Edit Klukon studied piano with the guidance of Mariann Teöke, Edit Hambalkó, and then of Pál Kadosa, Jenő Jandó and György Kurtág. She graduated in 1982 at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music. At the age of sixteen she was one of those three young pianists who introduced György Kurtág’s Játékok (Games). Beside her solo concerts she has worked with famous singers (Dénes Gulyás, László Polgár, Lucia Popp) and she has been giving concerts with Dezső Ránki for many decades. She did not just perform in Hungarian concert halls, but also in Paris, Munich, London, Tokio, Washington, Sao Paulo, and at the festivals of Luzern, La Roque d’Anthéron and Lockenhaus.

Together with Dezső Ránki they presented the four-handed version of Liszt’s cycle, Via Crucis in 1986. In 1990 they presented the two-handed version of the Faust Symphony, which hasn’t been published before. Their repertoire includes a significant part of the piano duo literature, like works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Liszt, Debussy, Ravel, Bartók, Erik Satie and Messiaen. The transcription of Ferenc Liszt’s Via Crucis and Erik Satie’s Socrate was released by them in 2005.

In 2016 she got Ferenc Liszt prize.
