Pianist Yiannis Georgiou is set to return to Rialto on 17 February 2023, promising an enthusiastic journey through the magic and pathos of four great composers.
The virtuoso soloist will be playing works by Scarlatti, Debussy, Chopin, and Rachmaninoff, bringing his own flare and style to masterpieces spanning four centuries of great music.
Lovers of the classical repertoire will have the opportunity to enjoy a creative fusion of an impressionist suite, baroque sonatas, romantic nocturnes and passionate Russian preludes.
“I'm always looking for an honest, vivid, engaging performance and aesthetics. The ultimate goal is emotion. So that's the challenge: emotion through a technique driven by expression. The spirit and soul of the composer, who originally put the music on paper, passes through the filters of my own soul and travels to the souls of the audience and wherever else the notes and sounds go”, Yiannis Georgiou says.
The recital is held with the support of the Limassol Municipality.
Acclaimed soloist Yiannis Georgiou was born in London and started playing the piano at the age of six. He spent his childhood in both Cyprus and the UK where he attended the Royal College of Music Junior Department.
He studied at Trinity College of Music in London, with Alexander Ardakov and John Bingham, receiving numerous competition prizes and graduating with the DipTCL Performer’s Diploma. He continued his studies in Moscow, at the Tchaikovsky Conservatoire, initially with Professor Valery Kastelsky, a student of the legendary Heinrich Neuhaus, and finally with Pavel Nersessian. He graduated with the Aspirant Diploma. Yiannis Georgiou is the only Cypriot Pianist to have received this award.
Yiannis has performed as a soloist in the UK, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Switzerland and Germany.
