Kemal Gekic: "Piano Works by Bach and Liszt"

Kemal Gekic: "Piano Works by Bach and Liszt"

Classical
Flamboyant, daring, provocative, exciting, seductive and sensitive are some of the words used to describe one of today's most formidable pianists, Kemal Gekic, whose playing has been acclaimed worldwide by public and critics alike. His daring approach to tone and form mark him as a maverick in the musical world, a distinction he welcomes: the very strength of his artistry challenges, provokes, intrigues. "Gekic rides the charismatic edge of genius" - R. Dyer, Boston Globe "He is something like a general who has learned all the rules in the book and is therefore free to ignore them in the time of war" - James Roos, Miami Herald "His playing is transcendental as well as incandescent" - John Ardoin, Dallas Morning News Performing worldwide from a vast repertoire, Kemal Gekic presents fascinating, uncompromising and ever-changing interpretations, always generating frenzied audience enthusiasm. As a recording artist, Kemal Gekic has won accolades in Europe, America and Japan for insightful, original views of the music. His outstanding Rossini-Liszt transcriptions (Naxos) won "The Rosette" of The Penguin Guide for Music, while his recording of Liszt's Transcendental Etudes (JVC) is generally considered to be the best recording of a set in history. Born in Split, Croatia, Kemal Gekic got his early training from Prof. Lorenza Baturina. He graduated the class of Prof. Jokuthon Mihailovic at the Art Academy of Novi Sad and was immediately given a faculty appointment by the piano department which he eventually directed until 1999. Since 1999 he has been Artist in Residence at the Florida International University in Miami, Florida.
