An evening of piano music with the talented young pianist Alexander Gadjiev, born in 1994 into a family of musicians in Gorizia (Italy). Alex was just five years old when he started to show an interest in music. He began piano lessons with his mother before continuing his training with his father, the acclaimed Russian pianist Siavush Gadjiev. He has won first prizes at numerous piano competitions. He made his orchestral debut at the age of nine and gave his first piano recital a year later. In 2012 he graduated magna cum laude from the Bruno Maderna Conservatory in Cesena. A notable milestone in his career came in 2015, when he won first prize and the audience prize at the 9th Hamamatsu International Piano Competition. The competition jury consisted of the noted pianists Martha Argerich, Sergei Babayan, Pavel Nersessian and Akiko Ebi, the last of whom, as jury chairperson, remarked that „[Gadjiev’s] strength lies in the originality and creativity of his interpretation. It is based on tradition, but goes well beyond the traditional confines of music.
