Vanessa Perez

Classical Pianist

“a kind of wild intensity that was often breathtaking…” – Washington Post

As The Washington Post says, Venezuelan-American pianist Vanessa Perez, “is not to be taken lightly”. A product of the energized musical culture of Venezuela, Perez has been praised for a bold, passionate performing style allied to musicianship of keen sensitivity.

One of Perez’s latest projects, “New Worlds” finds the pianist performing with the American actor Bill Murray (Groundhog Day), cellist Jan Vogler, and violinist Mira Wang. Led by the iconic American comedian and cellist Vogler, this group presents a program exploring core American values in literature and music.

As a soloist, Perez’s most recent recording titled “Spain” was released by the Steinway & Sons label in 2016. This Spanish themed album features works by Manuel de Falla and Claude Debussy. Fanfare Magazine praised in June 2016, “the piano is stunningly played and extremely well recorded.” Perez’s previous recording, released in 2012 by Telarc, was “Chopin: The Complete Preludes” – an acclaimed milestone in her discography.

With her recordings and many concerts, Perez has developed a significant international profile, playing some of the most prestigious venues across the U.S., Latin America and Europe. The pianist has performed with conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel, Gustav Meier, James Judd, David Gimenez Carreras, Carlos Izcaray, Diego Matheuz, John Axelrod, and Carlos Miguel Prieto. Also with top musicians such as, Gabriela Montero, violinist Daniel Hope, singers Isabel Rey and Heather Buck, and pianist Ingrid Fliter. Reviewing a Perez performance of Mozart’s D Minor Concerto in Germany with the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, the Dortmunder Zeitung called her “a virtuosa wild at heart and with a gentle touch,” combining “spontaneous freshness and poetic expression.”

The Washington Post reviewed her performance of her Chopin 24 Preludes, Op. 28: “Perez dove into the Preludes as if discovering them for the first time, flinging them out into the hall with a kind of wild intensity that was often breathtaking, as if she were forcing these delicate hothouse flowers into the fresh air for the first time”.

Vanessa Perez is a Steinway Artist.
