Luka Okros has established himself as one of the most promising pianists of his generation. Okros’s performances have been praised by critics as “intense, strong and natural, with an impressive creativity”. Lang Lang said about his performance of Liszt’s infamous Hungarian Rhapsody: “In such a technical work, he does not deprive musicality. This is a rarity!”.

 

By the age of 27, Luka has won many awards, including Piano Award by Tabor Foundation at the Verbier Festival, top prizes at the Hong Kong Inter­national Piano Competition, the Valencia Iturbi Prize International Competition and the Scottish Inter­national Piano Competition. 

 

Luka has already performed in some of the world’s greatest concert halls – Carnegie Hall, Het Concertgebouw, Wigmore Hall, Rudolfinum, Palau de la Musica Valencia, Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory, Liszt Academy, Maison de la Radio. Highlights of the season include performances in Finland, Hungary, Belgium, USA, Norway, UK, China, Georgia, Ukraine, Morocco and Austria. 

 

His first commercial recording of Schumann was recently released on the DiscAuverS label and is available on Amazon, Spotify and Apple Music. 

 

In addition to his career as a concert pianist, Luka works on creating an album of his own compositions. One of the pieces was filmed and premiered by Het Concertgebouw’s Sessions. Scores of his works are published by Master Music Publications.

 

After graduating from the London Royal College of Music and the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory, the Art Council of England has granted him the Exceptional Talent Visa. Currently Luka is based in London.
