Krannert Center Events: January 2022: Young Concert Artists Winner: Albert Cano Smit

Event Details

Along with capturing First Prize in the 2019 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Spanish/Dutch pianist Albert Cano Smit picked up seven other special prizes including the Krannert Center performance prize. Those honors follow his First Prize award at the 2017 Walter W. Naumburg Piano Competition, which presented him in recital at Carnegie Hall. He currently studies with Robert McDonald at The Juilliard School and has benefited from extensive artistic advice from Young Concert Artists alumni Richard Goode and Jean-Yves Thibaudet with whom he gave four-hand piano performances in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. Cano Smit has shared the stage with numerous symphony orchestras in the United States and abroad, including the American Youth Symphony and the Montreal Symphony, and has given recitals at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, at Germany’s Rheingau Music Festival, and throughout Spain.

Salon-style performances offer a close connection between artists and guests as audience members sit in six rows of seats on stage with the performer. Light refreshments are served before and after the performance. Balcony tickets (without refreshments) are also available.
