Albert Cano Smit: Twenty-six-year-old Spanish/Dutch pianist Albert Cano Smit has been winning international competitions since age 14. In October 2019, Albert made his Carnegie Hall debut with the world premiere of Stephen Hough’s Partita for Piano—a piece commissioned for him by the Naumburg Foundation. In addition to winning the Naumburg Foundation First Prize in 2017, Albert won First Prize in the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in 2019. His Fondation Louis Vuitton recital in early 2019 at the Frank Gehry–designed “glass cloud” in Paris was broadcast live globally. CBC Music notes that he “plays with the maturity of someone three times his age.” Smit finished his Master’s at Juilliard in 2020, and was awarded the Arthur Rubinstein Piano Prize from The Julliard School.
