About

"Set to become one of the truly important artists of his generation.” – Emanuel Ax

Pianist and composer Nicolas Namoradze, whose performances have been hailed by critics as “sparkling… sensitive and coloristic” (New York Times) and “simply gorgeous” (Wall Street Journal), came to international attention in 2018 on winning the triennial Honens International Piano Competition in Calgary, Canada—the largest piano prize in the world. His often sold-out recitals around the world have been met with universal critical acclaim, and the recent release of his debut album featuring works by York Bowen on the Hyperion label has received extraordinary accolades, including Record of the Month in Limelight, Instrumental Disc of the Month in BBC Music Magazine, Editor’s Choice in Gramophone and Editor’s Choice in Presto Classical, while debuting in the UK charts as the #1-selling classical instrumental album.
