“Geniušas plays with a prizewinner’s brilliance, yet with a mature ability to recreate a work’s architecture, and an expressiveness that doesn’t overtly draw attention to itself.” – The Guardian, United Kingdom

Lukas Geniušas is among the many bright stars performing at this year’s Macao International Music Festival. At only 20, he has won the Second Prize at the 16th International Frédéric Chopin Piano Competition in 2010 and five years later, the Second Prize at the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 2015.

Born into a family of musicians, this played a major role in Lukas’ musical education, particularly through the mentorship of his grandmother, Vera Gornostaeva, a prominent teacher and professor at the Moscow Conservatory. Lukas started his piano studies at the age of five at the preparatory department of Frédéric Chopin Music College in Moscow, where he graduated with top honours. Lukas has appeared with numerous orchestras including the BBC Scottish Symphony, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, and the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, as well as under the batons of conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Mikhail Pletnev, to name a few. His international career has taken Lukas to prestigious venues and festivals throughout the world.
