Praised for his “brilliance in expression . . .illuminated by gentle intensity” (Fränkische Landeszeitung), pianist Nikola Paskalov has actively performed internationally, having given solo and chamber music concerts throughout Europe and USA. He has appeared as a soloist numerous times with the Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra as well as the Sarajevo Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Symphony Orchestra of the Croatian Radio. Recently he gave a solo recital for the “Pianists of the World” concert series at St. Martin-in-the-Fields in London, made his debut recital at Carnegie Hall in New York and performed with Bowen McCauley Dance at the Kennedy Center Therese Theater and Eisenhower Theater in Washington, DC. Nikola appears on, and produced, recordings under the JMM (Jeunesse Musicale Macedonia) label and recorded Nikola Glassl’s piano concerto with the Symphony Orchestra of the Croatian Radio under their label. Most recently Nikola moved to the Washington, DC metro area where he continues to perform as both a solo artist, with soprano, Karin Paludan and their duo, Paludan Paskalov, and others. Eager to help shape and encourage the next generations of young pianists, Mr. Paskalov has also opened private piano studio in McLean, VA.
