"Babayan is no mere pianist. He is a master-musician for whom the piano is his voice, his orchestra.” – The Scotsman

Sergei Babayan has recently performed with the Rotterdam Philharmonic, the Camerata Israel in Tel Aviv, at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, and in duo with Daniil Trifonov at the Mariinksky Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia, as well as in numerous recital and chamber music engagements throughout the US. He regularly performs with the world’s foremost orchestras, including the London Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Warsaw Philharmonic, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and the New World Symphony. Babayan has won consecutive first prizes in several major international competitions including the Robert Casadesus International Piano Competition, the Hamamatsu Piano Competition, and the Scottish International Piano Competition.

Mr. Babayan's performance will be the opening event of the American Liszt Society's annual conference hosted this year by the Bienen School of Music and will feature works by Liszt and his contemporaries.

Tickets are $30 for the general public and $10 for students with a valid ID.
