Hungary’s Got Talent – The World’s Most Successful Cellist And Third Busiest Pianist Are Hungarians

Robert Velkey 2017.01.11.

It is hard to be objective in the topic of the music as it is a subjective thing, one that depends on personal pleasure. In spite of this, a classical music website, published its 2016 classical music statistics. Last year they listed over 32,000 performances of classical concerts, opera and dance across the globe, so we can say their statistics are the truest reflection of the international scene possible.


On the mentioned collection, Hungarians artist and performers get ranked in a very impressive places. The world’s “most wanted” and most employed cellist was the Hungarian István Váradi in 2016. The young, 32-year-old musician plays on a Stradivari-cello that he got from one of his German art patrons. In addition to his incredible concerts , he teaches at the Music Academy of Kronberg.

Mr Dénes Várjon, a 48-years-old pianist, teaches at the Hungarian Music Academy. He is a regular performer at the Salzburg Festival, the Biannálé of Venice and Marlboro Festival, etc. He used to play with orchestras as a soloist, and is a very famous camerista too.
