Alexander Gadjiev is the First Prize winner of the prestigious and internationally renowned Sydney International Piano Competition (The Sydney). Awarded by an international jury, Gadjiev stole the show in this year’s competition, receiving half of all the prizes available to the finalists; a first for any competitor in The Sydney’s 44-year history.

Gadjiev’s accolades were scattered across his three recitals: prizes for his programming skills (Best Preliminary Round Recital), audience communication (Best Program Presentation) and pianistic ability (Best Performance of a work by Liszt and Romantic & Classical periods). All of these highlight the 26-year old's well-rounded, irrefutable talent and his artistic maturity.

Born in Gorizia, near Italy's border with Slovenia, Alexander made his concert debut at the age of nine, giving his first solo recital a year later. He has studied in Salzburg and Berlin and performed in many of the world's great musical centres. His Winner's Tour of Australia, will see him perform some of the best-loved piano music of Chopin, as well as Schumann's grand and noble, Fantasie (Fantasy) in C major.
