Sandro Gegechkori wordt gezien als een van de grootste Georgische pianotalenten

Dieuwertje Blok in Podium Klassiek

With his overwhelming musicality, Tsotne Zedginidze (2009) has proven at a very young age that he has incredible talent and potential. He started composing at the age of five (for ensembles as well as orchestras) and during his studies became increasingly interested in music of the 20th and 21st centuries. Some of the greatest musicians such as Daniel Barenboim, Jörg Widmann and Giya Kancheli called him one of the most exceptionally gifted musicians of the century. Tsotne performs internationally known pieces as well as his own compositions.

Sandro Gegechkori (2000) is one of the most talked-about representatives of the new generation of the Georgian piano school. He achieved international recognition and success early in his teens, and is now firmly established in the world of classical music. Sandro has won several international competitions, including Maria Canals International Music Competition, Feurich Vienna International Piano Competition and Arno Babajanyan International Piano Competition. In the Netherlands, Sandro is known for his performance at Podium Klassiek and in the Concertgebouw in 2022. Sandro will share his own work as well as little-known compositions by Georgian composers.
