Joachim Carr

Born in 1988 in Edvard Grieg’s home town of Bergen in Norway, Joachim Carr studied with the renowned Czech professor Jiri Hlinka at Barratt Dues Institute of Music in Oslo. He is currently perfecting his outstanding capabilities under the tutelage of Eldar Nebolsin at the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music in Berlin. He has further expanded his excellent training horizons by actively participating in masterclasses given by the likes of Leif Ove Andsnes, Menahem Pressler and Christopher Elton. Thanks to several outstanding prizes, Carr attracted the attention of the international piano scene: in Vevey, Switzerland, he was awarded the young music critics’ Coup de Coeur Prize in 2013; then, in 2014, he won the renowned International Edvard Grieg Piano Competition in Bergen. He has concertized as a soloist and chamber musician in well-known venues such as Wigmore Hall, Konserthus in Oslo and the Berlin Philharmonie. 2014 marked Carr’s first guest appearance.
