“His virtuosity at the cello defied belief, and left the audience rubbing its eyes and shaking its heads in wonder. Difficulties were not overcome, they were atomized…” — The Spokesman, 2019
Hungarian cellist István Várdai is the only cellist in the world to have won both the International Cello Competition in Geneva (2008) and the ARD Competition in Munich (2014), the two most important contests for cellists. In 2000 he was elected best rising classical musician in the world by Prix Montblanc. On January he will be sharing his unique insight on music and life with a selection of the VSO School of Music’s most advanced chamber music ensembles in front of an audience.
