Pianist and composer Nicolas Namoradze, whose performances have been hailed by critics as
“sparkling… sensitive and coloristic” (New York Times) and “simply gorgeous” (Wall Street
Journal), has given recitals at prestigious venues in several countries around the world. He has
appeared as a soloist with renowned orchestras and conductors in Europe and the Unites States,
and his performances in Hungary, Georgia, Spain and the US have been broadcast on radio and
television. His compositions have been commissioned and performed by leading artists and
festivals in the United States.


Highlights of the current season include performances at New York City’s Chelsea Music Festival
as a featured composer and pianist, recitals in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut as Artist
in Residence at The Drozdoff Society, commissions for ensembles such as the Barkada and
Verona Quartets, and a series of concerts with violinist Rolf Schulte at the Brooklyn Public
Library, Bargemusic and CUNY Graduate Center. Nicolas was recently awarded Budapest’s
“Fidelio Fortissimo” prize for young composers. In the past season he also composed and
produced the soundtracks for Walking Painting, a film by Fabienne Verdier, and Nuit d’opéra à
Aix, a short film made in association with the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence.

After completing his undergraduate studies in Budapest, Vienna and Florence, Nicolas moved to
New York for his Master’s at Juilliard. He now pursues his Doctorate at the CUNY Graduate
Center holding the Graduate Center Fellowship. His teachers have included Emanuel Ax,
Yoheved Kaplinsky, Zoltán Kocsis, Matti Raekallio and Elisso Virsaladze in piano, and John
Corigliano in composition. Nicolas serves on the faculty of Queens College. He is also on the
Executive Advisory Council of The Drozdoff Society as Special Project Leader, developing
curricula for courses in piano and composition for its partnerships with El Sistema-based music
schools.
