Jalbert, David

“Jalbert’s piano playing is remarkable for its sweep, confidence, sensitivity, power and color, what more can we ask?” (Fanfare) Canadian pianist David Jalbert is featured on this recording of piano transcriptions of Russian ballet repertoire. He brilliantly performs music from Stravinsky’s Petrushka and The Firebird, and from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. A virtuoso with a warm, elegant style and a wide-ranging repertoire, pianist David Jalbert has established himself among the elite of a new generation of classical musicians: Recently named by the CBC among the 15 best Canadian pianists of all time, Mr. Jalbert performs regularly as a soloist and recitalist across North America and Europe. A national and international prize-winner, Jalbert has won five Opus awards, was nominated three times at the Juno Awards, and was the 2007 laureate of the prestigious Virginia Parker Prize of the Canada Council for the Arts. He holds degrees from the Juilliard School, the Glenn Gould School, Universite de Montreal and Conservatoire de Musique du Quebec, and is now Associate Professor of Piano at the University of Ottawa.
