Pianist and composer Nicolas Namoradze came to international attention upon winning the triennial Honens International Piano Competition in 2018—one of the largest and most prestigious competition prizes in classical music. The Calgary Herald called him “unparalleled,” and “a pianist’s pianist.” After completing his undergraduate studies in Budapest, Vienna, and Florence, Nicolas moved to New York to obtain his master’s degree at The Juilliard School. He now pursues his doctorate at the CUNY Graduate Center, where he holds the Graduate Center Fellowship.
In the words of the legendary Emanuel Ax, pianist Nicolas Namoradze is “set to become one of the truly important artists of his generation.” Don’t miss this extraordinary Gardner Museum debut, which features some of Namoradze’s own compositions, along with Bach, Scriabin, and Canadian composer Alexina Louie.
