Hailed for his emotional intensity, bold energy and remarkable levels of color, Sergei Babayan brings a deep understanding and insight to a stylistically diverse repertoire, which includes a performance history of 54 concertos.  Le Figaro has praised his “unequaled touch, perfectly harmonious phrasing and breathtaking virtuosity.”

Highlights of the 2015/2016 season included concerto performances with the Rotterdam Philharmonic conducted by Valery Gergiev and with the Camerata Israel in Tel Aviv; performances at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, and at Bad Kissingen, Germany; recital and concerto performances in duo with Daniil Trifonov at the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia; and a return to Wigmore Hall in London.

In the 2014/2015 season, Mr. Babayan’s schedule included performances in Lugano with Martha Argerich; a return to the Verbier Festival, where he debuted in July 2014; and performances in London at Wigmore Hall.

Since Sergei Babayan’s outstanding protege Daniil Trifonov has won major competitions, he is one of the world’s most soughtafter piano teachers.
