Bruce Vogt appears regularly in concert across Canada, and also inspires audiences abroad, having performed in Japan, China, the U.S., Germany, France, Italy, Norway, Czechoslovakia, Romania and Bulgaria.

Vogt grew up in Southern Ontario where he studied with Damjana Bratuz and Anton Kuerti. Later, he studied in the U.S. and Europe with such celebrated musicians as Gyorgy Sebok, Louis Kentner, Fou Ts'Ong and Dario de Rosa.

Vogt's repertoire is diverse, encompassing music from the sixteenth century to the present. He has long championed the music of contemporary composers, and commissioned and premiered a number of new works by such Canadian luminaries as Murray Adaskin and Alfred Fisher. He is also a dedicated performer on period instruments; one of his recordings features music of Robert Schumann performed on a restored 1864 Erard. Other recordings include two volumes of the music of Franz Liszt, which have established for him an enviable reputation as a Liszt interpreter. In 2011 – the bicentenary of the composer’s birth – he recorded two subsequent Liszt CDs.

In addition to his career as a soloist and chamber musician, Vogt is Professor at the University of Victoria. Because he sees teaching and working with young pianists and teachers as an important commitment, he lectures widely, leads master classes and workshops and adjudicates for festivals.

In recent years he been invited more frequently in Canada and abroad to indulge another passion – presenting and improvising accompaniments to great films of the silent era.
