Joachim Segger


Dr. Joachim Segger (BMus, MMus, Performer’s Certificate, Eastman School of Music; DMus UAlberta) is a versatile musician who performs internationally as a piano soloist and collaborative artist. Primary mentors and teachers were Ernesto Lejano, Cécile Genhart, Kurt Neumuller, Helmut Brauss, and Menahem Pressler. As winner of the New York Canadian Women’s Club competition, he performed a solo recital in Carnegie Recital Hall, NY.

He recorded the Ravel G Major Piano Concerto with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, and performed numerous concertos with the ESO and the Edmonton Youth Orchestra. Joachim’s solo piano CD “Bravato” was recorded on the iconic nine-foot Yamaha concert grand once owned by Glenn Gould, now housed in Knoppers Hall at The King’s University. It features works by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Ginastera, Haydn, and Beethoven. Most recently, Joachim performed the complete Beethoven violin and piano sonatas with Frank Ho at The King’s University, a solo piano recital, and three chamber music recitals at the U of A.

Joachim regularly joins Marnie Giesbrecht as the internationally well-known Duo Majoya (Edmonton Arts & Culture Hall of Fame, 2014; Honorary Fellows RCCO, 2015). Together, they have commissioned and played more than twenty contemporary works for organ duet, piano duet, and the unlikely, but magnificent, organ/piano combination. Their new CD, “Canadian Suite Celebrations,” recorded in the Winspear Centre will be released on the Centredisc label in May, 2024.

Dr. Segger is Professor Emeritus of the Music Department at The King’s University, Edmonton.
