Zoltán Fejérvári

Winner of the 2017 Concours Musical International de Montréal for piano and a recipient of a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, Zoltán Fejérvári has appeared in recitals throughout Europe and the United States, in such prestigious venues as Carnegie’s Weill Hall in New York, the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, the Library of Congress in Washington D.C., Gasteig in Munich, Lingotto in Turin, the Palau de Música in Valencia, the Biblioteca Nacional de Buenos Aires, and the Liszt Academy in Budapest. He has performed as a soloist with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, Hungarian National Orchestra, Verbier Festival Orchestra, and Concerto Budapest Orchestra, among others, under such conductors as Iván Fischer, Zoltán Kocsis, Ken-Ichiro Kobayashi, and Gábor Takács-Nagy.

Fejérvári is a passionate chamber musician. He has collaborated with both the Keller and Kodály Quartets and has worked with such musicians as Gary Hoffman, Joseph Lin, Cristoph Richter, András Keller, Radovan Vlatkovic, Ivan Monighetti, Frans Helmerson, and Steven Isserlis. He has been a participant in Kronberg’s “Chamber Music Connects the World” program, Prussia Cove’s “Open Chamber Music,” Lisztomania in Chateauroux, the Tiszadob Piano Festival, and Encuentro de Música in Santander. At the invitation of Mitsuko Uchida, he participated in the Marlboro Music Festival during the summers of 2014 through 2016.

Fejérvári’s recording of Liszt’s Malédiction with the Budapest Chamber Symphony was awarded the “Grand prix du Disque” in 2013. His CD of four Mozart violin sonatas, with violinist Ernő Kállai, was released in 2014 by Hungaroton.

Distinguished pianist András Schiff chose Fejérvári for his “Building Bridges” series created to highlight young pianists of unusual promise. Under this aegis, Fejérvári will give recitals throughout 2017 and 2018 in Berlin, Bochum, Brussels, Zürich, and Ittingen, among other cities.
