Janus Høgfeldt Araghipour - Pianist

Repertoire Coach & Assistant Conductor

Janus Høgfeldt Araghipour is a Danish concert pianist, conductor and vocal coach.

After earning his BA with honours at the Danish National Academy of Music he was accepted at the Szymanowski Academy in Katowice, Poland. Janus studied with the internationally acclaimed professor Andrzej Jasinski, in his class of just four pianists. Together they prepared music for international competitions as well as solo performances and chamber music. Jasinski is one of the most successful teachers in Poland with numerous famous pianists as his former students, and Janus was the first Scandinavian to ever get accepted to the school.

Back in Denmark Janus was awarded the 1st prize in the Academy’s Soloist Competition while also winning the prize for best accompanist at ”Young Singers” three times in a row cementing his reputation as an equally adept soloist and collaborator.

In 2014, Janus became associated with London Bel Canto Vocal Studio and director Kenneth Querns-Langley and started preparing his students for auditions and recitals while also attending hundreds of singing lessons. Gradually learning the technique and approach in the tradition of Garcia, Marchesi and Lamperti, Janus started to work more extensively as a coach preparing singers for auditions at houses such as La Scala and Covent Garden.

For 2019, Janus was invited to join the faculty at London Bel Canto Festival as Assistant Conductor along such capacities as Maestri Aprile Millo (2018), Bruce Ford and Nelly Miricioiu-Kirk under the directorship of Kenneth Querns-Langley.
