“Were every young pianist as intensely musical, intellectually probative, fastidiously prepared and well focused as Ariel Lanyi, the world of classical music would be in deep trouble. Fortunately for the savvy listener, Mr. Lanyi’s authority, which belies his age, takes no prisoners as he expertly leads us on a no-nonsense artistic journey as satisfying as it is substantive. There is nothing in the least superficial about Mr. Lanyi’s always thoughtful music making, which speaks volumes for the artist he is and continues to blossom into. He brings to his wide repertoire a remarkable seriousness of purpose that demonstrates uncommonly astute judgment and maturity, qualities that will serve him well for the long and prosperous career that certainly awaits him.”
