ABOUT SVET STOYANOV

Praised by the New York Times for his “understated but unmistakable virtuosity” along with a “winning combination of gentleness and fluidity,” Svet Stoyanov is a driving force in modern percussion.

Winner of the prestigious Concert Artists Guild International Competition, Svet was also presented with the Johns Hopkins University Alumni Award. His career highlights feature solo concerto appearances with the Chicago, Seattle, and the American Symphony Orchestras, as well as solo performances in Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center and Taiwan National Concert Hall amongst many others worldwide. Some of the conductors he has performed with include James Conlon, Cristian Macelaru, Gerard Schwarz, Oliver Knussen, Marin Alsop and Pierre Boulez. Svet Stoyanov has recorded for numerous labels, featuring Telarc, Naxos and Bridge Records. His albums Percussive Counterpoint, as well as Textures and Threads were broadcast internationally and applauded for their artistic integrity and virtuosic ingenuity.

A passionate advocate for contemporary music, Svet has commissioned a significant body of solo and chamber works. American Rome Prize winner Andy Akiho completed a work for Mr. Stoyanov and his Time Travelers Percussion Project, titled Pillar IV. The work was premiered to great acclaim at New York City’s National Sawdust.

Recent highlight projects feature the commission and performances of Sideman: a percussion concerto written for Svet Stoyanov by Musical America’s Composer of the Year Mason Bates. Sideman was performed in Miami, the Kennedy Center, Kansas City’s Kauffman Center and in Baltimore City. It was also recorded by Svet for an upcoming release, together with Maestro Robert Carnochan and the Frost Wind Ensemble.

Svet Stoyanov is a proud member of the groundbreaking Robert van Sice Percussion Collective. With this group he gave the world premiere of Garth Neustadter’s Seaborne. Svet will join the Collective for upcoming chamber music concerts in Bejing and Shanghai, as well as concerto performances with the Baltimore, Oregon and Colorado Symphony Orchestras.

An inspiring upcoming project of Svet’s features the release of multiple audio/video recordings, under the umbrella of Elemental Culture. This project features real cinematographic capturing of recording sessions. It strives to immerse the listener far deeper into the music, by allowing them to experience it visually, as well as audibly. Among the featured titles is a special collaboration with Katarzyna Mycka – a duo recording of Passacaglia by Anna Ignatowicz Glińska. In late 2018 Svet and Katarzyna will head to Opole, Poland for the world premiere of Ms. Glińska’s double marimba concerto.

Alongside his diverse performance career, Svet Stoyanov is the Director and Associate Professor of Percussion Studies at the Frost School of Music, University of Miami, where he has collaboratively built a most unique and innovative modern percussion program. Students of Svet Stoyanov hold positions in major orchestras, educational institutions, and have won numerous competition prizes worldwide. Svet endorses some of the finest percussion instruments and products today, namely Adams, Remo, Zildjian, Pearl, and Promark.

Svet Stoyanov has performed in more than one thousand recitals and has presented over two hundred masterclasses worldwide. His artistic mission is committed to the purity, quality and virtue of music
