Please join us for an evening of music with pianist Karolina Syrovatkova at Schmitt Music Denver on Thursday, December 6 at 7:00PM.
Karolina’s Vision as an artist is deeply rooted in the belief that art should be experienced on many levels and should be accessible to everyone. She created the “Living With the Great Composers” Series as an innovative way of experiencing classical music where she bridges various disciplines such as music and drama to create a new, exhilarating art form – the drama concert.

Watch Karolina perform Josef Suk’s Song of Love:
Internationally recognized Czech pianist Karolina Syrovatkova has been called by the ABQ Review “a true poet of the piano.” She is known for her innovative approach to performing in which she combines her pianistic and dramatic talents to create shows about great composers.
She is the winner of several international competitions including the North London and the Sidney M. Wright Presidential Competition. Her vision as a musician is deeply rooted in both the pianistic lineage of European (L’Ecole Normale in Paris, Prague Conservatory) and American schools (University of Maryland: BM, University of Texas at Austin: MM and DMA) and in the well-established principles of the Alexander Technique (AmSAT Certified Teacher).
In addition to an active performing and teaching career, Karolina’s multifaceted musical vision has led her to launch classical music series both in the US and in Europe. She has been a champion of Czech music, particularly the music of her distant relative, Bedrich Smetana and of Leoš Janáček. Her latest CD of Janáček’s complete piano music will be released in December 2018. Her experimentation with bridging the gap between classical music and its audiences has led her to create a new art form she calls a “drama concert.” Her series titled Living With the Great Composers combines theater and a classical piano recital in an educational, easy-to-understand and easy-to-love format. She has written and channeled the personae of Fanny Mendelssohn, Clara Schumann, Olga Janáček, and Caroline von Esterházy. Her latest drama concert entitled “Vitka: the Lady in a Bow Tie” has been featured at the Kennedy Center in September of 2018. Learn more on her website: pianistkarolina.com.
