Zoltán Fejérvári, piano
Zoltán Fejérvári has emerged as one of the most intriguing pianists among the newest generation of Hungarian musicians. Winner of the 2017 Concours Musical International de Montréal and recipient of the prestigious Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship in 2016, Zoltán Fejérvári has appeared in recitals throughout the Americas and Europe, and as a soloist with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, Hungarian National Orchestra, Verbier Chamber Orchestra, and Concerto Budapest. Fejérvári’s solo recording debut, Janáček, released in January 2019, earned rave reviews as “the most sensitive and deeply probative recording” of that composer’s work (Gramophone). His latest recording, Schumann, was released for the Atma Classique label in May 2020 and he was again praised by Gramophone: “Fejérvári is a deeply communicative artist who combines an imperturbable yet magisterial command of his instrument with impeccable musicality.”
As a chamber musician, Fejérvári performed at the Classical Spree, the festival of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra; contemporary and Baroque concerti at Lucerne Festival, Brooklyn Chamber Music Festival, Gilmore Keyboard Festival Rising Stars series; and Vancouver Recital Society in British Columbia. Fejérvári has collaborated with the Elias Quartet, the Keller, and Kodály Quartets, as well as appearing at Kronberg’s Chamber Music Connects the World program, Prussia Cove’s Open Chamber Music, Lisztomania at Châteauroux, France, the Tiszadob Piano Festival in Hungary, and Encuentro de Música in Santander, Spain. At the invitation of artistic director Mitsuko Uchida, he spent 2 summers participating in the Marlboro Music Festival, and later toured throughout the United States with the Musicians from Marlboro.
