Canceled: The Global Life of a Modern Musician

by Katie Bradley | Jan 27, 2014

Due to inclement weather, The Global Studies Speaker Series event, "The Global Life of a Modern Musician," scheduled for this Wednesday, January 29 at 7 p.m., has been canceled. 

Dejan Lazić’s fresh interpretations of the piano repertoire have established him as one of the most sought-after and unusual soloists of his generation. He appears with such orchestras as the Budapest Festival Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Philharmonia Orchestra, NDR Sinfonieorchester Hamburg, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg (where he was Artist in Residence last season), Swedish Radio, Danish National, Helsinki Philharmonic and Australian Chamber Orchestra. Lazić enjoys a significant following in the Far East appearing with NHK Symphony, Yomiuri Nippon, Sapporo Symphony, Seoul Philharmonic and Hong Kong Philharmonic, amongst others. He works with conductors like Giovanni Antonini, Iván Fischer, Andris Nelsons, Kirill Petrenko, Robert Spano, John Storgårds, Krzysztof Urbanski and Osmo Vänskä.

Appearances this season include returns to the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, both on tour and in Birmingham, under Andris Nelsons, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, where he performs both Brahms concerti, Netherlands Chamber Orchestra and debuts with Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia and Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse. Further afield, he appears for the first time with National Arts Center Orchesra Ottawa and will return to Indianapolis Symphony and Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de Sao Paulo, the latter for the South American premiere of Lazic’s own transcription of the Brahms Violin Concerto as a piano concerto.

Dejan Lazic is also a passionate chamber musician. Recently Artist in Residence with the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, he has given recitals at Amsterdam Concertgebouw, London Queen Elizabeth Hall, Munich Prinzregententheater, Washington Kennedy Center, in Montreal, Tokyo, Beijing, Istanbul and, last season, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires and Sydney Opera House. This season he will appear at the Four Winds Festival in Australia, also appearing for performances and masterclasses at the Australian National Academy of Music in Melbourne.

With Channel Classics he has released a dozen recordings, including his critically acclaimed Liaisons series; the latest of which couples together CPE Bach/Britten. His live recording of Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No 2 with London Philharmonic Orchestra/Kirill Petrenko received the prestigious German Echo Klassik Award 2009. His next release will be a recording of the Beethoven Triple Concerto for Sony Music.

Dejan Lazić is also active as a composer. His works include various piano compositions, chamber music and orchestral works, as well as cadenzas for Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven Piano Concertos. His arrangement of Brahms’s Violin Concerto for piano and orchestra was premiered with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Robert Spano in 2009 and was also released on disc in January 2010 to great acclaim. It has since been performed by Lazic at the BBC Proms, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, at Hamburger Ostertöne festival and in Japan. In summer 2014, Lazic gives the world premiere of his Piano Concerto, at the Aspen Music Festival, with Robert Spano conducting.

Born into a musical family in Zagreb, Croatia, Lazić grew up in Salzburg, Austria, where he studied at the Mozarteum. He now lives in Amsterdam.
