Ivo Pogorelić

Ivo Pogorelić (Ivo Pogorelich) (born 20 October 1958) is a Croatian pianist.


  • First, technical perfection as something natural. Second, an insight into the development of the piano sound, as perfected by the pianist-composers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, composers who understood the piano both as a human voice ... and as an orchestra with which they could produce a variety of colors. Third, the need to learn how to use every aspect of our new instruments, which are richer in sound. Fourth, the importance of differentiation.
