Internationally recognized Czech pianist Karolina Syrovatkova has been called by the ABQ Review "a true poet of the piano." She is known for her innovative approach to performing in which she combines her pianistic and dramatic talents to create shows about great composers. She is the winner of several international competitions including the North London and the Sidney M. Wright Presidential Competition. Her vision as a musician is deeply rooted in both the pianistic lineage of European(L’Ecole Normale in Paris, Prague Conservatory) and American schools (University of Maryland: BM, University of Texas at Austin: MM and DMA) and in the well-established principles of the Alexander Technique (AmSAT Certified Teacher). In addition to an active performing and teaching career, Karolina’s multifaceted musical vision has led her to launch classical music series both in the US and in Europe. She has been a champion of Czech music, particularly the music of her distant relative, Bedrich Smetana and of Leoš Janáček. Her latest CD of Janáček’s complete piano music will be released in June 2018. Her experimentation with bridging the gap between classical music and its audiences has led her to create a new art form she calls a “drama concert.” Her series titled Living With the Great Composers combines theater and a classical piano recital in an educational, easy-to-understand and easy-to-love format. She has so far written and acted out personae of Clara Schumann, Olga Janáček, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Vitezslava Kapralova and Caroline von Esterházy.
