Fabian Almazan

Pianist and composer Fabian Almazan, a native of Cuba now residing in New York City, found his musical roots as a child in his homeland of Havana where he first became involved in the classical piano tradition. In 2002 Almazan was selected to perform with the National 2002 Grammy High School Jazz Combo. During the completion of his bachelor's degree at Manhattan School of Music, Almazan immersed himself in the realm of composition studying instrumentation and orchestration. In the spring of 2009 he received a master's degree from MSM, selected as a recipient of the Michael W. Greene Scholarship, studying privately with Jason Moran. Recent awards and residencies include the Sundance Composers’ Lab 2011, where Almazan studied with such acclaimed lm composers as Harry Gregson-Williams, Alan Silvestri, George S. Clinton, Christopher Young, Ed Shearmur and Peter Golub, and the Cintas Foundation 2010/11 Brandon Fradd Award in Music Composition, an award that has been historically granted to Cuban artists who have gone on to play an influential role in the development of Cuban cultural heritage. Fabian Almazan’s first CD, Personalities, which he recently released on his own record label, Biophilia Records, has garnered nationwide critical acclaim. Interest in Almazan's work was also bolstered by his recent performance at the Village Vanguard, which was broadcast live to a nation-wide audience on National Public Radio's Live from the Village Vanguard. For the past four years Fabian has been the pianist for the Terence Blanchard Group and has toured North and South America, Asia and Europe extensively. Fabian Almazan has had the opportunity to share the stage with such artists as Gretchen Parlato, Ambrose Akinmusire, Paquito D'Rivera, Christian Scott, David Sanchez, Kendrick Scott and Stefon Harris among others.
