested transcribing his symphonic works for piano (Duvagen edition). A
contemporary music enthusiast, he works for Alvin Curran, Denis Levaillant, Jeroen van Veen, Kazuo Missé,
Thérèse Brenet, Frederick Martin…
He performs as soloist with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo, the Palm Beach Symphony
Orchestra, the Nice Ensemble Instrumental and in festivals such as the Palm Beach Atlantic Piano Festival,
Gabala Piano Festival, ‘Alterminimalismes’ cycle, BSI Monte Carlo Music Master.
Winner of international competitions, he was awarded 4th Prize and Special Franz Liszt Prize at the Yokohama
International Competition which takes place in the famous Minato Mirai Hall; 2nd Prize at Fukuoka which
enabled him to participate in the Nishin-Nihon Debut Recital Series; First Prize in the American Protégé which
opened the doors for him to Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall.
