Canadian pianist and composer Serouj Kradjian has established himself as a versatile artist whose readiness to break boundaries and explore different and merge different musical styles has made him an exciting voice on the international music scene. The New York Times has described Grammy- nominated and two-time Juno-award-winning Kradjian’s playing as a “persuasive balance between elegance and spirit,” while the Frankfurter Allgemeine noted that he has “a fiery temperament and elegant sound” with “technique to burn.”
Solo, chamber music recitals and premieres of his compositions have taken Mr. Kradjian from all major Canadian cities, via the U.S – New York (Carnegie Hall), Boston (Jordan Hall), San Francisco, Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles – to European concert halls in London (Wigmore Hall), Paris (Salle Cortot), Munich, Salzburg, Trondheim, Lausanne, Geneva, Madrid, Barcelona and Bilbao, to the Far East in China and Japan and to Latin America (Mexico & Brazil). He is regularly invited to the Luminato, Orford, Montreal Chamber Music, Ottawa Chamber Music, Bergen, Savannah, Rockport, Colmar and Cortona music festivals.
As a collaborative artist, Kradjian has appeared in concert with violinists Ara Malikian, Cho-Liang Lin, Lara St. John, Jonathan Crow, Chee-Yun, violist Kim Kashkashian, soprano Dawn Upshaw, baritone Russell Braun, tenor Michael Shade, guitarist Grisha Goryachev, percussionist Jamey Haddad and the New Orford, Pacifica, Cecilia and Arthur LeBlanc String Quartets.
