Anna Falvai, the remarkably talented daughter of Hungarian pianists Sandor Falvai and Gyongyi Kevehazi, was 18 when she won the Sari Biro Memorial Prize in 2002.

Falvai began her piano studies at the age of six. She was accepted in the Preparatory Class of Extraordinarily Talented Children at the Franz Liszt Academy (University) of Music in 1996. Her teachers were Gabor Eckhardt and Balazs Szokolay. In 2001, she performed the Haydn D Major Concerto in the Vigado Concert Hall in Budapest with the University orchestra conducted by Sandor Devich. Between 2003-2007, she continued her studies at the University with Balazs Szokolay and Attila Nemethy. In 2006, she won an Erasmus scholarship to study for two semesters with Imre Rohmann at the Mozarteum University of Music in Salzburg.

Falvai twice won First Prize in the Budapest Piano Competition, and also won First Prize in the National Piano Competition in Nyiregyhaza, Hungary. She has attended several Master Classes given by Zoltan Kocsis, Malcolm Bilson, Peter Frankl, Marta Gulyas, and other well-known pianists and pedagogues. She has also performed in Austria, Italy, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, and Canada. In 2008, she performed the Grieg A minor Concerto at the Klebersberg Cultural Center in Szeged, Hungary with the Gyorgy Solti Orchestra, Gabor Horvath conducting.

In the spring of 2011, Falvai will perform in a “Falvai Family” all-Liszt concert at the Regi Akademie now the Franz Liszt Memorial Museum in Budapest. She will be joined by her parents and her sister Katalin. Currently, Falvai is studying for her doctorate at the Franz Liszt University. The topic of her dissertation is the 20th Century Hungarian pianist Mihaly Bacher, and her consultants are Marta Gulyas and Imre Rohmann.
