His sensational technique, deep musicality, and wide ranging interests have made Dénes Várjon one of the most exciting and highly regarded artists on the international musical scene. In recital and as soloist with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, the New York Times has hailed him as one of today's most illuminating artists ‐ “his compelling artistry (is) superior to some of the starrier pianists who perform regularly on the main stage of Carnegie Hall." His music making is truly a special experience, which is why he is a regular guest of the world's major music centers and with such orchestras as the Budapest Festival Orchestra, Tonhalle, Berlin Radio, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Russian National Orchestra and Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.
