First Prize Winner of the Sydney International Piano Competition – Andrey Gugnin

For the first time at The Joan the audience be seated onstage for a thrilling once-in-a-lifetime piano experience!
Get up close and personal* with the winner of one of the most iconic piano competitions of today!

The Sydney International Piano Competition is one of the world’s most anticipated events, where talented young pianists compete passionately for international recognition, delivering performances that will define their career. From hundreds of pianists worldwide, 32 virtuosos were selected to battle it out in Sydney through a stunning series of competitive performances. Only one of them wins First Prize. As part of winning First Prize, the First Prize Winner will perform in this special recital at The Joan.

The Sydney International Piano Competition is held just once every four years and is now under the artistic directorship of acclaimed Australian pianist, Piers Lane AO. In 2016, the top honour was given to Russian virtuoso Andrey Gugnin.

Having received a first class musical education in both Russia and now Italy, Andrey is quickly notching up performance credits with some of the world’s leading orchestras in some of the globe’s famous concert halls and we’re delighted local audiences will now have the opportunity to experience his sublime musicality in the magnificent acoustics of the Richard Bonynge Concert Hall right here in Penrith.

“dispatched with incisive clarity and scintillating speed. His rhythmic acuity, lightness of touch and nuanced dynamics realised both the moments of witty caprice and wistful introspection.”

*For the very first time at The Joan, the audience will be seated on stage in the Concert Hall surrounding the piano. Only 150 tickets will be allocated to this concert, and seating will be allocated based on order of booking. Get in quick!
