"...it is hardly necessary to waste many words about András Adorján in Munich: his supreme and natural musicality, with which he performed both Mozart Concertos, is hardly possible to surpass..."
András Adorján was born in Budapest, grew up in Copenhagen and lives since 1974 in Munich. He first studied dentistry, obtaining his dentist's diploma in Copenhagen in 1968. He completed his musical studies under the auspieces of Aurèle Nicolet and Jean-Pierre Rampal.
After winning two international prizes in 1968: in Copenhagen "Jacob Gade Prize" and in Montreux the "Concours International de Flûte", András Adorján was unanimously awarded the "Premier Grand Prix" of the "Concours International de Flûte de Paris" in 1971. This was the beginning of an international career which has led him to appear worldwide as soloist with the best chamber and symphony orchestras.
Between 1970 and 1987 his activities included the position of principal flautist of important symphony orchestras in Stockholm, Cologne, Baden-Baden and Munich. 1987 he was appointed professor at the Musikhochschule in Cologne and since 1996 he is teaching at the Musikhochschule in Munich.
András Adorján is a welcome guest at many music festivals and he is very active in widening the flute literature by playing many by him (re)discovered pieces as well as compositions by contemporary composers inspired by and written for him.
More than 100 records and CDs (1988 Prize of the Deutsche Schallplattenkritik) testify to the eminent artistry of András Adorján
