The winner of second prize at the 2005 International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna, Austria, Gabrielius Alekna has appeared as a soloist with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Juilliard Orchestra, and the New Amsterdam (New York), as well as with all major orchestras in his native Lithuania. Daniel Barenboim recently recognised him as ‘a highly gifted pianist and musician’. His recording of complete Mots by Vytautas Bacevičius was released in early 2012 on the British label Toccata Classics, and involved collaborations with the two-time GRAMMY®-winning producer Judith Sherman and the three-time GRAMMY®-nominated pianist Ursula Oppens. He has presented solo performances at venues such as the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, New York, the Steinway Hall, New York, the National Gallery in Washington DC, the Musikverein, Vienna, and the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Hall. Gabrielius Alekna has garnered more than a dozen top prizes in competitions on both sides of the Atlantic, such as the Hilton Head (United States), Maria Canals (Spain), and the Čiurlionis (Lithuania) International Piano Competitions. He is a Visiting Professor at the Music Academy of Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas, Lithuania, and has co-founded the Birštonas Summer Arts Academy in Birštonas, Lithuania. Born in Vilnius, Lithuania, the pianist began his music studies at the age of five. After graduation from the Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis Arts Gymnasium in Vilnius, he continued his studies at the Lithuanian Music Academy. In 1996, Gabrielius Alekna was invited to attend The Juilliard School, where he studied with Jerome Lowenthal, receiving bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in music.
