'Gavric's playing throughout is notable for its beautiful sound, musical integrity and introspection.'

- Gramophone

British pianist Ivana Gavrić has attracted considerable praise for her interpretations of Janáček, Liszt, Schubert, and more recently Grieg. She created a sensation with her debut disc In the mists, winning BBC Music Magazine Newcomer of the Year for ‘playing of an altogether extraordinary calibre’. Her fourth album ‘Chopin’ on Edition Records, was selected as Classic FM’s CD of the week, and described by Gramophone as ‘stylish readings.’

Ivana has performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Aurora Orchestra and Southbank Sinfonia. She has collaborated with conductors including Rafael Payare, Nicholas Collon, Christian Kluxen, Ben Gernon and Karin Hendrickson. She especially enjoys working with chamber orchestras and one of her highlights to date has been performing with the Trondheim Soloists. Following her US solo debut, the Washington Post described Ivana’s playing as ‘impressive, insightful… a ravishing performance’. Ivana has also been heard on the major concert platforms including the Wigmore Hall, Barbican, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Berlin Konzerthaus, KKL Lucerne, Gilmore Festival Rising Star Series, as well as across China, in Canada and Japan.
