This 30-year-old Hungarian cellist was recognized as “exceptionally gifted” as early as age 12 when he entered the Franz Liszt Conservatory, and subsequently proceeded to win almost every cello competition in sight. As an adult musician, István Várdai has been described as “a special kind of genius… with perfect intonation, ample interpretation, impeccable tempo – in short, he is an incredible virtuoso.”
French pianist Julien Quentin has established himself as a versatile and sensitive musician, exhibiting great maturity and poise. His remarkable depth of musicianship and distinct clarity of sound, coupled with flawless technique, make him an artist in demand as both soloist and chamber musician. Now residing in Berlin, he also collaborates on a wide range of projects, from improvisation to producing electronic music.
