Nathalia Milstein (France)

This tour sees the return to Ireland of the young French pianist Nathalia Milstein, who swept to victory in the 2015 Dublin International Piano Competition with what one critic described as an “electrifying” performance of Prokofiev’s Second Piano Concerto. While possessing a phenomenal technique, Nathalia has also been lauded for her wonderfully expressive, heartfelt playing and has quickly developed a reputation as an outstanding chamber musician in addition to her solo performances.

Nathalia gave two recitals as part of the 2015/2016 Steinway Celebration Series which finishes on June 6th, and recently gave her début recital at Carnegie Hall. She has also performed for French television and Dutch radio and won prizes at numerous competitions, including 1st Prize at the “Flame“ Youth Competition in Paris and 1st Prize in the Manchester International Concerto Competition For Young Pianists. Heavily influenced by the Russian pianistic school, her repertoire features many works by Romantic and early 20th-century composers.
