Budapest Festival Orchestra/Iván Fischer at Lincoln Center – Dénes Várjon plays Beethoven
BEETHOVEN PIANO CONCERT N. 3 WITH BUDAPEST FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA AND IVÁN FISCHER. LINCOLN CENTER, NEW YORK
Dénes Várjon’s masterful technique and interpretative sensibilities merged perfectly in an outstanding performance of Beethoven’s C-minor Piano Concerto. In the first movement he combined vigorous assertiveness and subtle expressivity to bring urgency and intensity.
