BIOGRAPHY

László was born in Budapest in 1989, where he began his musical education. At the age of fifteen he entered the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna, where he pursued preparatory studies with Helge M. Stiegler. He continued his studies with Peter Holtslag at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater, Hamburg and later on at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he graduated with distinction in 2013.

László studied chamber music and historical performance practice with Gerhart Darmstadt and has participated in numerous master classes with Anneke Boeke, Daniel Brüggen, Paul Leenhouts and Han Tol, amongst others. In 2012 he was the recipient of the prestigious AHRC Postgraduate Award.

As a soloist and chamber musician he enjoys a varied freelance career both in the UK and abroad, sharing the platform with distinguished musicians such as Michael Chance, John Butt, and Jan Waterfield, and performing with leading early music ensembles and orchestras including the Dunedin Consort, Spiritato!, Ars Eloquentiae, and Oxford Baroque. László has performed numerous times on BBC Radio 3, and appears on albums published by Veterum Musica, Resonus Classics and Linn Records.

László is passionate about contemporary music; he enjoys collaborating with composers and has premiered several new compositions. Latest projects have included touring and recording with the contemporary music company Sound Affairs (Charlie Barber: Michelangelo Drawing Blood).

László’s utmost aspiration as a musician is to discover the broadest possibilities of his instrument both in early and contemporary music.

Besides performing, he is a keen educator, currently teaching at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the University of Glasgow. He has also taught and led workshops at the Royal Academy of Music and the University of York.

As a result of a growing interest in the research of new concepts and possibilities of interactive and reactive music making, László is currently undertaking a PhD course at the University of Glasgow under the joint supervision of John Butt and David McGuinness which is generously supported by a scholarship from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
