沈靖韜 先生

世界著名鋼琴家,曾榮獲多項國際大賽冠軍

沈靖韜獲《華盛頓郵報》讚譽為「潛力無限」的年輕鋼琴家,「能夠氣定神閒,發揮最好的表現」。在跨越五大洲的演出,「令觀眾神迷目馳,大為傾倒」。2009年他入選英國第四台播出的紀錄片《世界最偉大的音樂大天オ》。《紐約音樂會評論》說他「表現出強大的掌控力,非常投入」,「不單擁有熱情及傑出的鋼琴演奏技巧,而且條理清晰,邏輯分明」。沈氏曾在多國皇室人員和國家領袖席前獻藝,包括英國查理斯王子、比利時瑪蒂爾德皇后、前中國國家主席胡錦濤等。他也曾與多個樂團合作演出,包括倫敦交響樂團、英國室樂團及香港交響樂團等。

沈氏于2006年德國埃特林根國際鋼琴比賽中,以十歲之齡勇奪冠軍及巴倫賴特出版社原作譜特別獎,繼而在2008年再奪美國珍娜芭候雅國際少年鋼琴比賽冠軍,他的天分立即備受國際音樂界注目。近年榮獲的音樂比賽大獎,計有2015至2016年期間舉行的韋特曼國際鋼琴比賽、鋼琴藝術北美大賽、紐約國際鋼琴大賽;2017年起,他先後獲得韋比耶音樂節的凡登獎,及在分別以卡薩格朗德、嘉娜赫斯喬、衛奧第和珍娜芭侯雅命名的四項鋼琴比賽中獲獎;2018年他參加第一屆查理斯域斯華茲鋼琴比賽,更囊括桂冠及全部三個特別獎。

 

沈氏出生於香港,三歲開始學習鋼琴。十四歲赴英就讀英國哈羅公學,升大學時兼讀美國哈佛大學和新英格蘭音樂學院,同時攻讀經濟學士課程及鋼琴演奏音樂碩士課程。空餘日子,他喜歡旅行、研習各國語言、烹飪和學習釀製葡萄酒。

 

Hailed by the New York Times as a pianist “whose playing combines clarity, elegance and abundant technique,” and by the Washington Post as a young artist with “boundless potential” who can “already hold his own with the best,” pianist Aristo Sham has dazzled audiences on five continents. In 2009, Aristo was featured in the documentary ‘The World’s Greatest Musical Prodigies’, broadcast by Channel 4 in the UK.

 

Aristo has also performed for royalty and dignitaries such as Prince Charles, the Queen of Belgium, and ex-President Hu of China, and collaborated with orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra under Sir Simon Rattle, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra under Edo de Waart, English Chamber Orchestra under the late Sir Raymond Leppard, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne and the Minnesota Orchestra.

 

Aristo first came under international recognition when he won First Prize in the Ettlingen International Piano Competition in Germany in 2006, and First Prize in the Gina Bachauer International Junior Piano Competition in 2008. More recently, he has also won prizes in the Vendome Prize at Verbier Festival, Gina Bachauer, Dublin, Clara Haskil, New York, Saint-Priest and Viotti International Piano Competitions. In 2019, he was First Prize winner of the Casagrande International Piano Competition.

 

Aristo holds a Bachelors in Economics from Harvard University and a Masters in Piano Performance at New England Conservatory. His principle teachers include Eleanor Wong, Colin Stone, Victor Rosenbaum, and Julia Mustonen-Dahlkvist, and is currently in a mentorship programme with Gabriela Montero. In his free time, Aristo enjoys travelling, languages, gastronomy and oenology.
