Biography

Khatia Buniatishvili (born June 21, 1987) is a Georgian concert pianist. She began studying piano under her mother at age 3. [1] She gave her first concert with the Chamber Orchestra in Tbilissi at the age of 6 and started performing abroad at the age of 10.[1] After that, she began a series of concerts in Switzerland, Georgia, France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Monaco, Italy, Austria, Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark, Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, Israel, USA, etc. Buniatishvili graduated from the Tbilisi Central Music School, then entered Tbilisi State Conservatory in 2004 (Prof. Tengiz Amirejibi).

Buniatishvili dislikes being seen as a child prodigy; she has admiration for many pianists of earlier eras, such as Sergei Rachmaninoff. She admits to being quite influenced by Georgian folk music. Khatia describes the piano as a “symbol of musical solitude”. She chose the piano over the violin despite her perfect pitch. Khatia and her sister learned to play together and she enjoys performing duets with her at home.

She has been regularly invited to take part in various festivals among which: the “Menuhin Festival Gstaad” in 2008, the “Verbier Festival” in 2003 and 2004, the “Progetto Martha Argerich” 2008 in Lugano, the “Gidon Kremer’s Internationales Kammermusikfest Lockenhaus” in Austria - where she performed among others with Gidon Kremer, the “12th International Music Festival “Elba isola musicale d’Europa” - presided by Yuri Bashmet, the “Chamber Music Connect the World 2008” at the Kronberg Academy (Germany)
