One of Scotland’s leading musicians since settling in Glasgow, Gusztáv Fenyő is well-known for performing single-composer cycles. A descendant of the great Hungarian violinist Joseph Joachim, he first came into prominence when he won the Australian Broadcasting Commission’s annual concerto competition playing Liszt’s E flat Concerto while still a student of the New South Wales Conservatorium of Music in Sydney. He subsequently studied with Schnabel’s disciple, Maria Curcio, and at the Liszt Academy in Budapest, where he gave numerous Hungarian premières of works by Stockhausen, Boulez, Xenakis, Cage and Takemitsu. Following his Wigmore Hall début in 1978, at which he gave the première of György Kurtág’s Games, he has performed a comprehensive repertoire with distinguished conductors, colleagues and orchestras on three continents and broadcast for the BBC, ABC and Hungarian Radio. From 1980 to 1992 he was lecturer in piano at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and has taught at summer courses in the United States, Mexico and Hungary. His commercial recordings include the complete violin and piano works of Bartók and Delius, as well as sonatas by Bantock, Dunhill and Stanford.
