Balázs’ passion for the piano, his efforts to reach beyond the limits of musical genres, and his gift for improvisation have brought him a brilliant reputation; this pervades his concerts, which inspire critics and audiences alike. He draws his inspiration from two legendary musicians: Franz Liszt and Georges Cziffra, famous pianists who also helped him in his career as a pianist.
