The higher the standard of pianist the more they will get out of participating, minimum level is AMEB Grade 6 and above. The student, where possible, should be prepared to play from memory and the work performed should be generally ‘classical’ rather than contemporary. Learning opportunities continue by listening to the teaching of the other masterclass students.

Alexander Gadjiev is an internationally recognised concert pianist from Italy/Slovenia who is offering an open one-hour masterclass session at BREC this November.

BREC has places for 4 exceptional young musicians from the South West region who are looking to develop their performance skills to play for Alexander in a 30-minute masterclass and receive tuition on a piece of their choosing.

There is no charge for this masterclass for selected students or for music students, teachers and parents to watch the taught session. This will be an open masterclass session so chosen students will need to be comfortable with playing from memory and in front of an audience.

If you are or know of an exceptional young musician interested in attending a 30-minute masterclass session, we invite you to apply by filling out the form.

Successful applicants will be notified by XX

Alexander made his concert debut at the age of nine, giving his first solo recital a year later. Both his musical family and the eclectic culture of his city of origin Gorizia, a natural crossroads of peoples, cultures and languages, had a strong influence on his natural ability to absorb, process and rework different musical styles and languages.

Alexander was selected for the 2019 – 2021 BBC New Generation Artists Scheme, providing major opportunities for him in the UK and is also an ambassador for the 2025 European Capital of Culture.

Alexander received his Master’s degree at the Mozarteum of Salzburg, under the guidance of Pavel Gililov and his Konzertexamen in Berlin under Eldar Nebolsin. Alexander has performed in the major concert halls of Paris, Venice, Moscow and at esteemed piano festivals around the world.

Acclaimed by SBS as “one of the most promising pianists of the moment,” The Sydney is very proud to present Gadjiev as our newest laureate. The bar is set high for Gadjiev, with other laureates having significant impact on Australian audiences – we think of Andrey Gugnin’s 33-concert tour in 2017 and of Adelaide-based Konstantin Shamray who Australia now proudly calls one of its own.
