Can Çakmur

First prize winner of the 10th Hamamatsu International Piano Competition in 2018 and the Scottish International Piano Competition in 2017, Can Çakmur has per­formed at the Wigmore Hall in London, Glasgow Concert Hall, Eindhoven Muziek­gebouw, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall and Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, as well as at the most prestigious concert venues and festivals in his homeland, Turkey.
A dedicated chamber musician, Can Çakmur’s regular partners are Veriko Tchum­buridze and Dorukhan Doruk (as the Vecando Trio, formed in 2021), cellist Alexandre CastroBalbi and double bass player Dominik Wagner. His recordings for BIS Records have received critical acclaim worldwide, including two con­secu­tive Inter­national Classical Music Awards (ICMA) for Solo Recording of the Year (2019) and Young Artist of the Year (2020). Praising the album Without Borders [BIS2630], Gramophone called him ‘a musician with ideas and sophis­ticated beyond his years […] blessed with the means to express the richness of his imagina­tion.’ An avid writer and speaker, Çakmur has written for the Turkish clas­sical music magazine Andante and occasionally gives lectures on music across a variety of platforms. Can Çakmur’s first musical impulses came with Emre Şen, Jun Kanno and Mar­cella Crudeli. He has later studied with Diane Andersen privately and with Grigory Gruzman at the Franz Liszt University of Music Weimar. He is part of the G&S Pekinel Young Musicians on the World Stages scholarship programme. In 2022 he was appointed to a piano professorship at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire for Music and Dance in London.
