Peter Bence comes from Hungary and became famous mainly thanks to his technically demanding arrangements of popular songs, which he mainly shares on YouTube. Bence is not only a talented pianist, but also an excellent composer who combines classical music with modern genres.
At the age of two, Peter could already play songs from his favorite fairy tales on the piano. He then showed his talent again at the age of seven, when he composed his first composition. At the age of eleven, he released his first album, which was heavily influenced by Frédéric Chopin and Robert Schumann. He dedicated his life to music even during his studies. He first studied classical piano and composition at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music, then decided to continue at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston.
In 2015, his interpretation of Michael Jackson’s song Bad became an internet hit, with over ten million views in a few days. Thanks to this, he became famous all over the world. In 2012, he was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest pianist in the world, playing at 765 keys per minute.
