HavasiBalázs Havasi is a Hungarian pianist and composer. As a contemporary composer he has launched four completely different musical projects, including compositions for a symphony orchestra, rock drums and piano. Havasi wrote a song for singer Tracey Thorn and gave a speech at the TED Global conference about his efforts in musical innovation. He is known for his fondness of Asian culture and martial arts, which he practiced for years. Havasi’s works became known to millions within a short time.At his concert held in Dubai in May 2008, Havasi met communication expert and musical producer Csaba Marjai. The ambitious couple decided to try to create the first widely known global success of Hungarian music, drawing on previous successes but also applying new ideas and solutions. After more than one year of concentrated work, the Havasi Symphonic Production made its debut in the Grand Hall of the Hungarian Academy of Music on 26 November 2009. The production featured nearly 100 artists, Dohnányi Symphony Orchestra and Budapest Academic Choir Society, together with almost 20 soloists of world music for a really impressive performance. At the premiere Havasi hit the same piano key 498 times, which was immediately authenticated on stage by a representative of the Guinness World Records Board, and was awarded the title The Fastest Pianist Of The World. The Havasi Symphonic Production soon became one of the most successful musical productions in Central Eastern Europe, selling 7 platinum records within a year and catapulting Balázs Havasi, the composer of the production, into the group of successful contemporary symphonic composers of these days. The Association of Hungarian Record Companies nominated the Havasi Symphonic album to the award `Domestic Contemporary Classical Music Album of the Year`.
