St James's Church, Piccadilly, London
Free admission – no ticket required

  1. Sonata for Piano No 32 in C minor Op 111 - Ludwig van Beethoven
  2. 3 Nocturnes Op 9 - Fryderyk Chopin

Based in the UK since 2015, the pianist, accompanist, répétiteur and chamber musician Domonkos Csabay performs a wide range of classical repertoire. Besides winning several prizes in the last two years, including first prize in the Brant (now renamed as ‘Birmingham’) International Piano Competition, he has also given successful solo recitals at the Lichfield Festival or in important venues such as Birmingham Town Hall or Milton Court, London. He made concerto appearances with the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra, Kew Sinfonia and Oxford Sinfonia. He has been on stage in several important concert venues, such as Symphony Hall, the Elgar Concert Hall, Bradshaw Concert Hall, CBSO Centre, St Philip’s Cathedral and others. He played as pre-concert showcase performer on concerts by the CBSO or Paul Lewis. He made his debut on BBC Radio 3 in 2018, broadcasting the famously virtuosic Eroica Variations by Beethoven.

Meanwhile he never stopped working in all different areas of pianism, he has performed regularly as a chamber musician and song accompanist (e.g. in festivals such as Wye Valley, Leeds Lieder, or Debussy Centenary by CBSO) and collaborated with renowned companies such as Longborough Festival Opera or Abingdon Summer School for Singers, among many others. His versatility is well illustrated by diverse competition successes: prizes as a composer in Romania and as a Lied accompanist in Wales.

Domonkos’s musical world has its roots in the rich traditions of his hometown Budapest, where he was educated at the Liszt Academy, an institute keenly concentrating on chamber music. A former winner of the Leó Weiner Sonata Competition, he is particularly interested in classical and early romantic chamber literature, playing many duos, trios and quartets, including the complete works of Schubert and Brahms for violin and piano. As a Schubert performer, he was selected among only nine pianists and as the only participant not based in Germany, for the semi-finals of the Dortmund Schubert Competition in 2016. He remains active in Hungarian musical life, too. During the 2017/18 season, as an Annie Fischer scholar, he has been taking part in a year-long concert series named after this world-famous pianist.

Having recently finished his piano studies with Pascal Nemirovski and John Thwaites at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Domonkos is currently studying for an Advanced Performance Diploma in répétiteurship, also at RBC, with Paul Wingfield and Robin Bowman.
