Nadejda Vlaeva (piano)

Nadejda Vlaeva was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and began playing the piano at the age of five. She studied with Anton Dikov, Jan Wijn, Ruth Laredo and Lazar Berman, whom she considers her mentor. Nadejda Vlaeva’s playing has been acclaimed wherever she has appeared. Lazar Berman called her talent ‘God-given’; Maestro Hans Graf observed that ‘her musicality and the depth of her interpretation amazed me’. Arnold Steinhardt, leader of the Guarneri String Quartet, praised her as ‘one of those people of extraordinary ability whom we hope for but rarely see’. She has performed internationally, giving solo recitals and concerto performances throughout Europe and North America.

Among her major awards are First Prize at the Liszt Competition in Lucca, Italy, and Third Prize at the International Liszt Competition in Budapest. She has worked with the Bulgarian composer Dimiter Christoff, presenting his piano music on radio and CD. Her second CD, of piano music by Liszt, was released on the MSR Classics label and won the International Grand Prix ‘Liszt’ du Disque. In 2002 she recorded the soundtrack for the documentary film In Search of Cezanne, produced by Academy Award-winner Allan Miller. A disc of Chopin works for piano and orchestra on Gega New was praised for its extraordinary beauty in International Record Review, while a disc entitled ‘A Treasury of Russian Romantic Piano’, with works by Bortkiewicz, Medtner, Liadov, Scriabin, Rebikov, Rachmaninov and Lyapunov, has garnered rave reviews in Gramophone, International Record Review, BBC Music Magazine, American Record Guide and Pianist.M

Ms Vlaeva currently resides in New York where she has performed in the Carnegie Weill Recital Hall, the Rose Hall at Lincoln Center and at Merkin Recital Hall.
