György Sebők (1922-1999) was a Hungarian-born American pianist who was also renowned as a teacher and for giving masterclasses. He made over 16 recordings for the Erato label as a soloist, early in his career. He received many honours and awards throughout his life in recognition of musical life. “One of the greatest pianists in the second half of the century, if not the greatest,” in the view of a fellow Hungarian, his fellow pianist Lívia Rév. Cellist János Starker, with whom Sebők played for 60 years, pulled ever fewer punches: “First-hand, second-hand or in recordings, György Sebok is the greatest pianist who ever lived,” and also “one of the greatest teachers of all time.”

Recorded 16 June 1991, Grange de Meslay Festival, Parçay-Meslay, France
