ALINA KIRYAYEVA - PIANIST
Sunday, November 19, 2017 @ 2 pm
Concert pianist and chamber musician Alina Kiryayeva is globally renowned for her potent command of the instrument, as well as her unique interpretations and innovative programming. Just as much, she has been praised for enchanting audiences with philosophical insight and charismatic stage presence.
Kiryayeva gave her first solo recital at age 8 and her solo debut with orchestra at 11. She is one of few classical pianists that completed both Bachelor and Master degrees at The Juilliard School of Music on full scholarship; and was also awarded the Fannie Gottlieb-Harkavi Scholarship and Susan Rose Piano Scholarship. Her awards include First Prize winner of Italy’s Senigallia International Competition, and top prizes in the Grace Welsh International Competition and the California Young Artist International Competition. Kiryayeva has been honored by Ukrainian President Leonid Kravchuk, with the State Award for Achievements in Arts.
