TBILISI PIANO FEST 2022 - Tbilisi hosted the Third TBILISI PIANO FEST. The idea of the festival is to bring together each year the world's leading musicians and pedagogues. Talented young pianists are given the opportunity to take part in interactive musical events and master classes, and to acquire an exceptional musical experience. Guests this year were pianists from New York, Paris, Zurich, Madrid, Vienna and Berlin, as well as the Georgian pianists Edisher Savitski, Sandro Gegechkori and Irma Gigani. The renowned Ukrainian-born pianist Konstantin Lifschitz also took part in the festival. The festival was held at different venues: the Tbilisi State Conservatoire, the Parliamentary Library, and master classes took place at the National Palace. For the final two days of the event, open air concerts were held on Orbeliani Square, which were led by the founder and artistic director of the PIANO FEST Dudana Mazmanishvili, together with the Georgian National Symphony Orchestra, French-Cypriot virtuoso pianist Cyprien Katsaris, and the world-famous German conductor Moritz Gnan.
