Alessandro Deljavan


Born of an Italian mother and Persian father, Alessandro Deljavan began learning to play piano before the age of two and gave his first performances at age three. 

He has since performed around the world including in Austria, Belgium, China, Columbia, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland and the United States.

Praise coming from the press and eminent pianists include:

"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."
-Gregory Sullivan Isaacs, Theater Jones (Fort Worth, Texas)

"He is one of the most interesting pianists I have heard in my life."
-Fou Ts'ong, eminent pianist and pedagogue

"His playing is full of intensive power and contagious artistry."
-Dmitri Bashkirov, eminent pianist and pedagogue

"Alessandro Deljavan 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 has won top prizes at many competitions including 1st Prize at the Concours musical de France and 2nd Prize at the Johann Nepomuk Hummel and Isangyun International Competitions, as well as Discretionary Awards at the Cliburn Competition in both 2009 & 2013, among others.

Alessandro Deljavan has performed with orchestras such as the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra in St. Petersburg, Russia and the Fort Worth Symphony in Texas, United States. His performance with the Wu Han Philharmonic marks his orchestral debut in China (June 2015).

Alessandro Deljavan has more than 30 commercial recordings with eight new albums being released in 2015.

His several Cliburn recitals have each been seen by over half a million people in 155 countries. He also appears in other films such as the documentary Liszt: The Pilgrimage Years (RAI - Italian TV) and the documentary of the 2013 Cliburn: "Virtuosity," which is being broadcast on the Public Broadcasting Service (USA) in July, 2015.

In 2010, Alessandro Deljavan became the youngest professor in an Italian conservatory. In addition to his touring schedule, he is currently professor of piano at the Niccolò Piccinni Conservatory of Bari, Italy.
