Biography

Hailed for his emotional intensity, bold energy and remarkable musical colours, Sergei Babayan brings a deep understanding and insight to an exceptionally varied repertoire making him one of the greatest pianists of our time. Montreal’s Le Devoir declared, “Babayan is a genius. Full stop.” Born in Armenia into a musical family, Sergei Babayan began his studies there with Georgy Saradjev and continued them at the Moscow Conservatory with Mikhail Pletnev, Vera Gornostayeva and Lev Naumov. After a first trip outside the USSR in 1989, he won several first prizes in major international competitions, including the Cleveland International Piano Competition, the Hamamatsu Piano Competition and the Scottish International Piano Competition.
