Awarded by numerous international organ competitions, Gabor Szotyori Nagy is one of the most recognised organists of his generation in Hungary.
He commenced his studies of organ with István Koloss, Hungarian composer and organist. Continued by László Deák at the Conservatory King St. Stephen and dr. Dezső Karasszon, dr. Szilárd Kovács and dr. Hedvig Jakab during his university years. He graduated as organist and teacher from the Faculty of Music of the University of Debrecen and obtained pianist-teacher diploma at the Faculty of Art of Széchenyi István University.
He has been actively working as organist-church musician since his childhood. Between 2010 and 2018 he was titular organist of the Inner-City Parish Church of Budapest.
Currently he is one of the permanent organists of St. Stephen's Basilica of Budapest.
Gábor performs regularly and has 40-50 concerts a year as a soloist and chamber musician across Hungary and abroad. He performs in Austria, Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Latvia, Denmark, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Poland, Transylvania (Romania) and China.
While his repertoire includes almost all-important pieces of organ works from early baroque to contemporary art, the focus of his work is on the romantic music. At the same time, researching and presenting the musical heritage of István Koloss, his former master plays is a central role in his artistic career.
In the year of 2011, in connection with the Liszt bicentenary, he played complete organ works and transcriptions of Franz Liszt in the frame of a national tour of 13 concerts. In 2020 Gábor played all organ works of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, using this opportunity to prepare a recording.
Also in 2020, on the 10th anniversary of the death of István Koloss, he performed his masters chamber works and major organ works in concert tour of the Carpathian Basin.
Currently his goal to play and record the complete organ works of Cesar Franck.
