The Artist

Usually praised for his highly poetic 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 from the Anna Riera Foundation. Later he moved to London where he pursued his Master’s in Piano Performance (Distinction and Concert Recital Diploma) at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, working with Martin Roscoe and thanks to a Guildhall Excellence Scholarship Award.

He completed his musical formation working with world-acclaimed performers such as Imogen Cooper DBE, Stephen Hough CBE, Robert Levin and 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 and the Keyboard Charitable Trust.

He has won several prizes and awards in national and international piano competitions, including 1st Prize in the Catalunya Piano Competition (youngest winner ever in the 50 years of this competition), 1st Prize in the Barcelona Piano Competition, 1st Prize in the Girona Musical Competition and 2nd Prize at the prestigious ‘El Primer Palau’ Music Competition.

His commitment to combining 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 and Josep Maria Guix. Concurrent with his soloist activity, he works with several chamber music ensembles and orchestras, including his multiple collaborations with the Barcelona Medical College Orchestra, conducted by Alfons Reverté.

He has performed in venues across Spain, the UK, France and Russia, notably the Palau de la Música Catalana, Palau Maricel de Sitges, the National Auditorium of Barcelona and 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 and 30, Pavilion Road Hall, as well as releasing his new CD project ‘Shreds of light’.
