Narek Hakhnazaryan

Powerful playing and poetic performances mark the artistry of this exceptional young artist. Hakhnazaryan was the gold medal winner at the 2011 Tchaikovsky Competition, one of the most prestigious competitions in the classical world. At that same competition, he also received first prize for the best performance of the chamber concerto, as well as the audience prize.

Polera regularly collaborates with laureates of the Queen Elisabeth, Tchaikovsky and Naumburg international competitions. She was the winner of the accompanying prize at the VIII International Tchaikovsky Competition.

Already hailed as a “seasoned phenom” by The Washington Post, Hakhnazaryan's intense creativity has assured his place among the world's most sought-after young musicians. Mentored by the late Mstislav Rostropovich, he was the only cellist invited to travel on behalf of Mstislav Rostropovich Foundation, leading him to performances in Russia, Germany, Austria, France, Great Britain, Greece and Turkey. Now emerging as one of the most significant young cellists on the word stage, Hakhnazaryan's upcoming recitals include concerts at Paris's Salle Pleyel, Berlin's Konzerthaus, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, and Tokyo's Suntory Hall, and at the Vancouver Playhouse for the Vancouver Recital Society. Narek Hakhnazaryan plays a 1698 David Tecchler cello, on loan from Valentine Saarmaa, granddaughter of the renowned luthier Jacques Francais.

The CRS program will feature music by César Franck, Frédéric Chopin, Gyorgy Ligeti, Mikhael Bronner and Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

Tickets purchased for the cancelled CRS Layla Claire & Bryan Wagorn concert are valid for this concert.
