About Gergely Devich

Gergely Devich was born in Budapest in 1998, into a family of musicians. He started playing the cello when he was only eight years old, and his first teach was Zsuzsanna Antók – six years later, she is still teaching him today! Gergely now attends the Liszt Ferenc Music Arts High School, and is a pupil of László Mező - one of the most famous, and most awarded, Hungarian cellists.

Despite his tender age, Gergely he has already won many prestigious awards and contests not only in Hungary, but also abroad. He has won prizes both as a soloist, and as a member of a cello-quartet and a piano-trio as well. Outside of Hungary, Gergely received second prize at the 2011 international music contest "Talents for Europe", which was held in Dolny Kubin, Slovakia. He also won the international music contest "Salieri" in 2013, held in Legnago in Italy, and has also performed at a number of events all over Hungary, as well as in London, Baden-Baden and Gengenbach.
