Sergei Babayan, Piano

    • Armenian-American pianist Sergei Babayan is included in the Pantheon of the world’s greatest pianists and teachers. The meditative focus and rare stillness of Babayan’s keyboard artistry prompted the Hamburger Abendblatt to liken him to “one of those Japanese calligraphers who contemplate the white page before them in silence until, at the exact right moment, their brush makes its instinctive, perfect sweep across the paper.” Babayan himself has observed that making music should be open to surprises and spontaneous insights, allowing unexpected emotions to emerge and subtle shadings to evolve naturally. A distinguished member of the Juilliard piano faculty and the Cleveland Institute of Music faculty for many years, Babayan has won first prizes in several major international competitions including the Cleveland International Piano Competition, the Hamamatsu Piano Competition, and the Scottish International Piano Competition.
