The brilliant virtuoso pianist Vassilis Varvaresos is the special guest of Peterhouse Music Society for their Term Concert in the stunning Peterhouse Theatre, which also features Peterhouse Music Society Award winners Aranka Hrušková and Alex Camolly.
At just 14 years old, Vassilis Varvaresos won First Prize in the coveted YCA International Auditions in 1998, and has since gone on to perform internationally in such halls as Zurich's Tonhalle, Vienna's Musikverein and Amsterdam's Concertgebouw. He represented Greece at the 2008 Olympics, and, following his debut at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, he was invited to perform for President Barack Obama at the White House. The 2017-18 season has seen the launch of his new album with APARTE records.
"...Varvaresos is a young master on the rise...” Washington Post
"Varvaresos not only has a natural yet finely honed technique, it springs as one with the wide scope of profound musicianship. Varvaresos engaged his audience with a performance that sizzled from start to finish.” New York Concert Review
