Description

**Alessandro Deljavan** “He is one of the most major talents of his age that I have ever heard and one of the few pianists I would go out of my way to hear.” —_John Perry, eminent pianist and pedagogue_ “He is one of the most interesting pianists I have heard in my life.” —_Fou Ts’ong, eminent pianist and pedagogue_ Born of an Italian mother and Persian father, Mr. Deljavan began playing piano before the age of two, and gave his first performances at age three. He has since performed around the world, in Austria, Belgium, China, Columbia, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland and the United States. “Italian pianist Alessandro Deljavan made the Rachmaninoff Second Piano Concerto an edge-of-seat experience.” —_Scott Cantrell, Dallas Morning News_ “His playing is full of intensive power and contagious artistry.” —_Dmitri Bashkirov, eminent pianist and pedagogue_
