Lika Bibileishvili

“This debut album from pianist Lika Bibileishvili containing a splendidly performed collection of 20th century works by Prokofiev, Ravel, Sibelius and Bartók on Farao Classics is highly desirable.“
“This high quality playing from Bibileishvili feels fresh and vital and is especially responsive to temperament and attention to dynamic nuance. Recorded at Kupferhaus Planegg, Munich the engineering team provide clarity and apt balance. Bibileishvili’s Steinway model D concert grand has an attractive sound. Written by Yvonne Petitpierre, the booklet essay is first class, both informative and readable.”
“A name that we are certainly going to hear a lot more about in the future, Lika Bibileishvili is in irresistible form.”

Curriculum Vitae

“Lika Bibileishvili is a jewel among the pianists of the young generation. She played my piano cycles KOSMOS and BUCH DER STERNE with a brilliant technique and a sensuous sound that is without equal. Under her hands, every piano becomes a fireworks display.” Wilfried Hiller

Lika was born in Batumi, Georgia. At the early age of 10, she attended the piano class of Prof. Medea Shaladze at the Georgian University of the Arts in Batumi. While studying in Georgia, she already gave many concerts with the Ajara Symphony Orchestra. At the age of 12, she was playing concertos such as Rachmaninov’s First Piano Concerto and performed the Second Piano Concerto by Camille Saint-Saens when aged 14. In 2008, she started studying with Prof. Franz Massinger at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich (HMTM). She changed to Prof. Volker Banfield in 2011, then studied in the piano class of Prof. Antti Siirala from 2014. Especially Volker Banfield is still an important mentor and the intensive work with him has significantly influenced and inspired her musical development.
In 2015, she received her master’s degree with a distinction. She then started in 2016 postgraduate studies at the Mozarteum University Salzburg in Prof. Peter Lang’s class, while also attending masterclasses with Elisso Virsaladze, Ruvim Ostrovsky and Naum Shtarkman (professors from the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory). Dmitri Bashkirov has confirmed her “extraordinary musical and intellectual abilities.
