Musica Viva Concert – Alexander Gadjiev
Alexander Gadjiev is the First Prize winner of the prestigious and internationally renowned Sydney International Piano Competition (The Sydney). Awarded by an international jury, Gadjiev stole the show in the 2021 competition, receiving half of all the prizes available to the finalists – a first for any competitor in The Sydney’s 44-year history. Acclaimed by SBS as “one of the most promising pianists of the moment” following his win, the New England Conservatorium is very proud to present Gadjiev to Armidale audiences. The star quality Gadjiev has already shown gives Armidale just a glimpse of the fabulous experience that lies ahead in spring 2022. The programme he will present has a wonderful mix of old favourites, with Chopin and Schumann, and some recent works.
Programme: R Gan – Earth Preserving Chant – Chopin – Prelude in C# minor Op. 45, Barcarolle in F# major Op. 60, and Polonaise Fantasie in Ab major Op. 61; Schumann – Fantasie Op. 17 (World premiere of a new Australian composition).
