A native of Budapest, László Fassang was born into a musical family and began to study the organ at the age of 13 under the tutelage of István Baróti. He graduated from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in 1998, having studied piano under Ilona Prunyi and organ with István Ruppert. Mr. Fassang then entered the Paris Conservatory, where he studied organ with Olivier Latry and Michel Bouvard, as well as improvisation under Loic Mallié, Philippe Lefebvre, Thierry Escaich and Jean-Francois Zygel. In 2000, Fassang took a sabbatical year to become resident organist at the Sapporo Concert Hall (Japan). During that time he performed several concerts in Japan, and recorded a CD on the Kern organ at Sapporo Concert Hall, which included works by Bach and Liszt as well as his own improvisations.
