Alexander Gadjiev is the First Prize winner of the prestigious and internationally renowned Sydney International Piano Competition. Awarded by an international jury, Gadjiev stole the show in this year’s competition, receiving half of all the prizes available to the finalists – a first for any competitor in The Sydney’s 44 year history.

Gadjiev’s accolades were scattered across his 3recitals – prizes for his programming skills (Best Preliminary Round Recital), audience communication (Best Program Presentation) and pianistic ability (Best Performance of a work by Liszt and Romantic & Classical periods), all highlight the 26 year old’s well-rounded, irrefutable talent and his artistic maturity.

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 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” following his win, The Sydney is very proud to present Gadjiev as our newest laureate. The bar is set high for Gadjiev, with other laureates making their significant and distinctive impacts 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.

The star quality Gadjiev has already shown gives presenting venues just a glimpse of the shimmering experience that lies ahead for Australian audiences in spring 2022.
