The 5th Vilnius Piano Festival presents pianists who just a month ago captured laurels at the International Franz Liszt Piano Competition in Utrecht: Dina Ivanova from Russia (3rd prize) and Alexander Ullman from Great Britain (1st prize).

Dina Ivanova studied at the Central Music School in Moscow and is currently furthering her education at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow. She has given concerts in Germany, Hungary, Cuba, Bulgaria, Denmark, Norway, Poland and the USA, as a soloist appeared with Thüringer Philharmonie, the Israel Symphony Orchestra and the Gothenburg Quartet. The pianist has won numerous awards including the 1st prize at the Tel Hai Competition in Israel (2016).

Alexander Ullman studied at the Purcell School in London, the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, and the Royal College of Music in London. As a soloist he has appeared with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Montréal Symphony Orchestra, the New Jersey and Fort Worth symphony orchestras, the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra, Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra, the Budapest Radio Orchestra, and Manchester Camerata. The pianist has given recitals at the Wigmore Hall in London, the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Perth Concert Hall in Australia, as well as in Denmark, France, Spain, China, and the Netherlands among other countries. During his studies Ullman won many awards including 1st prize at the Liszt Competition in Budapest (2011).

Tonight both performers will engulf the audience in Liszt’s inexhaustible ocean of musical musing. Featuring the compositions from various creative periods of the piano genius life, the programme will remind of Liszt’s many-sidedness – diabolically virtuoso, mystical, futuristic, pantheistic, pious, Hungarian… Lisztomans deservedly call him the King of the Piano!
