The cellist joins the UK institution this year


The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester has named Miklós Perényi as its new International Chair in Cello from the current term.

Born in Hungary in 1948, the international solo and chamber performer is a multi-award winner, who completed his studies at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, where he later became a lecturer and professor.

‘I am thrilled for our cello students that Miklós is joining us in the role of International Chair,’ said cellist and RNCM Head of Strings Chris Hoyle. ‘It is a real privilege to watch this consummate artist teach and perform for our students. My colleague Petr Prause of the Talich Quartet describes him as a 'living legend' and our International Chair in Viola, Nobuko Imai, as a 'true genius'.’
