Maksim Mrvica | Piano – TRANSCEND Media Service

John Barry’s Famous Composition


Croatian born pianist Maksim Mrvica started to play piano when he was nine and by the age of 11 he held his first concert as a soloist with an orchestra. It wasnt always easy to harbour his dream of becoming a concert pianist, especially when, at the age of 15, war broke out in Croatia. With sometimes 1000 grenades a day falling on his city, Maksim continued to practice his piano in the basement of his music school. By that time he had won first prize in a National Competition in Zagreb. Later on, he won first prize at the Rubinstein Piano Competition in Paris and first prize at Pontoise Competition in France. For his first album Gestures, he was awarded with four Porin awards (Croatian Grammys).
