Speaker: Andrius Zlabys, pianist, featured composer

Born in Armenia into a musical family, Sergei Babayan studied piano in Moscow before leaving the USSR in 1989 and winning consecutive first prizes at the Cleveland International Piano Competition, the Hamamatsu Piano Competition, and the Scottish International Piano Competition. Today, he is regarded as a leading pianist of our time and a mentor to tomorrow’s leaders, counting Daniil Trivonov among his students.

Babayan opens the first half of his Festival program with two transcriptions: music by Bach transcribed by Busoni and works by Schubert transcribed by Liszt. In addition to works by Rachmaninoff and R. Schumann, Babayan presents the world premiere of Andrius Zlabys’ Echoes of light (2019), which was commissioned by The Gilmore.
