Javier Perianes is probably the most famous contemporary Spanish pianist in the world. Acclaimed for his discography, which features works by Mompou, José de Nebra, Chopin, Debussy, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Grieg, and an award-winning member of orchestras that have performed in Europe, America and Asia, Perianes won the Spanish Award for Music in 2012. He is also acclaimed for his light touch, which blends with his exquisite choice of repertoire. He burst onto the music scene when he was only 22, and has grown in stature to become one of the favourite performers of leading conductors such as Daniel Barenboim, Zubin Mehta, Michael Tilson Thomas, Yuri Temirkanov, Juanjo Mena, Josep Pons and Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos. Javier Perianes is an inspiration to young Spanish musicians.
