During his university studies, Janos Palur won the 1st prize of the Flor Peeters competition in Mechelen and the 1st prize of the first Zoltán Gárdonyi Memorial Competition in Budapest. From 1995 he studied organ with Olivier Latry in the Perfectionnement class of the Conservatory of Paris (CNSM). During these two years he was regularly given organ classes in the Notre Dame. In 1997 he won the Grand Prix of Paris of the second International Organ Competition. Following that he has been invited to perform in the concert series of the greatest French cathedrals.
Since that same year he has been titular organist of the Fasor Reformed Church in Budapest and in 1998 was appointed by competition organ teacher at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music. He is the first in Hungary to record Schumann and Duruflé’s complete organ works and his improvisation recordings are also remarkable. His concerts were broadcast live by the Hungarian, French and Slovakian radio. The organ reconstruction of the Fasor Reformed church proceeds according to his plans.
