February 21, 2024

Hailed by The New York Times as a pianist “who's playing combines clarity, elegance and abundant technique” and by The Washington Post as a young artist with “boundless potential” who can “already hold his own with the best,” Pianist Aristo Sham has dazzled audiences on five continents. In 2009, Aristo was featured in the documentary ‘The World’s Greatest Musical Prodigies’ in the UK.

In addition, he has given recitals for the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts in Chicago and the Salle Cortot in Paris, and performed for royalty and dignitaries such as Prince Charles, the Queen of Belgium, and Ex-President Hu of China.

Aristo first gained international recognition when he won First Prize in the Ettlingen International Piano Competition in Germany in 2006, and First Prize in the Gina Bachauer International Junior Piano Competition in 2008. In 2023, he won the Grand Prix at the Monte-Carlo Music Masters. He is the First Prize Winner of the 2018 Young Concert Artists Susan Wadsowrth International Auditions and more recently, the recipient of top prizes at the Casagrande, Gina Bachauer, Vendome Prize at Verbier Festival, Dublin, Clara Haskil, New York, Saint-Priest and Viotti International Piano Competitions.
