Edward Kilenyi was born in Philadelphia, PA. on May 7, 1910. By the age of four, Kilenyi was already displaying notable pianistic talents and soon travelled to Europe for more intensive instruction. He enrolled at the Franz Liszt Royal Hungarian Conservatory of Music at Budapest around 1922 and graduated in 1930. His principal teacher there was Ernst von Dohnanyi. Kilenyi's professional career began with a performance in Amsterdam with the Concertgebouw Orchestra in 1929. He made his debut in England in 1935 and then in the United States in 1940. Kilenyi proceeded to perform on several continents and made more than one hundred recordings (for Pathe, Columbia, and Remington) during his lifetime. Kilenyi went on to be a Professor of Music at Florida State University. He died on January 6, 2000.
