Pianist Alexander Gadjiev’s outstanding achievement

18. 10. 2021

Pianist Alexander Gadjiev from Gorizia made it to the finals at the famous Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. He is the first Slovenian pianist to participate in this elite competition.

Alexander Gadjiev, who performed at the 66th Ljubljana Festival in 2018 and at the 4th Winter Festival in 2020, became the absolute winner of the Sydney International Online Competition this July, and in 2019 he was selected among the BBC New Generation Artists 2019‒2021.

At 6.40 pm tomorrow, 19 October, Aleksander will be performing Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Minor, Op. 21. You can also watch the competition live via a mobile app (iOS and Android), at the website Chopin2020.pl (Multimedia tab) or on the Chopin Institute’s YouTube channel.

Congratulations to Alexander! All of us at the Ljubljana Festival will be cheering for him, too!
