Gregor received his Master's degree in Jazz Piano at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria in 2011.
Over the years he has worked with many of the finest internationally recognized jazz instrumentalists and singers (Don Menza, Bob Brookmeyer, Boško Petrović, Howard Curtis, Derrick Gardner, Francis Mbappe, Peter Herbolzheimer to name a few), played in big bands (Austria, Czechia and Slovenia) and in numerous combos (duos, trios and quartets up to the “nine-piece band”), as well as a solo pianist. He has participated in numerous studio recordings (as a sideman and
leader) and played in jazz clubs and festivals all over Europe (Slovenia, Austria, Italy, France, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Germany, Serbia, Croatia, Slovakia, Czechia, Hungary). Although Gregor's main occupation is piano (& keyboard and organ), he is also a dedicated composer and arranger.
In July 2014, Gregor's jazz piano trio performed in finals of the European Jazz Competition (organized by the European Broadcasting Union) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In September 2014 he toured Czechia with the European Jazz Orchestra. In the same year he co-founded the jazz sextet “Sharp 6”. In 2017 he released his debut album “Gregor Ftičar: Solo”, which includes his own compositions and arrangements. He's currently co-leading "NorthEast"
trio, based in Geneva (Switzerland), and we can expect their new album release in 2022.
Here we go again: due to the stubbornly persistant Covid-19 pandemic situation, a number of cultural events are being cancelled or postponed. Nevertheless, we keep on going! Wishing all some healthy and serene winter months.
