Win tickets to concert

ACCLAIMED Italian/ Slovenian pianist Alexander Gadjiev will perform a one-off show in Hobart next month as part of his debut national concert tour – and the ‘Hobart Observer’ has tickets to give away to readers.

26-year-old Gadjiev stole the show at the prestigious Sydney International Piano Competition last year, winning half of all the prizes available to the finalists – a first for any competitor in the event’s 45-year history.

Born into a musical family in Gorizia, Italy, Gadjiev made his concert debut at the age of nine and gave his first solo recital a year later.

He studied at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg and the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin, and won first prize at the Hamamatsu International Piano Competition in 2015.

Audiences can expect a stunning display of virtuosic skills when Gadjiev performs across Australia, playing pieces by Chopin and Schumann and premiering a new work by Australian composer Colin Spiers.

“Exploring the vastness of Australia this year, sharing my music in front of live audiences across the country, meeting the locals and mentoring young talent at master-classes and local schools will be a dream come true for me,” Gadjiev said.

Alexander Gadjiev performs at Hobart Town Hall on Wednesday 5 October.

Tickets are available from theatreroyal.com.au

The ‘Hobart Observer’ has two double-passes to give away, valued at $110 each.

To be in the running, send an email to justine.brazil@corcomms.com. au with “Alexander Gadjiev competition” as the subject, and your name and phone number in the body of the email.

Entries close on 22 September, and winners will be notified by phone.
