Bryn Blackwood, pianist

Bryn Blackwood is a solo and collaborative pianist based in Toronto, Ontario, with a keen interest in 20th and 21st century music. As the winner of the 2019 Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition, he gave a Canadian recital tour, bringing contemporary Canadian music to nine cities across the country over a three-week period. In 2020/2021 Bryn performed in a live streamed recital of works by Canadian composer Jacques Hétu at the Canadian Music Centre, and will make his solo debut with the Vancouver Island Symphony, in Mozart’s Piano Concerto no.20 in D minor.

In 2019 Bryn was featured on the prestigious CBC 30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30 List, and won the University of Toronto’s DMA Recital Competition, giving a concert in the Faculty’s Thursday Noon series the next January. As a Guest Artist at the Casalmaggiore International Music Festival 2019, he performed numerous recitals of solo and chamber music. He was a finalist and winner of the Paul J. Bourret Memorial Award for Best Performance of the Test Piece, Franz Liszt’s Paraphrase of Verdi’s Rigoletto at the 2018 Shean Piano Competition. In addition to his solo activities, he is an avid collaborator with singers, and is the pianist for many vocal courses at the University of Toronto.

A recipient of a Joseph-Armand Bombardier SSHRC award for his studies of the Russian-American piano composer Leo Ornstein, he is continuing this research while pursuing a Doctorate of Musical Arts at the University of Toronto. Formerly a student of the late acclaimed pedagogue Marietta Orlov, he now studies with Lydia Wong. Bryn received his Bachelor and Masters of Music degrees from Western University and McGill University respectively.
