Eniko Magyar stars at Hertfordshire Philharmonia’s St Albans concert
YOUNG Hungarian viola player Eniko Magyar is playing the rarely-heard Bartok Violin Concerto with the Hertfordshire Philharmonia Orchestra in St Albans on Saturday.
The concert, which features Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances and his Eighth Symphony, is being performed at 7.30pm at St Saviour’s Church in Sandpit Lane.
Eniko has been compared to fellow musician Lionel Tertis by William Primrose of Classic FM’s magazine. He said: “She is one of the most exciting and imaginative violists of her generation.”
She graduated from her native Hungary’s Franz Liszt Academy of Music and then came to London for further studies at the Royal Academy of Music.
CD label Naxos recently released her album The English Viola which received rave reviews with excerpts broadcast by Radio Three and Classic FM.
