NICOLAS NAMORADZE

Pianist and composer Nicolas Namoradze, whose performances have been hailed by the New York Times as “sparkling…sensitive and coloristic,” has given recitals worldwide, appearing as a soloist in Europe and the US. After completing his undergraduate studies in Budapest, Vienna, and Florence, Nicolas moved to New York for his Master’s at Juilliard. He is now a doctoral student at the CUNY Graduate Center. Nicolas serves on the faculty of Queens College and is on the Executive Advisory Council of The Drozdoff Society as Special Project Leader.

Highlights of Namoradze’s current season include performances at New York City’s Chelsea Music Festival, recitals in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut as Artist in Residence at The Drozdoff Society, and a series of concerts with violinist Rolf Schulte at the Brooklyn Public Library, Bargemusic, and CUNY Graduate Center. Namoradze was recently awarded Budapest’s Fidelio Fortissimo prize for young composers and won the 2018 International Honens competition. In the past season he also composed and produced the soundtracks for Walking Painting, a film by Fabienne Verdier, and Nuit d’opéra à Aix, a film made in association with the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence.
