The Washington Post wrote of Dénes Várjon's “immaculate technique” and “tangible sense of character in virtually everything he played.” The pianist performs an eclectic program that includes Schumann’s impassioned Fantasy in C Major, poetic works by Chopin, and selections from Janáček’s On the Overgrown Path. Janáček’s collection is inspired by incidents from his boyhood, as well as the childhood and death of his daughter. Nostalgia permeates much of this subtly shaded and deeply poignant music.

“It’s hard to think of an orchestra that can stir greater thrills than the Budapest Festival Orchestra under Iván Fischer,” wrote the New York Classical Review. Romanticism dominates the first part of the concert with Weber’s overture to his supernatural opera Der Freischütz and virtuoso pianist Marc-André Hamelin testing his mettle in Liszt’s technically daunting Piano Concerto No. 1. One of the great 20th-century symphonies, Prokofiev’s brilliantly scored, melodic, and emotionally compelling Symphony No. 5 concludes the program.
