"A performance fully deserving of its standing ovation" - Czech Fund for Art Music, 2012.
Canadian based, Czech-born pianist Markéta Ornova is praised for her sensitivity of tone and innovative concert programming. Markéta is particularly passionate about contemporary music performance, collaborative work with voice, and interdisciplinary performance. She is excited about creating performances that go beyond the expected theatrical-frame of a recital.
An enthusiastic performer of contemporary music, Markéta loves working directly with composers on their works. She worked with composers Philippe Leroux (2015) and Ana Sokolovic (2016) on their works, and has spent the last two summers working with conductor Veronique Lacroix (ECM+) on contemporary music performance. She has also had the pleasure of working with several Toronto-based contemporary music organisations, including Tapestry Opera (Songbook VII, 2017), Caution-Tape Sound Collective (Quintile, 2017), and the Canadian Marginalized Art Song Project (Sounds of Silence, 2016, 2017).
