Hosted by the LSE Arts Lunchtime Concert Series

Named Newcomer of the Year by BBC Music Magazine in 2011, Sarajevo-born pianist Ivana Gavrić has been described as "altogether of an extraordinary calibre” (BBC Music Magazine) with her playing "notable for its beautiful sound, musical integrity and introspection" (Gramophone).

Gavrić has attracted considerable praise for her interpretations of Janáček, Liszt, Schubert, and more recently Grieg, with the Washington Post describing her playing as “impressive, insightful…ravishing”. Recent concerto performances include Rachmaninov’s Second with the Philharmonia at the RFH and Beethoven’s Emperor with the RPO at the Royal Albert Hall. She has also performed with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Aurora Orchestra and Southbank Sinfonia, and has collaborated with conductors including Rafael Payare, Nicholas Collon, Christian Kluxen, Karin Hendrickson and Ben Gernon. Gavrić has also been heard on concert platforms at Wigmore Hall, the Barbican, the Berlin Konzerthaus, KKL Lucerne, Gilmore Festival, as well as across China and in Canada. She created a sensation with her debut album In the Mists, winning BBC Music Magazine Newcomer of the Year. Her recording of Grieg was selected as Gramophone Editor’s Choice and the Grieg Society’s Recording of the Year, while her Chopin disc was picked as Classic FM’s CD of the week.
