Dr. Jannie Sing-Yen Burdeti made her New York debut at the age of 14, appearing in the Young Virtuosos Gala Concert in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. Since then, she has performed as a soloist with orchestras and at festivals in the US, Canada, Germany, Austria, Holland, and Italy. Also an accomplished chamber musician, she has collaborated with luminaries such as Roberto Diaz, Norman Fischer, Paul Hersh, Axel Srauss, Joseph Swensen, and the Calder Quartet.
Dr. Burdeti was a recipient of the DAAD German Exchange Grant for research on European Contemporary Music, which funded a year of study in Freiburg, Germany. During that time, she performed chamber music works by a range of notable German composers, among them, Günter Bialas, Harald Genzmer, Nicholas A. Huber, Wolfgang Rihm, Matthias Spahlinger, and Jörg Widmann.
In recent seasons, she has presented recitals in diverse halls such as the Ruïnekerk in Bergen, Holland, the Telekom Headquarters in Bonn, Germany, and the Steifel Theater in Salinas, Kansas. The Südkurier Newpaper called her playing “not only extraordinary technically, but delivered the composer’s intention masterfully.”
Dr. Burdeti received her Doctorate of Musical Arts from the Johns Hopkins University's Peabody Conservatory, where she studied with Boris Slutsky. She has also received mentorship and guidance from Felix Gottlieb (pupil of Emil Gilels), Meng-Chieh Liu (Curtis Institute of Music), Leon Fleisher (Peabody Conservatory), Hung-Kuan Chen (Juilliard School and Yale University), Arie Vardi (Hannover Hochschule für Musik), and Menahem Pressler (founder of the Beaux Arts Trio).
A deeply committed educator, Dr. Burdeti has served on the faculty at the Peabody Conservatory's Preparatory Division in Baltimore, MD and the Music City Academy in San Francisco, CA. She currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia.
