Before his debut at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 2023, Tristan Paradee attained a gold medal at the 2022 Odyssiad International Piano Competition and a Gold medal at the London Virtuoso Piano Competition as well as prizes at the Gina Bachauer Young Artists Piano Competition, Hilton Head Piano competition, Hastings competition, International Liszt Competition, Brussels international Virtuoso Piano Competition, Los Angeles Music Center’s “Spotlight” awards, Young Artists World Chopin Competition and the Young artists World Piano Competition. Paradee is hailed for his electrifying and intelligent performances.
“His Strong playing showed more than grace and passion; it was thoughtful and intelligent, highlighting the orchestra’s muscle”. (Culver City Observer).
“Paradee tells a story with music” (L.A. Times).
Paradees’s introduction to classical music started through his mother’s piano teacher Mr. John Moss who was a student of Arthur Schnabel and instilled the 5-year-old Tristan to “compose and play from within”. During Paradee’s childhood he studied with Dr. Paul Wirth in Minneapolis and later in California with Mary Ann Cummins and Hans Boepple.
Paradee earned a Bachelor of Music degree in 2023 at the University of Indiana’s Jacobs School of Music, studying under the Italian concert pianist Roberto Plano with a full scholarship. He is currently continuing his studies in Paris France at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris de Alfred Corto, under the direction of Rena Shereshevskaya.
Performing on stages and in concert halls across Europe and North America, Paradee has worked with reputable conductors, including Roger Kalia, Marlene Pauley, Rei Hotoda and Frank Fetta. He has been featured at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Performance Today, Minnesota Public Radio (Artist in Residence) and NPR “From The Top” where he received the Jack Kent Cook Scholarship award.
