Stefan Ćirić

Born in 1986 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. After commencing his piano studies at the age of 6, remarkable early progress led to success in several national and international competitions (Italy, France). As well as concerts and television appearances in Yugoslavia, he has already toured as soloist outside of his country, notably in Amsterdam, Utrecht and London. His orchestral engagements include concerts with the Stanislav Binički Symphony, Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra and London Soloists Chamber Orchestra.

Stefan studied at the Mokranjac High School of Music with Bozena Griner, and subsequently with Mirjana Suica-Babic at the Music Faculty of the University of Arts in Belgrade, having held scholarships of the Yugoslav State Foundation.

Since 2001, Stefan Ćirić has consulted privately with Sulamita Aronovsky in London, continued at the Purcell School and in 2004 was offered a scholarship to study with her at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

In 2003, Stefan won top prize and audience prize in the Cantù International Piano & Orchestra Competition, Italy. His performances in Sala Verdi, Milan and the South Bank, London were received to great critical acclaim and he returned to Italy for a recital tour in 2004 which brought further enthusiastic response.

Recent concerts include Mozart Concerto K.488 at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London which prompted glowing reviews, a recital at Hurstwood Music Series, a return to Kolarac Concert Hall in Belgrade and Rachmaninov Concerto No.3 with the YMSO at St. John’s, Smith Square, London, all attracting praise to the exceptional talent and supreme accomplishment of Stefan Ćirić.
