Alfredo Ovalles

  • Acclaimed pianist specialized in contemporary music
  • Piano, Composition

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Alfredo Ovalles is a pianist and composer living in different musical worlds at the same time. 

Drawing from his classical background, while living amidst the musical sounds and energy of Caracas – and his experience performing in rock and pop bands – Alfredo’s compositions live within his own intersection of classical, contemporary and experimental music and Pop/Rock.

Alfredo performs both as soloist and chamber musician, and has played concerts with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Polish Baltic Philharmonic  and the National Symphony Orchestra of the Dominican Republic, among others. He has also performed at music festivals throughout Europe, including Modern Vienna, the Transart Festival in Bolzano, and the Warsaw Autumn Festival.

His concert programs often center on J. S.  Bach and Leonard Bernstein, and one of his signature performance pieces is his own solo piano version of Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from “West Side Story."

When he finished high school, Alfredo’s parents told him that he needed to study something other than music, since they didn't see it as a viable option for making a living. He took the required entrance exam, and since he really didn't want to do anything other than music, he answered every question wrong. 

"With verve and symphonic colorfulness, Alfredo's interpretation is delivered with full physical commitment and everything that goes with it." (Pianist Magazine)
