Usually praised for his highly poetical and original performances, as well as for his musicality and performance ease, Víctor Braojos studied his BMus (Hons) at Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (Barcelona), working with Jordi Masó and Pierre Reach and supported by a scholarship by the Anna Riera Foundation. He later moved to London, where he pursued his Master in Piano Performance (Distinction and Concert Recital Diploma) and his Artist Diploma at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, working with Martin Roscoe and thanks to an Excellence Scholarship Award given by this institution.
Over these years, he has completed his musical formation working with world-acclaimed performers such as Imogen Cooper DBE, Stephen Hough CBE, Robert Levin or Stephen Kovacevich, being chosen at the same time to join the roster of artists supported by renowned institutions, such as the Imogen Cooper Music Trust, Talent Unlimited and the Keyboard Charitable Trust.
He has won several prizes and awards in National and International Piano Competitions, among which we could highlight the 1st Prize in the Catalunya Piano Competition (becoming the youngest winner ever in the 50 years of history of this competition), the 1st Prize in the Barcelona Piano Competition, the 1st Prize in the Girona Musical Competition or the 2nd Prize at the prestigious “El Primer Palau Music Competition”.
His commitment to combine classical repertoire with contemporary music has led him to world-premiere works by some of the most renowned Spanish composers such as Benet Casablancas, Joan Magrané, Marc Migó or Josep Maria Guix and, concurrently to his soloist activity, he usually collaborates with several chamber music ensembles and orchestras, among which we could highlight his multiple collaborations with the Barcelona Medical College Orchestra, conducted by Alfons Reverté.
Along his career he has performed in several venues across Spain, the UK, Italy, France or Russia, among which we could remark concerts at emblematic venues such as the Palau de la Música Catalana, Palau Maricel de Sitges, the National Auditorium of Barcelona or the London Steinway Hall. Over the season 2021-22 he will also make his début recitals at the Ribble Valley International Piano Week, Granollers Auditorium, St. Mary’s Perivale or 30, Pavilion Road Hall.
On November 2021, he released his new CD, Shreds of light, –published by Sheva Collection– which features solo piano works by Bach, Brahms, Migó and Liszt, receiving unanimous acclaim by both the media and audiences.
