The highest altitude grand piano performance is 5,325.77 m (17,473 ft) and was achieved by Thurzó Zoltán (Romania), at the Mount Everest South Base Camp, Nepal, on 13 June 2022.
Thurzó grew up in a family of musicians, taking up piano at aged 5, so music as always been a key aspect of his life.
Now, as an experienced concert pianist, Thurzó knew he wanted to take on a challenge that combined his love of playing the piano with his passion for hiking and the outdoors.
"[The] challenge combined to me the two things I love the most: music and nature. I found it exciting that my musical profile as a classical music pianist is just as important component on this commitment as my love of nature".
