The 1st Prize winner of the Sydney International Piano Competition 2017

Liszt was only 15 when he produced his epochal 12 Etudes d’exécution transcendante in Vienna. As the title rightly claims, it is a masterpiece showcasing the transcendental virtuosity which the composer himself excelled and demonstrated. 2011 saw myriad of the études cycle performed on the stage during Liszt's bicentennial almost creating a trend for anyone who possessed sublime virtuosity to make a try.

These transcendental études certainly has been Andrey Gugnin's old horse which he made into a household name.

An opportunity not to be missed.

This is a dry run for his CD recording in beginning of February 2018.
