Her technical prowess and ability to negotiate Liszt’s showy grandeur is a given, but her sense of his inner world, his wistful, nonchalant poetry (…) sets her apart as one to watch.

The 28-year-old pianist Mariam Batsashvili already ranks among the most promising artists of her generation. She gained international recognition at the 10th Franz Liszt Piano Competition in Utrecht 2014. As BBC New Generation Artist, she made her debuts at the Cheltenham Festival, with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and with the Ulster Orchestra at the BBC Proms. The summer of 2019 saw the release of her first album for Warner Classics and her second album has already been recorded.
