ANNA GENIUSHENE

Artist’s website
 
“Scampering up and down the keyboard and hurling out handfuls of staccato chords, or gracefully leading the way into folk music realms, she deployed a virtuosity which seemed both joyful and natural.”-Independent

In every major music competition, there always seems to be an artist who stands out, and who emerges as a new artistic “find” in the music world. Anna Geniushene was just such a “find” at the 2019 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow, standing out amongst other participants with her unique and original artistry with her exquisite interpretations and delicate touch.

Geniushene began her solo career at the age of six. She was a finalist at the 2018 Leeds International Piano Competition, and a prize-winner at the Busoni and Dublin International Competitions.

The young artist is active as a recitalist, concerto soloist, as well as chamber musician. She has a collaborative relationship with the Quartetto di Cremona, as well as an active performing career with husband and famed pianist Lukas Geniusas. Geniushene is also director of her own festival in collaborative music-making in Moscow.

We are happy to be presenting the Vancouver debut of this remarkable musician, one who is beginning to make major musical waves.

“Anna Geniushene – impressive in keeping Schumann’s meandering Humoreske under control without losing any of its brilliant pianistic colours.” – The Irish Catholic
