“He touches the keys with more sensitivity than the people who can see. I believe that some dynamic ranges in his play have a sensitivity that is simply not possible for us. I would say that perhaps this skill can be measured by Chopinian standards.”
Zoltán Kocsis – Parlando (2010)
A better recommendation than that of Zoltán Kocsis would be hard to find for the Chopin concert of the Liszt Prize-winning artist. The audience of Óbudai Társaskör is privileged to hear this program sooner than the audience of Łazienki Park in Warsaw. In this park stands the famous Chopin statue, under which the audience of 4000 can enjoy the pianist's play on 23 June. Tamás Érdi was invited for the fourth time to one of the outdoor concerts traditionally held from spring to autumn. This is a real honor for him since as we know "even the birds sing Chopin for him" as the title of the book written by his mother Márta É. Szabó declares. The May concert of the series entitled "Black and White" is a worthy conclusion to the four-concert piano cycle.
