Album Description:

SCHUBERT: PIANO WORKS FOR FOUR HANDS is a 1992 album by Hungarian classical pianists Jeno Jando & Iiona Prunyi.

JENO JANDO (born February 1, 1952) is a Professor of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Hungary. He studied piano at the Liszt Academy with Katalin Nemes and Pál Kadosa, later going on to win many major international piano competitions, including the Georges Cziffra and Ciani Piano Competitions. However, his professional career began when he took third prize at the Beethoven Piano Competition at the age of 18. He was also the winner of the 1973 Hungarian Piano Concours and took first prize in the chamber music category at the Sydney International Piano Competition in 1977. Jando enjoys being both a solo and accompanying artist, as shown by his recordings, ranging from a complete recording of the Beethoven sonatas to Schubert''s "Trout" Quintet and Beethoven''s "Ghost" and "Archduke" piano trios. As an accompanist, Jeno Jando has worked with Takako Nishizaki in recordings of the Franck and Grieg violin sonatas, the complete Schubert sonatas, and the Mozart sonatas. His style of accompaniment also shows itself in Kodaly''s Sonata for Cello and Piano as well as in a more recent recording of Dohnanyi cello sonatas, in partnership with Maria Kliegel. He is known for singing while playing, and to stop this, he puts an unlit cigarette in his mouth. He has recorded over 60 albums including music by Bach, Beethoven, Liszt, Schumann, Schubert, Brahms, Haydn, Bartók, Chopin and many other composers. He currently records exclusively for Naxos Records.

ILONA PRUNYI (born May 1, 1952) began playing the piano at the age of 6. Between 1958 and 1963, she attended the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. Her teachers were Jozsef Gat and Andras Mihaly. While still a student of the Academy, she participated in the International Liszt-Bartók Competition in 1961, and was awarded a diploma of merit. In 1964, she graduated as a pianist and began teaching at the Academy of Music, where now she is a senior lecturer. Due to an illness, she was not able to start performing until ten years later, in 1974, when she delivered her first concert. Since then, she has been regularly performing, both as a solo player and at orchestra concerts in Budapest and other Hungarian towns. Besides European countries (e.g. England, Germany, Austria, France, Czechoslovakia, Romania) she has also given concerts in Canada and China. She frequently performs as a chamber musician. During the last years, she has often played the works of contemporary Hungarian composers. The Hungarian Radio and Television often hire her as a pianist. As a grant-holding guest, she has participated in several of Yvonne Lefebures piano courses in Paris. Since 1988, she has been working on a regular basis for the Hong-Kong based HNH International Limited, in most cases as the first performer of unknown works. So far she has had 26 records published abroad and a further 8 in Hungary by Hungaroton. She gives several recitals every year in Budapest and in the country. Having a broad repertoire, she plays not only wiener classics and romantic works but French and Russian music of the beginning of the 20th century. In the last years she also performs the works of Hungarian contemporary composers.( Emil Petrovics, József Sári, István Láng, Máté Hollós) She collected her best solo program from 150 years old unknown piano pieces of the Hungarian romanticism of the 19th century from the age of Liszt. (Ábrányi, Bertha, Beliczay, Mosonyi, Goldmark, Volkmann, Sipos, Gaál, etc) Her permanent partners being Zoltán Kocsis, Jeno Jandó, Miklós Perényi, Dénes Gulyás, László Polgár, Csaba Onczay, Etelka Csavlek, Tátrai Qvartet, New Budapest Quartet, András Kiss, Eszter Perényi, Anatolij Fokanov.
