A graduate of the world-renowned Franz Liszt Academy of Music, HAVASI’s special talent is the ability to engage directly with his audience. He is one of the rare contemporary composers with the rock star-like charisma that can sell out huge stadium concerts.

The HAVASI Symphonic concert is a musically enthralling and visually spectacular experience. Solo piano, symphony orchestra, instrumental soloists and singers all come together on the same stage to move and entertain the audience in a show that also uses all the very latest sound, staging and lighting technology. Firmly rooted in classical tradition, but weaving in elements of world and popular musics, HAVASI Symphonic takes the audience on an exhilarating musical journey with deeply emotional, yet entertaining music that has something for everyone.

HAVASI Symphonic has been one of the most amazing success stories on the Hungarian musical scene. It is the only concert performance in the country that can regularly fill entire stadiums. In 2014, HAVASI Symphonic played to over 46,000 people over a single weekend at the Papp Laszlo Sports Arena, with four sold out performances, propelling HAVASI Symphonic to the #2 slot on the Billboard Boxscore ranking for ticket sales worldwide – a level of success exceeding even top rock and pop acts. Now HAVASI is bringing his unique vision and passion to the United States.

At the centre of the whole experience is the charismatic personality of HAVASI himself – composer, solo pianist and star of the show. His stage presence and energy hold together this epic unfolding of a musical conception springing completely from his singular artistic imagination.

HAVASI is renewing music written for traditional instruments. His works blend the depth and discipline of classical tradition with the sounds of today to create a music that moves and entertains modern audiences looking for artistic sophistication as well as music with heart.

The Carnegie Hall performance will be the first time that this venerable institution has given a Hungarian composer the opportunity to present an entire concert of his own compositions since the concert given there in 1943 by Béla Bartók.
