About István Várdai, solo cello

Gifted Hungarian cellist István Várdai presents a solo recital of Bach’s Cello Suite No. 3, followed by the spectacular Solo Cello Sonata by compatriot Zoltán Kodály. Mastering an “oaky complexity” of tone (Washington Post), Várdai plays the oldest surviving Stradivarius cello, the 1673 “Ex du Pré-Harrell,” almost as remarkable as the artist himself.

The Program

Bach: Suite No. 3 in C major

Kodály: Sonata for solo cello

Run Time

1hr (No Intermission)

His performance was a knockout punch. . . with deeply-layered musical integrity and innovation, [the work] allowed the cello’s capacity to shine and for Várdai to flex his considerable musical muscle with great dynamism.
