Fejérvári’s playing is multi-layered and precise, requiring full concentration on the part of the audience. Every note has its own particular dynamic, character, and expression.

Zoltán Fejérvári has emerged as one of the most intriguing pianists in a new generation of Hungarian musicians, a virtuoso who has commanded concert stages around the world. Winner of the 2017 Concours Musical International de Montréal and recipient of the prestigious Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship in 2016, Zoltán Fejérvári has appeared in recitals throughout Europe and the United States at Carnegie Hall, the Kimmel Center, the Library of Congress, the Gasteig in Munich, the Lingotto in Turin, the Palau de Música in Valencia, the Biblioteca Nacional de Buenos Aires, and the Liszt Academy in Budapest.

He has performed as a soloist with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, the Hungarian National Orchestra, and the orchestras of Verbier Festival and Concerto Budapest, among others, and has collaborated with such conductors as Iván Fischer, Gábor Takács-Nagy, Ken-Ichiro Kobayashi, and Zoltán Kocsis.

Fejérvári frequently makes apprearances as a chamber musician. He has collaborated with the Keller and Kódaly Quartets, the violinists Joseph Lin and András Keller, cellists such as Gary Hoff man, Cristoph Richter, Ivan Monighetti, Frans Helmerson and Steven Isserlis, and horn player Radovan Vlatkovic. Fejérvári has appeared at Kronberg’s “Chamber Music Connects the World” program, Prussia Cove Open Chamber Music, Lisztomanias de Châteauroux in France, the Tiszadob Piano Festival in Hungary, and Encuentro de Música in Santander, Spain.

At the invitation of artistic director Mitsuko Uchida he participated in the Marlboro Music Festival in the summers of 2014 and 2016. The distinguished pianist András Schiff selected Fejérvári for the “Building Bridges” series, which was established to highlight young pianists of exceptional promise.

Zoltán Fejérvári’s recording of Liszt’s Malédiction with the Budapest Chamber Symphony was awarded the Grand prix du Disque in 2013. The recording was followed by a CD of four sonatas for piano and violin by Mozart with violinist Ernő Kállai.
