Lukas Geniušas piano

Great Guild
14:00 Saturday

The daytime concerts of the RĪGA JŪRMALA Music Festival invite new talent from the classical music world who, after victories in prestigious competitions, are now active performers on the world’s leading stages.

Pianist and silver medal winner of the Tchaikovsky and Chopin competitions, Lukas Geniušas continues the Russian piano tradition at the highest level. “Geniušas plays with a prizewinner’s brilliance, yet with a mature ability to recreate a work’s architecture, and an expressiveness that doesn’t overtly draw attention to itself.” writes British newspaper The Guardian.

Concert programme:
Frédéric CHOPIN Mazurkas
Frédéric CHOPIN Piano Sonata No. 3 in B minor Op. 58
Sergei PROKOFIEV 10 Pieces for Piano op. 12
Leonid DESYATNIKOV 12 Preludes from Songs of Bukovina
