Pianist Zoltán Fejérvári Brings A Hint Of Wilderness To Gilmore Series


Zoltán Fejérvári says he was drawn to improvising and games at the piano as a child. It provided a playground for the young boy, whose parents were serious orchestral musicians. On Sunday, Nov 4 at 4:00 pm in the Wellspring Theater of the Epic Center, Fejérvári will perform pieces that invite us to use our imaginations: Robert Schumann's Forest Scenes, Bartok's Out of Doors, Janacek's In The Mist, and the Sonata, D 894 by Franz Schubert, in a concert presented by the Gilmore Keyboard Festival.

From the Gilmore Keyboard Festival website:

Winner of the 2017 Concours Musical International de Montréal for piano and recipient of a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, Zoltán Fejérvári has appeared in recitals throughout Europe and the United States. Fejérvári participated in the Marlboro Music Festival from 2014-2016 at the invitation of Mitsuko Uchida. He was also chosen by András Schiff for his “Building Bridges” series created to highlight young pianists of unusual promise.
