Christian Sereno is a Danish concert pianist. After earning his BA with honours at the Danish National Academy of Music he was accepted at the Szymanowski Academy in Katowice, Poland. There he studied with the internationally acclaimed professor Andrzej Jasinski, in his class of just four pianists. Jasinski is one of the most successful teachers in Poland with numerous famous pianists as his former students – including Krystian Zimerman, and Christian was the first Scandinavian to ever get accepted by the master teacher.
Back in Denmark Christian was awarded the 1st prize in the Academy’s Soloist Competition while also earning the 1st prize for best accompanist at ”Young Singers Competition” three years in a row cementing his reputation as an equally adept soloist and collaborator.
In 2018, Christian was invited to join the faculty at London Bel Canto Festival as artistic director along with such capacities as Maestri Aprile Millo, Bruce Ford and Nelly Miricioiu-Kirk under the directorship of Kenneth Querns-Langley.
”He is a breathtaking collaborator with enormous sensitivity to the singer and his technique and musicality is simply flawless”
– Maestro Bruce Ford
”Firstly, I have to say that Christian Sereno is one of the most brilliant young pianists available. His musicality is extraordinary and his dedication to professionalism and to the development of music is exemplary. Secondly, his ear for voices is second to none”
– Maestro Kenneth Querns-Langley.
Christian’s playing is characterized by an outstanding “cantilena” combined with dazzling virtuosity – a style mostly associated with pianists of the past. He brings depth and substance to mature repertoire such as the 3 Last Sonatas by Beethoven, while also dedicating himself to a full neck-braking Liszt Recital. An artist of the past – and the future.
