“It is rare to hear such jaw-dropping virtuosity placed so modestly and so intuitively at the service of music.” - (Classical Music Review)

Highly regarded internationally as a soloist, chamber musician, artist leader of festivals and teacher, the acclaimed Hungarian pianist Dénes Várjon graduated from the Franz Liszt Music Academy (where he is now a professor) in 1991. He won first prizes at the Piano Competition of Hungarian Radio, the Leó Weiner Chamber Music Competition in Budapest and at the Géza Anda Competition in Zurich.

Sought after as a chamber musician, he works regularly with such renowned partners as Steven Isserlis, Tabea Zimmermann, Kim Kashkashian, András Schiff, Heinz Holliger and Joshua Bell. As a soloist, he is a frequent guest at major concert series, from New York’s Carnegie Hall to Vienna’s Konzerthaus and London’s Wigmore Hall. He also appears regularly at leading international festivals including Salzburg and Edinburgh.

A recording artist with the Naxos, Capriccio and Hungaroton labels, his CDs include solo works by Berg, Janáček and Liszt, and he most recently recorded the Schumann concerto and all five Beethoven piano concertos. A tireless advocate for Hungarian music, he will include in his programme several works by Hungary’s two greatest composers, Liszt and Bartok, as well as Beethoven's Opus 90 Sonata and Schumann's famous Opus 12 Fantasiestücke (Fantasy Pieces).

Programme:
Beethoven: Sonata in E Minor, Opus 90
Schumann: Fantasiestücke, Opus 12
Liszt: Schlaflos! Frage und Antwort
Liszt: Valse oubliée No1
Liszt: The Fountains at the Villa d'Este
Bartók: Improvisations, Opus 20
