“Édua Amarilla” Zádory, which means "glistening moonrise" in Hungarian, was born in 1974, in the southern Hungarian town of Kecskemét. At the early age of seven, Édua’s outstanding talent on the violin became evident. Taking part in a competition at the Franz Liszt-Musikhochschule, Édua wowed the judges with her exceptional talent and was offered a scholarship at this outstanding Swiss institute of music.
In 1992 Édua began to study under star violinists Habib Kayaleh and Tibor Varga. One of the greatest violinist of the 20th century, Yehudi Menuhin, recognized Édua’s exceptional talent. He invited her to join his master classes at Gstaad, Switzerland.
In 1997 Vienna, the city of music, became the center of her life. At the University of Vienna, Édua studied under highly acclaimed teachers Günter Pichler and Ernst Kovacic. After her university studies, Édua began to attend master classes with István Ruha, Péter Komlós and the Altenberg Trio Wien.
Thrilling, dynamic, chilling, crystal-clear, luminous, deathly still, smoldering – all words to describe Édua Zádory’s violin playing, captured on her GENUIN debut release! The young Hungarian violinist has brought together exclusively world premiere recordings of solo violin works dedicated to her, and the spectrum could not be broader: from the icy landscapes of Filip Sandes to the breathless intensity of Juan Manuel Abras, distant whirring of Federico Placidi, and explosive borderline experiences of Bence Hartl. Captivating from the first to the final note! (GENUIN)
