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 Liszt Academy, 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 1999, the Bogányi-Kelemen Trio (Barnabás Kelemen - violin, Tibor Bogányi - cello, Gergely Bogányi - piano) came first in the international trio competition held in Kuhmo, Finland. In 2000, he was presented with the Liszt Award. In 2002, in a series of recitals in Finland and Hungary, he performed Liszt's 12 Transcendental Études and all of Chopi...n's solo piano pieces, winning the Gramofon Award for the year's best concert series. In that same year, the President of Finland awarded him the Grand Cross of the White Rose of Finland in 2002. In 2003, the Pest County Committee unanimously decorated him for 'Service to the Culture of Pest County', and Ferenc Mádl, then President of the Republic of Hungary, 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. He was recognised with the Junior Prima Award in 2008 and the Prima Award in 2011.
