After a spellbinding performance last February, Slava Gryzanov introduced us to another phenomenal classical pianist, rising star Albert Cano Smit. We are fortunate that Albert is making a special visit to Vashon Island this spring before returning to NY to resume an impressive season of concerts.
The 22-year old pianist was awarded First Prize at the 2017 Walter W. Naumburg Piano Competition. He has performed as soloist and chamber musician across Europe and America; and has been praised for playing “with the maturity of someone three times his age” (CBC Music), for his “dazzling technical and emotional dexterity and musicianship” (DNA) and “a superb musician has spoken” (Le Devoir).
Highlights for 2018 included his recital debut at Carnegie Hall, appearances at the Wissembourg Festival, Rheingau Musik-Festival, a recital tour of Spain featuring the world premiere of Miquel Oliu’s preludes, further collaborations with Will Hagen across Germany and the US, collaborations with flutist Anthony Trionfo as well as his recital debuts at L’Auditori de Barcelona, Herbst Theatre in San Francisco, Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, Bravo! Vail in Colorado and concerto debuts with the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, OBC, and Las Vegas Philharmonic.
His recital appearances have taken him to such prestigious venues as the Bozar’s Henry Le Boeuf Hall in Brussels, the Maison Symphonique in Montreal, the Palau de la Musica in Barcelona, the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, Royce Hall in Los Angeles, the Teatros del Canal in Madrid, the Palacio de Festivales in Santander, the Espai Ter in Torroella, amongst others. As a soloist he has performed with the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, the Manchester Camerata, the Nottingham Youth Orchestra, and the American Youth Symphony.
