Gergely Bogányi was born in 1974 in the city of Vác, where he started his piano studies at the age of four before eventually continuing his education at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music, Helsinki's Sibelius Academy and, finally, at Indiana University Bloomington. He won awards at numerous music competitions, taking top honours at the 1996 Franz Liszt International Piano Competition in Budapest.
His repertoire includes over 30 piano concertos and a significant portion of the piano literature, including all of Chopin's solo piano compositions. In 2002, in a series of recitals in Finland and Hungary, he performed Liszt's 12 Transcendental Études and all of Chopin's solo piano pieces, winning the Gramofon Award for the year's best concert series. In 2000, he was awarded the Liszt Prize, and the President of Finland awarded him the Grand Cross of the White Rose of Finland in 2002. In 2003, ...the Pest County Committee unanimously rewarded him for 'Services to the Culture of Pest County'; and Ferenc Mádl, then President of the Hungarian Republic, presented him with the Kossuth Prize in 2004. In 1996, he was named a Citizen of Honour of his home town of Vác, and also of Zebegény in 2007. In 2008, he was recognised with the Junior Prima Award, and in 2011 with the Prima Award.
