Hello and Welcome!
I'm Javor, a concert pianist with a passion for engaging audiences in deep explorations of musical masterworks. I believe music reaches us at a most profound level if we listen carefully. For that purpose I created The Art of Listening, a conversation-concert series that takes audience members on a uniquely interactive, interpretative quest for musical meaning. Check it out in the Art of Listening section of my website!
My concert career has taken me to sixteen countries, across five continents, to concert halls ranging from Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center to local schools, museums, and hospitals. In the past year I have performed the Poulenc Concerto for Two pianos with Jennifer Judd and the St. Louis-based University City Orchestra under maestro Leon Burke. I have given a number of private recitals, as well as recitals at the 92nd Street Y's Weill Art Gallery and Queens College's LeFrak Concert Hall. I also gave a masterclass at Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
This season you can hear me at Merkin Hall on March 19 where I will be performing the Aaron Copland Sextet with Gleb Kanasevich and members of the Bergamot Quartet. On April 21st, I will be playing a solo recital of all Chopin at the Weill Art Gallery at the 92nd Street Y. In May and June I will be presenting two Art of Listening for Kids workshops at the National Opera Center. In the Fall, I am planning a solo recital at Klavierhaus with works from over two hundred years of Croatian classical music.
