"While his peers are doing their best to charm everyone around, including the global music industry, Mr Geniušas has embarked on an altogether more serious mission: an agonizing search for a performance style that is fully modern and catching the spirit of the age.” Kommersant Russia
The young Russian-Lithuanian pianist Lukas Geniušas is considered to be one of the most promising young pianists of his generation. He was the recipient of the Silver Medal at the 2010 Chopin International Piano Competition and, in 2012; Lukas was nominated and became the recipient of the German Piano Award in Frankfurt am Main.
Born into a musical family in Moscow in 1990, Lukas has already established an international following both as a soloist and a chamber musician. He has appeared with numerous orchestras including Kremerata Baltica, Hamburg Symphoniker, BBC Scottish Symphony and the Warsaw Philharmonic, with conductors such as Andrey Boreyko, Dmitry Sitkovetsky and Antoni Wit.
His musical interests range from Baroque to works by modern composers and he gives regular solo recitals that reflect this diversity.
His musicality was recognised at an early age. At 15, Lukas was awarded a federal ‘Young Talents’ grant from the Russian Federation and two years later the ‘Gifted Youth of 21st Century’ grant. He has since received many accolades and awards in recognition of his prodigious talent.
