It is often said that music knows no boundaries. That music is a universal language. Dénes Várjon is proof that these assertions are accurate. The Kossuth Prize pianist who has headlined top chamber music festivals abroad has played together with the cream of artists coming from countless countries. This concert – where he partners Gringolts Quartet – is also the outcome of friendships evolving over the years. Established in 2008, the Swiss-based string quartet comprise Russian, Romanian, Armenian and German musicians. The programme similarly spans (national and musical) borders because it starts with the String Quartet No. 1 drawing on Hungarian folk music sources by Sándor Veress, who died 30 years ago after spending his final years in Switzerland, it continues with the quartet by Antonín Dvořák, national composer of the Czechs, and reaches its conclusion with a youthful Romantic piece by Bartók.
