Biography

Since graduating from the Royal Academy of Music with the highest distinction, Sarkis Zakarian has pursued a performing career in the United Kingdom and abroad. In 2005 he gave a highly acclaimed debut recital at London’s Wigmore Hall and following pianist Fou T’song’s recommendation, Sarkis was invited to attend the International Piano Academy Lake Como in Italy where he had the opportunity to work with renowned artists such as Leon Fleisher, Claude Frank, Fou T’song, Dmitri Bashkirov and Charles Rosen.

Sarkis was a prize-winner of various competitions in the United Kingdom. He has appeared in venues such as the Purcell Room and St.Martin-in-the-Fields and has been invited to perform solo recitals and chamber music in international festivals such as the Festival der Kunste in Germany, the Glories of the Keyboard Festival in Manchester and the Varna Summer International Music Festival. He was also invited as a member of the jury of the 2nd International Arts Festival La Paon Lamineux in Varna in 2006. His interest in collaborating with contemporary composers led to the inspiring experience of meeting Estonian composer Arvo Part and since then Sarkis has premiered some of the composer’s works in London, which were broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Recently, Sarkis’s concert engagements included performances of the Mozart Concerto K414 with the AGBU Chamber Orchestra – Sofia, and a performance of the Schumann Piano Quintet with the Chilingirian String Quartet during the March Music Days Festival in Russe.

    I don't know if it WOULD have any effect but could I suggest you might get more plays if you tagged each Chopin track 'frederic francois chopin' and 'frederic chopin' and 'chopin' and each Komitas Vartapet track 'Komitas Vartapet'. And all of them maybe 'piano' and 'classical piano'.
