A pianist whose reputation has achieved new heights in recent years, Sergei Babayan has become a favourite with Verbier audiences; this is one of three appearances he makes at the 2020 Festival. Born in Armenia and now an American citizen, he has been praised by Le Figaro for his “unequalled touch, perfectly harmonious phrasing and breathtaking virtuosity,” while Montreal’s Le Devoir has written that “Sergei Babayan is a genius. Period.” His ambitious and richly varied recital programme embraces works by Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Schubert and the contemporary Lithuanian pianist-composer Andrius Žlabys.
