The Croatian pianist Javor Bracic is the first prize winner of international piano competitions in Italy, Croatia and Belgium. At his Carnegie Hall debut recital he was hailed by New York Concert Review for “deep, genuine musicianship and an outstanding technique.” His CD album Tribute to Haydn was released on Labor Records and his performance was broadcast on WQXR. He was invited to perform throughout the USA, Europe, China and South Africa.
In the desire to promote classical music and change the way it is appreciated, Javor started a series of conversation-concerts under the title The Art of Listening. He was praised by the audience for his “contagious enthusiasm” and “unique ability to elucidate imagery both as a performer and teacher.”
Javor holds degrees from the University of Mozarteum in Salzburg and Mannes College in New York. He is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Musical Arts at the City University of New York, studying with Ursula Oppens, Richard Goode and Norman Carey.
