This concert of the Fifth Vilnius Piano Festival stands out for its wide stylistic range (from Bach to contemporary composer Kapustin) and a momentous theme – the variations both as a music form and, in a wider sense, as a reflection of development, evolution, change and motion in time. In this context we will meet pianists of three generations sharing one stage. Ilana Vered is one of today’s leading piano stars. At the age 13 she won an Israeli government grant to study at the Paris Conservatoire, where she was a disciple of the eminent pianist Vlado Perlemuter and Jeanne-Marie Darré. She graduated cum laude from the Paris Conservatoire at the age 15. Later, Vered completed her studies at the Juilliard School in New York City. She was one of the first winners of the Young Concert Artists International Auditions and received a grant from the Martha Baird Rockefeller Foundation for a major tour of Europe. During her fruitful career she has appeared as a soloist with New York, Boston, London, Amsterdam, Japanese NHK and other celebrated symphony orchestras, collaborated with such great conductors as Leopold Stokowski, Zubin Mehta, Sergiu Comissiona, Raymond Leppard, Lawrence Foster, Matthias Bamert and Mariss Jansons, participated in the world’s major music festivals. Vered has been lauded as a chamber musician, and especially praised for her collaboration with Tokyo String Quartet, cellist Sharon Robinson, etc.

Sasha Starcevich is currently enjoying a rewarding career as an international performer and teacher. Since 2003, when he earned his Doctoral Degree from Yale University (USA), the pianist has been performing and leading master classes at home, in Canada, China and Europe. He serves as a professor in several universities in the USA and is a director of several international festivals. Starcevich was the first teacher of Canadian pianist Tristan Teo, the youngest performer in today’s concert, whose patron today is Ilana Vered. Currently, Teo studies with the renowned pedagogue Jerome Lowenthal in the Juilliard School. The pianist is a winner of several prestigious competitions (Gina Bachauer, Hilton Head, etc.), as a soloist has appeared with various orchestras in the USA, has given recitals in Canada, the USA and Europe. In addition to performing career he teaches and composes.
