Mariam Batsashvili, piano
Now in her mid-20s, Georgian pianist Mariam Batsashvili already ranks among the most promising of young artists. She gained international recognition at the 10th Franz Liszt Piano Competition in Utrecht, where she won First Prize as well as the Junior Jury Award and the Press Prize. This success led to her first performances with leading symphony orchestras and to an extensive program of recitals in more than 30 countries. She was nominated by the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO) as ‘Rising Star’ for the 2016/17 season.
Ms. Batsashvili has been announced as a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist and is performing at major festivals and concert venues across the UK as part of that award.
