Speaking about Eva Gevorgyan, her teacher Natalia Trull says that “Eva is a thoughtful person, a musician with tremendous abilities and unbounded perspectives. Her repertoire could be envied by any adult pianist, and with regard to her serious attitude to study and the ability to learn she is unequalled in my class.” A prize-winner at a huge number of international competitions, among them the Van Cliburn Competition in Fort Worth, and a participant in a vast number of music festivals, Eva is coming to St Petersburg for the first time and will give a recital, and will also be performing Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with the Mariinsky Orchestra under Valery Gergiev. The programme for her recital evening comprises works by Chopin and Liszt, prominent among them being Nocturne Op. 27 No 1 and the Fourth Scherzo by Chopin and Liszt’s Rhapsodie espagnole – pieces which require not just dazzling virtuoso skills and artistry but also an understanding of the subtleties of Romantic music.
