Winners of the International Balys Dvarionas Piano & String Competition will perform at the 3rd Viln

From 16th until 30th of November in Lithuanian National Philharmonic the 3rd Vilnius Piano Music Festival is taking place.

It seems that introduction of the performers of younger generation and winners of various competitions has become a tradition of the Vilnius Piano Music Festival. The 2nd Festival (2011) presented an impressive Gala concert-project Night of Liszt 2011. The concert programme featured three winners of prestigious Liszt Piano Competitions – Masataka Goto and Alexander Ullman (first-prize winners in Utrecht and Budapest competitions, 2011) and Gábor Farkas (first-prize winner in Liszt Competition in Weimar, 2009).

This year, the Festival presents winners of the International Balys Dvarionas Piano & String Competition (2012): Latvian nine-year-old violinist Daniils Bulajevs, winner of Grand Prix in A category; Lithuanian violinist Rūta Mažolytė, winner of Grand Prix in C category and recipient of EMCY prize; Japanese pianist Yukine Kuroki, winner of Grand Prix in B category. The list of awards of the fifteen-year-old Japanese pianist includes first prizes in the Astana Piano Passion and Hanói international piano competitions as well as silver medal in International Chopin Piano Competition in Asia.

The concert will take place on Sunday, 24 November 2013, 16.00 in Lithuanian National Philharmonic Hall
