The training I received at the Academy was difficult and at times harsh, but those who survived the experience emerged as real musicians.

Petra Várallyay – who comes from a musician family of  of seven children, and has won both the Orszáczky and Junior Artisjus Prizes – achieved her first major successes as a classical violinist, while later her interests took her more towards improvized fusion music and composition. Besides playing the violin, she is an excellent pianist, she sings, orchestrates and is a librettist, too. She had already founded her own jazz trio while studying at the Liszt Academy, she is the permanent composer for the Jazzation a cappella formation, she has worked with Bobby McFerrin and Yo-Yo Ma, and made appearances at dozens of festivals in Hungary and abroad in a wide range of genres. Her February concert programme is particularly exciting because in addition to the chamber music pieces and caprices for violin written by herself the recital will mark the world première of her Violin Concerto No. 1. The audience can enjoy the work in a composer’s recital along with a mixed chamber orchestra comprising strings, woodwinds, bass guitar and percussion instruments.
