New York Concert Pianist - Kariné Poghosyan

Described as ‘extraordinary,’ ‘larger than life,’ ‘the powerhouse pianist’…

Award-winning Armenian-American pianist, Kariné Poghosyan, has been praised on the world stage for her “ability to get to the heart of the works she performs.” Since her orchestral debut at the age of fourteen, Kariné has been enchanting concert audiences around the globe, with her masterful artistry and exceptional performances that leave them forever transformed.

Kariné’s most recent concerts include two sold-out recitals at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, the second of which was a CD Release concert of her “Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky” recording on Centaur Records. This recording has since garnered rave reviews, with Gramophone Magazine praising its “masterly textural layering and resounding climaxes,” and the American Record Guide stating that “a more heroic program would be hard to find, and few could play as well as the Armenian-American Poghosyan.”

The renown pianist and WWFM radio host Jed Distler described her performance in the following way, “This is big piano playing, but big in the sense of being in the moment, being present, and totally owning her vitality and imagination.”

Oscar-winning screenwriter Alex Dinelaris said, “Listening to and watching Kariné Poghosyan play fills one with life and energy. The combination of her formidable skill and her unchecked passion is an experience I recommend for anyone who needs to be reminded of the artist and art within themselves.”

Since the very first week of the New York City lockdown, Ms. Poghosyan has launched a weekly livestream mini concert series on her Facebook page, with an entirely new 30-minute program performed each week for a loyal world-wide following.

Why Mini Concerts?

What does a concert pianist do when faced with the prospect of not being able to play to live audiences for the foreseeable future?
