Russian pianist Vazgen Vartanian will be performing in Dubai as part of the World Classical Music Series presented by M Premiere in collaboration with the Dubai Concert Committee. The event is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Svyatoslav Richter, who was considered one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. Vazgen Vartanian was born in Moscow, Russia. He graduated from The Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatory and completed a Professional Studies Program at the Juilliard School in New York. His teachers were such famous musicians as professors Lev Vlassenko, Dmitri Sakharov and Jerome Lowenthal.
Vartanian's performance charms as he possesses a special gift and has unconditional ownership of the audience. All his sounds are alive, seeming to come not only out of his fingers but mainly from his heart. His repertoire includes almost all times, directions, genres and forms. Featuring a striking sense of style, Vartanian, however, has created his own, completely unique interpretations of classical music, challenging the conventional interpretations of the patterns.
Vartanian will perform on December 12 at The One&Only Royal Mirage, Royal Ballroom. Doors open at 7pm; Performance starts at 8pm. Tickets are Dhs250, Dhs350, and Dhs550.
