EUNIC is pleased to partner with the Austrian Cultural Forum and the Embassy of Croatia to bring acclaimed Croatian pianist Javor Bračić in concert.
Praised by New York Concert Review at his Carnegie Hall Debut for “deep, genuine musicianship and an outstanding technique”, the Croatian pianist Javor Bračić is quickly establishing himself as a sought-after performer. The first prize winner of international piano competitions Luigia Stramesi and Citta’ di Minerbio in Italy, Les Rencontres des Jeunes Pianistes in Belgium, and Zlatko Grgošević in Croatia, Mr. Bračić was invited to perform at the Beijing International Music Festival & Academy, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany, the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, Salzburg Summer Academy, Music Academy of the West in California, and other festivals in Russia, Norway and Hungary. In New York City, Mr. Bračić has given solo recitals at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, Steinway Hall, the Austrian Cultural Forum, the Polish Consulate and the Bohemian National Hall.
His greatest passions include bringing music to audiences unable to visit concert halls, and giving lecture-recitals, especially for young people. He has given a series of concerts at hospitals and nursing homes in Austria as a member of the humanitarian organization Yehudi Menuhin's Live Music Now.
Javor Bračić was born in 1985 in Zagreb, Croatia, where he took lessons from Jelica Kuzmin at the Pavao Markovac Music School. He earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees at the University of Mozarteum Salzburg, in the class of Karl-Heinz Kämmerling. He received another Master’s Degree and a Professional Studies Diploma under full scholarship at Mannes College of Music in New York, studying with Pavlina Dokovska. In the fall of 2013 he was awarded the prestigious Graduate Center Fellowship to pursue a Doctorate of Musical Arts at the City University of New York as a student of Ursula Oppens, Richard Goode, and Norman Carey.
Special guest of the evening will be H.E. Joško Paro, Ambassador of the Republic of Croatia.
Croatian wines will be served after the concert.
