Celebrated by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 2021 as one of “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30,” pianist Jaeden Izik-Dzurko is earning a reputation as a promising young artist. He has been recognized by audiences, conductors, composers, and critics alike for the exceptional communicative power and thoughtfulness of his interpretations:
On his 2022 debut at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall: “…one of the most refined tonal palettes I have ever heard, combined with a polished close-to-the-keys technique, and a certain basic humility in the service of the music.” –New York Concert Review
Jaeden was a First Prize winner at the 2022 Hilton Head International Piano Competition and the 2022 Maria Canals International Music Competition. Most recently, he was awarded the First Prize, the Canon Audience Prize, and the Chamber Music Award at the 20th Paloma O’Shea Santander International Piano Competition. He is also a Grand Prize winner at the Federation of Canadian Music Festivals’ National Competition, a winner of Juilliard’s Gina Bachauer Scholarship Competition, and a Second Prize and J.S.
