Italian pianist Alessandro Deljavan has been astonishing audiences for more than two decades. Acknowledgements began at the age of nine when he won the prestigious Concours musical de France (1st Prize, Paris, 1996). He is embraced for his remarkable prowess and emotional intensity by audiences and colleagues alike.
“Deljavan played Chopin’s B minor Etude with jaw dropping virtuosity and heart-stopping eloquence.”

A prolific recording artist, Alessandro Deljavan has more than 40 albums from the solo and chamber music repertoire.
Of his recent recording of the Chopin complete Études, Pizzicato.lu writes:
“Technically brilliant and with an exceptional imagination, Alessandro Deljavan brings finesse and spontaneity to Chopin’s Etudes.”
Some of the most recent releases (since 2015) include two albums of the complete Chopin Waltzes & Études (Brilliant Classics), the Complete Chopin Mazurkas (Aevea), the Complete Piano / String works of Taneyev (Aevea), the Complete Piano Works of Reynaldo Hahn (Aevea), the Complete Violin Sonatas of Edvard Grieg (Aevea), the Complete Works for Piano and Cello of Martucci (Tactus), Schumann Works for Piano (Academy / Artalinna), Bach Complete Little Preludes (Aevea), Bach: The Seven Toccatas (Piano Classics), and a double CD recording of works by Mompou (Brilliant Classics).

“A concert which only confirms the genuine talent and colossal power of this Italian pianist who we’d like to hear more often in Brussels.”

The Grieg Complete Lyric Pieces (three hours / 66 tracks) released in March, 2018, has had more than 200,000 streams on Spotify in the first month. In nine months on Youtube, the complete Chopin Waltzes has more than 180,000 streams, and his recording of the Satie Gymnopedies have to date more than 5,000,000 streams on spotify.
“Deljavan’s performance was revelatory in every respect. Everyone in the hall knew that they were hearing something special—something wonderful—from the very first notes. At the end, the spontaneous eruption of cheers was so different from the perfunctory ovation that any decent performance is awarded, that being a part of the thrilled crowd was a unique experience in itself.”
