Marina Lomazov to Perform for International Piano Series

Marina Lomazov has established herself as one of the most passionate and charismatic performers on the concert scene today. Following prizes in the Cleveland International Piano Competition, William Kapell International Piano Competition, Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition, and Hilton Head International Piano Competition, she has given performances throughout North America, South America, China, England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Russia, Japan and in nearly all of the fifty states in the United States. 

On February 28, Lomazov will bring her talent to the College of Charleston International Piano Series to perform “Kreisleriana” by Robert Schumann, Piano Sonata in F Major by W.A. Mozart and Piano Sonata by Rodion Shchedrin. Listen to a sample of Lomazov in performance.

Before moving to the United States in 1990, Lomazov studied at the Kiev Conservatory where she became the youngest First Prize Winner at the all-Kiev Piano Competition. She holds degrees from the Juilliard School and the Eastman School of Music, the latter bestowing upon her the highly coveted Artist’s Certificate – an honor the institution had not given a pianist for nearly two decades. Learn more about Lomazov.
