Juan Pérez Floristan - pianist

Juan Pérez Floristán, who was awarded the 1st prize and the audience prize at the "Paloma O'Shea Santander International Piano Competition" in 2015 and won the 1st prize at the "Steinway Piano Competition" in Berlin as well as the honorary prize at "Juventudes Musicales de Madrid", is one of the great hopes of the new generation of European musicians.

He has made his debuts in the most important cities of Europe and Latin America within a very short time and has performed at the Wigmore Hall in London, the Hercules Hall in Munich, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, the Salle Cortot in Paris, the Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid and the Teatro de la Maestranza in Seville, among others. He has also given concerts in Hamburg, Hanover, Zurich, Bern, Budapest, Warsaw, Turin and Milan. He has performed with orchestras such as the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, the Malmö Symphony Orchestra, the Orquesta de Radio Televisión Española, the Royal Symphony Orchestra of Seville, the Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife, the Orquesta Philarmónica de Gran Canaria and the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, Málaga and Cordoba and has worked with conductors such as Pablo González, Jesús López Cobos, Marc Soustrot, Adrian Leaper, Juan Luis Pérez, Lorenzo Viotti, Christian Arming, Lorenzo Ramos, Pedro Halffter, Víctor Ambroa and Rubén Gimeno.

Another focus of Juan Pérez Floristán is chamber music. He regularly plays in the VibrArt Trio together with Miguel Colom (violin) and Fernando Arias (cello), with whom he received musical inspiration from Menahem Pressler and Kennedy Moretti. Also noteworthy is his collaboration with great musicians such as Abel and Arnau Tomàs (members of the Cuarteto Casals), Adrien Boisseau (former violist of the Quatuor Ebène), Pablo Barragán (clarinet), Andrei Ionita (winner of the Tchaikovsky Competition) and Dietrich Henschel (tenor). He has also taken part in prestigious chamber music meetings, including the Verbier Festival, Santander Music and Academy Encounter and Les Arcs Festival, where he performed with the famous Fine Arts Quartet.

His future appearances outside Europe include concerts with orchestra and recitals in California, Miami, Abu Dhabi, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and Brazil, and he has already performed in Mexico, Uruguay and Panama.

He received his first piano lessons at the age of ten from his mother, María Floristán, who was his teacher and mentor. He received further musical impulses from great musical personalities such as Daniel Barenboim, Nelson Goerner, Ana Guijarro, Claudio Martínez Mehner, Menahem Pressler, Stephen Kovacevich, Klaus Hellwig, Ralf and Mark Gothoni, Jacques Zoon, Márta Gulyás, Frans Helmerson, Horacio Gutiérrez and Ferenc Rados. During his four-year studies with Galina Eguiazarova at the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía in Madrid, the foundation for his professional career was finally laid. Currently, the young pianist is studying at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin with Eldar Nebolsin, who still has a strong influence on him today.
