FLASHBACK FRIDAY | Tibor Varga's 1958 Performance of Mozart's Adagio in E Major

In 1967, he founded the biannual Tibor Varga International Violin Competition, which recently announce this year's finalists


A student of Carl Flesch and Jeno Hubay, Tibor Varga is remembered as one of the most renowned violinists of the 20th century.

He is especially known for his interpretations of concerti by Béla Bartók, Alban Berg, and Arnold Schoenberg — works that were new to the repertoire at the time.

Later on in his career, Varga also began to see success as a conductor. He is credited with having co-founded the Hochschule für Musik Detmold and the Festival Orchestra Tibor Varga in Sion.

In 1967, he founded the biannual Tibor Varga International Violin Competition. Held in Sion, Switzerland, this year's competition is from August 28 - September 4, 2021 — with all rounds of the competition streamed LIVE on The Violin Channel and be available for playback.
