The Washington Post wrote of Dénes Várjon’s “immaculate technique” and “tangible sense of character in virtually everything he played.” The pianist performs an eclectic program that includes Schumann’s impassioned Fantasy in C Major, poetic works by Chopin, and selections from Janáček’s On the Overgrown Path. Janáček’s collection is inspired by incidents from his boyhood, as well as the childhood and death of his daughter. Nostalgia permeates much of this subtly shaded and deeply poignant music.
