László Gyimesi held professorships at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Stuttgart and at the Musik-Akademie Basel for over three decades. He has given master classes in the USA, Japan, Spain, France and Hungary and was a jury member at several piano and chamber music competitions.
He has given solo recitals in USA, Canada, Japan, Cuba and most European countries. Orchestras with whom he performed as soloist include Sinfonieorchester
Basel, Budapest Symphony Orchestra, RIAS Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, Tonhalle Orchester Zürich and Philharmonia Hungarica. He won prizes at international piano competitions such as the Liszt-Bartók Competition in Budapest, the Leeds International Piano Competition and the José
Iturbi International Piano Competition in Valencia.
Upon finishing his studies with Peter Solymos at the Liszt Academy in Budapest he was awarded Grand Prix and went on to study with Géza Anda in Zurich, György Sebők in Bloomington, Indiana and Stefan Askenase in Bonn. In the course of his teaching activities he has developed many exercises inspired by
Johannes Brahms, Alfred Cortot , Ernő Dohnányi and Heinrich Neuhaus. They serve not only the improvement of fundamental practical skills but of a musical understanding of piano playing in which musical and technical aspects are inseparably intertwined.
