Nathalie Khoriaty is an accomplished pianist, composer and performer who transports the listener into a new realm by creating exquisitely intricate music that exudes rich feeling and genuine passion with an undertone of melancholy.
Nathalie has been dedicated to music since she began classical piano training at the age of five. Throughout her classical career she received prizes from many festivals and competitions. At the age of fifteen she began to develop an interest in singing and songwriting. Pursuing her passion for over twenty years led her to many notable engagements, such as being the resident pianist at the Fairmont Château Laurier in Ottawa for thirteen consecutive years.
In recent years, Nathalie has had to overcome losing her singing voice. It would have been hard to foresee that this devastating loss would lead her to discover her immense gift for composing beautifully complex modern instrumental piano music, in the same vein as Yann Tiersen. Inspired by her classical roots, she became motivated and determined to pursue her new path and was soon able to find a deeper musical purpose. In October of 2014, Nathalie was commissioned to compose an original score for a Charlie Chaplin short film and to perform it live, to rave reviews, at the Syracuse International Film Festival.
Don’t miss the opportunity to experience Nathalie Khoriaty’s expansive repertoire of piano pieces as she performs unaccompanied on piano alone at the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall.
