David Jalbert

A virtuoso with a warm, elegant style and a wide-ranging repertoire, pianist David Jalbert has established himself among the elite of a new generation of classical musicians: “Jalbert’s piano playing is remarkable for its sweep, confidence, sensitivity, power and color, what more can we ask?” (Fanfare). Recently named by the CBC among the 15 best Canadian pianists of all time, Mr. Jalbert performs regularly as a soloist and recitalist across North America and Europe. His solo recordings – of the Goldberg Variations, the Shostakovich Preludes and Fugues, of American and French piano music – have all garnered international praise in venues ranging from Gramophone to France-Culture. An accomplished chamber musician, he has collaborated with artists such as Nicola Benedetti, Jean-Philippe Collard and the Quatuor Alcan and is a member of Triple Forte (along with violinist Jasper Wood and cellist Denise Djokic). A national and international prize-winner, David Jalbert has won four times at the Prix Opus and garnered three Juno Awards nods in recent years. He is a graduate from the Juilliard School, the Glenn Gould School and Université de Montréal and a professor of piano at the University of Ottawa.
