25-year-old Canadian pianist Alice Burla has an impressive track record. One of the youngest students ever to be accepted at Juilliard, where she studied with Oxana Yablonskaya, she made her orchestral debut at the age of 5 and played her first solo recital at 6. She has already performed in some of the world’s most important venues, including Carnegie Hall, Teatro la Fenice in Venice, Palau de la Música Catalana, Salle Cortot, Wiener Saal at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and Glenn Gould Studio at CBC Radio in Toronto.

No stranger to competitions, she has accumulated many prizes and dazzled jury members over the last few years, notably at the 2019 Concours International de Piano Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the 2019 Royal Birmingham International Piano Festival Competition, the 2013 American Prize, the 13th Hamamatsu International Piano Academy Competition, the 8th New York Music Competition, and many Canadian National Music Competitions. Recent performances have been featured on American PBS telecasts of Live from Carnegie Hall and on WQXR as part of the From the Top national radio broadcast. She has also appeared on Swiss and Spanish National Radio.

This year, Burla’s performance at the Concours musical international de Montréal won her two special awards, the André Bourbeau Award for the best Canadian artist and the André Bachand Award for the best performance of the compulsory Canadian work, as well as a special $3,000 grant offered by Groupe Colabor. Burla holds an undergraduate degree from Musik Akademie Basel, where she is currently pursuing a master’s degree with Claudio Martínez Mehner. She will make her recital début at the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory’s Rachmaninoff Hall this month.
