mirian conti Argentine/ American pianist Mirian Conti, based in New York City, enjoys a growing reputation as a musician whose performances combine technical brilliance with striking originality and artistic insight. Stylistically assured in a wide range of repertoire, Ms. Conti’s prolific recording output and international concerts have garnered praise and awards. In recognition of her extraordinary talent, a scholarship honoring Mirian Conti was established at The Juilliard School by the Edwin Bachman Estate. In addition, she was selected as one of the “100 Outstanding Alumni” to celebrate The Juilliard School’s Centennial in 2005-6. She was a Scholarship student of Richard Fabre and Josef Raieff and graduated from the School with a BM and MM. Other teachers include Genny Blech, Freda Rosenblatt and Byron Janis.

The newly created Steinway & Sons label has released her recordings of the complete Chopin Mazurkas (CD 3003). The Fanfare magazine review of the CD says, “Conti brings all these pieces to life with a spirit of fantasy and imagination that is totally endearing…Conti’s mazurkas rest beside splendid complete sets in my collection by Vladimir Ashkenazy, Alexander Brailowsky, and Alexander Uninsky”. Also on the Steinway & Sons label: Nostalgias Argentinas (2012) and Panorama Argentino (2014). Mirian Conti has appeared worldwide as soloist and with many orchestras, in Europe, Asia, Africa, South and Central America, Canada and throughout the U.S. She has made solo, orchestral and chamber appearances at Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York, Los Angeles’ Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and has performed at numerous concert halls throughout the world, including the Teatro Colón in her native Argentina. She has appeared in Poland, Latvia, Morocco, Spain, France, Italy, Montenegro, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, and many cities in China.

Since 2007, Ms. Conti is on the Faculty of the Evening Division at the Juilliard School. Mirian Conti is a Steinway artist.
