Audiences and critics alike rate László Fenyő as one of the most exciting and intense musicians of our day. He has officially been a member of the world cellist elite since his victory at the International Pablo Casals Cello Competition in Kronberg. His chamber partner, the Armenian Marianna Shirinyan, similarly occupies a place in the vanguard of music; she drew attention to herself with no fewer than five prizes at the 2006 Munich ARD competition, since when she has been a regular guest at the biggest festivals and classical music venues. The opening piece to the Fenyő and Shirinyan chamber recital is Beethoven’s spellbinding variations revealing the most varied of moods, and which the master composed at the age of 31 to a theme from Mozart’s Magic Flute. “Splendid, fresh and passionate.” This was the judgement of Clara Wieck about the Adagio and Allegro, which even Schumann admitted he “had had fun with.” Debussy’s late sonata suits Fenyő’s refined technique and nuanced expression, allowing as it does the most varied of strengths of cello playing to be put on display. Rachmaninov’s moving cello-piano sonata is performed by Fenyő and Shirinyan as the emotional highpoint of the recital.
