In partnership with The Sydney International Piano Competition (The Sydney), Byron Music Society is proud to present Italian/Slovenian pianist Alexander Gadjiev, winner of the 2021 competition. Twenty-six-year-old Gadjiev stole the show at last year’s competition, scooping half of all the prizes available.
Praised by critics worldwide, he returns to tour Australia and perform at 24 different concert venues spanning all states and territories.
The national tour reveals an artist on the cusp of a major international career, adding to an already stellar presence in Europe and Japan. Expect a stunning display of virtuosic skills by Gadjiev in a program masterfully crafted and anchored in Chopin and Schumann, along with the world premiere of a new work by Australian composer Colin Spiers, who won The Sydney’s ‘Composing the Future’ competition in 2021.
