Alexander Gadjiev

Alexander Gadjiev is the First Prize winner of the prestigious and internationally renowned Sydney International Piano Competition (The Sydney). 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 three recitals – 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.
