Notes & Reviews:

Bach's iconic solo suites form the pinnacle of the entire cello repertoire, the ultimate challenge and a Mount Everest every young and aspiring cellist has to climb, no matter how often that has already been done. Young Hungarian cellis Istvan Vardai is winner of the Geneva Competition, 3rd prize Tchaikovsky Competition 2007 and first prize winner of the prestigious ARD competition in 2014. He embarked on a successful international career, having played with Mikhael Pletnev, Adam Fischer, Zoltan Kocsis, and chamber music partner of Gidon Kremer, Mischa Maisky, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Andras Schiff, Klara Wurtz and many others. He is a regular guest at international music festivals, notably Verbier. His previous recordings have been praised by critics: "superb... he marries a sumptuous and varied tonal palette to a flawless technical address... " (Gramophone)
