Edward Enman’s musical originality is gaining him a reputation as a leader in the contemporary music landscape. A recipient of the Zoya Solod Scholarship in piano at the University of Ottawa (MMus), and a University Scholar at Acadia University (BMus – studying with Ronald Tomarelli), he is currently studying with acclaimed pianist David Jalbert. Further instruction with pianists Jean-Paul Sévilla, Andrew Tunis, André Laplante, and Amy Lin has increased his passion in performing some of the most difficult repertory for the piano. Recent engagements include work with Canadian pianists Maneli Pirzadeh, Janina Fialkowska, Laplante, and Anton Kuerti. Edward won 3rd prize in the 36th Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition in the spring of 2013.
As a chamber musician and collaborator, Edward is in increasingly high demand as a result of his work with Laurence Ewashko (Opera Lyra, Vienna Boys Choir) and Duain Wolfe (Chicago Symphony Orchestra) at the National Arts Centre, Ottawa. He also served as répétiteur in the 2012 production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the University of Ottawa and was active in the same position for Acadia University’s production of Die Fledermaus in the 2012-2013 season. Edward’s award-winning choral compositions have been widely received and performed by several of the best choirs in Canada.
At the age of 17 he won the Vancouver Chamber Choir’s Young Composers’ Competition and has since had his works performed by the Canadian Chamber Choir, Capital Chamber Choir, Calixa Lavallée Ensemble, and the Halifax Camerata Singers as the winner of the ensemble’s 2011 composition competition.
Currently based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Edward is engaged as a collaborative pianist and répétiteur with Acadia and Dalhousie Universities, as well as the Camerata Xara Young Women’s Choir.
