Dezső Ránki graduated from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in 1973 after studying under Pál Kadosa and Ferenc Rados. He was 18 years old when he won the International Schumann Competition in Zwickau, and he has been performing concerts all over the world ever since. He has played with such ensembles as the Berlin and London philharmonics, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Orchestre National de France in Paris under the batons of such conductors as Georg Solti, Sándor Végh, Lorin Maazel and Zubin Mehta. Since 1985, he has been playing works for four hands and two pianos at concerts together with Edit Klukon; in recent years the two have appeared in Berlin, Paris, Tokyo, New York and London.
