BIOGRAPHY

Awarded the Spanish National Radio Culture Prize (Premio Ojo Crítico), Eduardo Fernández is one of the finest pianists of his generation, distinguishable in particular by the depth, maturity and singularity of his interpretations.

 

Highly praised as a concert soloist, Fernández has just worked with the Spanish National Orchestra, RTVE Orchestra (Spanish Radio and Television), Madrid Symphony Orchestra, City of Granada Orchestra as well as the ORCAM Orchestra (Comunidad de Madrid). He has obtained great success in important concert halls such as the Berlin Philharmonie, St. Petersburg Philharmonia, Shanghai Oriental Art Center, Beijing National Centre for the Performing Arts and Philharmonie Luxembourg.

Eduardo has collaborated with conductors including Santtu-Matias Rouvali, Víctor Pablo Pérez, François López-Ferrer, José Ramón Encinar, José Miguel Pérez-Sierra and Antoni Ros Marbà. His love of chamber music has led to partnerships with musicians such as the Athenäum Quartet, Lina Tur Bonet, Robert Silla, Álvaro Octavio, Eduardo Raimundo and Yuval Gotlibovich. Appearances at festivals include Granada, SMR Cuenca, Musika-Música and Piano aux Jacobins.


His recordings have met with critical acclaim by the most prestigious magazines.

His next recording project will cover all the Scriabin Etudes. After his successful recording of Iberia, Eduardo Fernández has been hailed by Fanfare Magazine as “Alicia de Larrocha’s successor”.
