Related to the great Hungarian violinist Joseph Joachim, Gusztáv Fenyo first came into prominence while still a student of the NSW Conservatorium of Music in Sydney, winning the Australian Broadcasting Commission's concerto competition with Liszt's E flat concerto. His studies continued in London with Schnabel's disciple, Maria Curcio, and in Budapest at the Liszt Academy where he gave Hungarian premières by Stockhausen, Boulez, Xenakis, Cage, Takemitsu, amongst others.   At his Wigmore Hall début in 1978 he premièred György Kurtág's Games . He has since performed widely as soloist and chamber musician on three continents, and is well-known in Scotland for his one-composer cycles including Beethoven's 32 Sonatas, Chopin's complete piano works, Shostakovich's 24 Preludes & Fugues and JS Bach's ‘Well-Tempered Clavier'. He has played nearly forty concertos with orchestras including the Philharmonia (London), BBC Scottish, Hungarian Radio and Television, Bucharest Philharmonic, Sydney and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras, under conductors such as Frémaux, Osawa, Iwaki and Fürst. He has also performed almost the entire chamber music repertoire, partnering distinguished musicians such as Vesselin Parashkevov, Susanne Stanzeleit, Roger Chase, Raphael Wallfisch, Gervase de Peyer, Michael Collins, Zoltán Kocsis, Balázs Szokolay, Geraldine McGreevy, Jane Irwin.
