From the press release:

András Keller commented: ‘I’m extremely pleased to join Guildhall, where I will do my best to build up a great violin class. In the past few years, I’ve met several exceptional young artists from Guildhall, and besides their great technical ability, I find all of them have great musical sense, commitment, interest, and understanding. So I said to myself, this could be “my school”! I can’t wait to pass on to them what I have learned from my great masters, Sándor Végh, György Kurtág and Ferenc Rados.’
