"Anikó Horváth was born in Győr, Hungary, and prepared for a pianist career ever since her childhood. She graduated as a pianist from the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in 1972; her professor was István Antal. Simultaneously with studying the piano, she started to play the harpsichord with János Sebestyén. She won the second Grand Prix of the Harpsichord Competition of Paris in 1973 but continued studying with Zuzana Ru�ičková. The harpsichord master course of Kenneth Gilbert given in Vleeshuis, Antwerp in 1978 exerted a great influence on her artistic development.
She has appeared as a soloist and member of chamber ensembles in several European countries: Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland and Turkey. She has conducted harpsichord courses in Germany and within the Early Music Days of Sopron for several years.
Anikó Horváth is harpsichord professor at the Liszt Ferenc University of Music, Budapest. In 2001 she took her DLA doctoral degree. Beside giving concerts regularly, she publishes articles in musical journals and gives lectures for professionals. " Visit website for more information. (ed.)
