    "An absolutely first class performance by an absolutely first class thinking pianist." - Classics Today.

    Canadian pianist David Jalbert returns with the much-anticipated second volume (Nos. 5 to 7) of Prokofiev's complete piano sonatas. Released in 2021, Volume I received widespread critical acclaim thanks to Jalbert's "keen understanding of this daunting repertoire, tempered by a flawless technique", - The WholeNote.

    A virtuoso with a warm, elegant style and a wide-ranging repertoire, pianist David Jalbert has established himself among the elite of a new generation of classical musicians. "Jalbert's piano playing is remarkable for its sweep, confidence, sensitivity, power and color, what more can we ask?" (Fanfare).

    Named by the CBC among the 15 best Canadian pianists of all time, Mr. Jalbert performs regularly as a soloist and recitalist around the world. As a soloist, Jalbert has performed with Yannick Nezet-Seguin, Skitch Henderson, Bramwell Tovey, and others. An accomplished chamber musician, he has collaborated with such artists as Nicola Benedetti, Rachel Barton Pine, Bomsori, and Jean-Philippe Collard.

    A national and international prize-winner, David Jalbert has won six Opus Awards, was nominated five times at the Juno Awards, and was the 2007 laureate of the prestigious Virginia Parker Prize awarded by the Canada Council for the Arts.
