Matei Varga is already established as one of the leading young artists of his native Romania and his prodigious talent is fast becoming recognized in the United States and Europe. His October 2008 debut performance at Zankel Hall was described by Rorianne Schrade of New York Concert Review as “masterful, [with] tremendous dynamic range [and showing] an exceptional mind at work”, whereas his account of Schumann’s Fantasy op. 17 at the Berlin Konzerthaus in August 2009 was hailed by Wolfgang Schrieber of Süddeutsche Zeitung as “magical”.
