JUAN PÉREZ FLORISTAN

Juan Pérez Floristan is the First Prize and Audience Favorite Prize at the 16th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition, which took place in April-May 2021. His previous achievements include First Prize and the Audience Prize at Santander Piano Competition “Paloma O’Shea” 2015, First Prize at the Berlin Steinway Competition 2015 and the Medal of the City of Seville. Juan Pérez Floristán is at the young age of 28 a benchmark among the new generations of Spanish and European musicians.

Juan has already made his debut in some of the world’s major venues, such as Royal Albert Hall (with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra during the Proms Festival), Wigmore Hall in London, Herkulessaal in Munich, Tonhalle in Zürich, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Béla Bartók Hall and Liszt Academy in Budapest, Teatro La Fenice in Venice, Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, Schloss Elmau, Auditorio Nacional of Madrid, Palau de la Musica de Barcelona and Auditori of Barcelona. He has also performed at festivals such as the Ruhr Klavier Festival, the Verbier Festival, the Sommets-Musicaux Festival in Gstaad (Switzerland), the Santander Festival, the Granada Festival, the Beethoven Festival in Warsaw…

With a repertoire that includes more than 30 concerts for piano and orchestra and that ranges from Mozart to Crumb, he is a frequent guest with orchestras like the Spanish Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra, National Spanish Orchestra, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Monterey Symphony Orchestra, Malmö Symphony Orchestra, Royal Symphony Orchestra of Seville, Philharmonic Orchestra of Malaga, Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, Barcelona Orchestra, Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra, Castilla y León Symphony Orchestra… He has also performed on fortepianos for solo recitals, as well as with orchestras like the Hofkapelle München.

His collaboration with these orchestras is quickly turning into a constant in his career, having also recorded with the BBC Concert Orchestra. This CD will be added to the already long list of record projects that Juan Perez Floristan has faced, which includes his solo CD for Naxos (with works by Liszt, Schumann and Beethoven) and two CDs with chamber works by Schubert, Shostakovich and Brahms. However, his first CD goes back to 2012, when he released his first CD, a live recording of his debut concert at the prestigious Ruhr Klavier Festival in Germany.

The list of conductors, soloists and chamber groups with whom he has collaborated includes Jesús López Cobos, David Afkham, Ian Bostridge, Juanjo Mena, Pablo González, Ben Gernon, Marc Soustrot, Leopold Hager, Lorenzo Viotti, Andrei Ionita, Pablo Ferrández, Kian Soltani, Dietrich Henschel, the Fine Arts Quartet…

He owes his training mainly to his mother, María Floristán; Galina Eguiazarova and Eldar Nebolsin, his current mentor. He has also received advice and lessons from international figures such as Daniel Barenboim, Menahem Pressler, Ferenc Rados, Kirill Gerstein, Nelson Goerner, Claudio Martínez Mehner, Stephen Kovacevich… Even so, especial mention in his training deserves Elisabeth Leonskaja, who, since meeting her proved not only to be an exceptional artist but also a person committed with the new generations of pianists in a full and totally disinterested way, since it has meant invaluable help both in his career and in his personal and artistic development.

His tours have taken him to Europe, Latinoamerica, the USA… having already performed in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Slovenia, Sweden, USA, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Colombia, Peru…
