Tallowdale Music Twilight Concert: Featured Artist, Jonathan Martinovici

Only one month to go until Tallowdale Music's Twilight Concert, "From Hidden Valleys..."

Allow me introduce another musician who will be performing in the concert, Jonathan Martinovici. Alongside works by Jonathan L. Billingham, Martinovici will be performing some solo piano music by J. S Bach. 

Jonathan Martinovici was born in 1992. He began learning the piano when he was eight years of age. In 2009, he studied piano with Dr Jeanell Carrigan. In the same year he attained his AMusA in Piano with Distinction. In 2010, he studied piano at the Australian Institute of Music with Wojciech Wisniewsky. In 2011, he began his Bachelor of Music at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, majoring in Performance on Pianoforte with Dr Paul Rickard-Ford, also receiving his LmusA in Piano with Distinction in the same year.

Jonathan completed his studies at the Sydney Conservatorium in 2014, achieving First Class Honours. In 2013, he was selected to perform Bach’s Capriccio on the departure of a beloved brother in a masterclass taken by Angela Hewitt. In January 2015, while on a mission trip, Jonathan gave a series of short concerts in Kagoshima, Japan, in which he performed his own solo piano arrangements of Christian hymns, along with some standard classical repertoire.

Jonathan is presently undertaking a Doctor of Philosophy (Arts and Social Sciences) research, aiming to formulate a theory of aesthetics derived directly from Reformed Theology, to then be applied to music. He presently teaches piano privately and in schools, and is also the member of a Blue Mountains based Salsa band, Soy Segundo.
