Pianist Dénes Várjon’s sensational technique, deep musicality, and wide range of interests have made him one of the most exciting and highly regarded participants in international musical life. He is a universal musician: excellent soloist, first-class chamber musician, artistic leader of festivals, and highly sought-after piano pedagogue. He appears regularly at leading international festivals, from Marlboro to Salzburg and Edinburgh.

“Dénes Várjon displays that most valuable of gifts: the ability to play in a way which makes you listen anew to the familiar.”
–The Independent
“Várjon … is a pianist who can bend a phrase so slightly that one barely notices the nuance but still registers its effect; the clarity of his articulation and balancing of the piano’s voices is second to none; he is not afraid to take risks, but one is assured of his consummate control at all times.”
–MusicWeb International
