 – piano solo concert –

An exceptionally gifted pianist, at home in both jazz and classical music. He walked away with the first prize from the solo piano competition at the 2000 Montreux Jazz Festival. In 2005 he was voted best soloist at the Avignon International Jazz Festival. Since then he has established a serious reputation for himself in the world of jazz. Jack DeJohnette, one of the jazz giants he has played with, had this to say: „I believe Robert is one of the best young pianists on the jazz scene today”.
Another one-time musical partner, John Patitucci gave the following opinion on Robert’s playing: „His sound and touch on the piano are highly developed and very lyrical” Apart from DeJohnette and Patitucci, Robert has played with the likes of Reggie Johnson, Palle Danielsson, Jojo Mayer, Erik Truffaz, Randy Brecker, Bill Evans,Rick Margitza, Hiram Bullock, Ravi Coltrane, Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra, Hungarian Radio Symphonic Orchestra – and the list is far from complete.
In Japan, which is the biggest market for jazz today, Robert Lakatos has already recorded seven albums and the eighth is about to be launched with Gregory Hutchinson on the drums. Robert is a member of the Bolla Quartet.
