At just 24 years old, Mariam Batsashvili already ranks among the most promising young pianists of her generation.
She gained international recognition at the 10th Franz Liszt Piano Competition in Utrecht 2014, where she won First Prize as well as the Junior Jury Award and the Press Prize. “Winner Batsashvili turns every phrase into something special”, headlined Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad, and the international Jury called her a “complete artist” with a “tremendous touch” and “sincere emotion”.
See Mariam perform in the brand new Concert Hall at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire as part of BBC Radio 3's New Generation Artists season 2017-18. This concert will be recorded for broadcast at a later date.
