Dénes Várjon, piano


A onetime protégé of Sir András Schiff and Alfred Brendel and a regular collaborator of the likes of Joshua Bell and Steven Isserlis, Hungarian pianist Dénes Várjon boasts prodigious technique and a balance of inventiveness and sensitivity in his interpretations of both standard and lesser-known repertoire. The New York Times praised his 2016 New York debut performance at Zankel Hall as “elegant, passionate, and always technically impressive, his compelling artistry superior to some of the starrier pianists who perform regularly on the main stage of Carnegie Hall.” His program includes selections by Beethoven, Brahsm, Kurtág, and Schumann.

“Aside from the immaculate technique and deft sense of phrasing, Várjon brought something far more rare—a tangible sense of character in virtually everything he played.” – (The Washington Post)
