A pupil of Ede Zathureczky, György Terebesi is a prominent representative of the great Hungarian violin school. Following studies at the Franz Liszt
Academy, under Ede Zathureczky, Zoltán Kodály and Léo Weiner, he fulfills his training with Line Talluel in Paris. For over twenty years, he is active across Europe, especially as concert master of the Frankfurt Radio Orchestra. As a soloist, he plays under eminent conductors, such as Eliahu Imbal, Milan Horvath, Uri Mayer and Louis Frémeau, and with acclaimed
partners: Paul Badura-Skoda, Henryk Szeryng, Maurice André, Jean-Pierre Rampal. His recording of the complete works for violin and guitar of Paganini, with the guitarist Sonja Prunnbauer-a world-first-is still recognized by critics as the benchmark version.
In 1981, he is appointed professor at the Faculty of Music of Laval University in Quebec City, a position he fills concurrently with his pursuits as soloist. His students greatly benefit from his extensive experience and his unique knowledge of the repertoire, particularly of music of the twentieth century. Prompted by an enduring passion for chamber music, he brings together the Laval Quartet in 1982. This ensemble has performed in Canada and abroad while accumulating a substantial discography. An acknowledged performer of the masterworks, from Bach to Bartók, György Terebesi never misses an occasion of promoting composers and works which deserve to be discovered, or re-discovered.
