Irma Issakadze was born in Tbilisi, Georgia, into one of the most significant musical families of the former Soviet Union. Her debut at the age of nine in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and the Georgian State Symphony Orchestra was the launch of her extraordinary, much-lauded artistic career.

At the age of 14 Issakadze was admitted to the Hochschule für Musik in Munich, Germany, as a protégée of the German pianist Ludwig Hoffmann who encouraged and taught her. She studied under the Russian pianist Vladimir Krainev in Hanover, and her recordings have gained outstanding reviews, including the Goldberg Variations on the Oehms Classics label which Die Zeit described as ‘breathtaking… wonderfully played.’

Issakadze is a passionate supporter of Georgian musical culture and is dedicated to promoting the oeuvres of Georgian composers, many of whom dedicated works to her father, Eldar Issakadze, and aunt, Liana Issakadze.
