The Graduate Center Music Program is pleased to share that DMA pianists Nicolas Namoradze won first place and Han Chen won the Raeburn Prize at the 2018 Honens International Piano Competition.
These accomplished DMA pianists represent what the Honens Competition deems “complete artists”:
The Complete Artist is a thoughtful interpreter, a consummate collaborator, an awe-inspiring virtuoso, a communicator, a risk-taking explorer, a dreamer. He/she expresses and interprets ideas from a wide cultural context and keen imagination through performances and programming choices that are informed and seasoned by a fascination for life outside the practice studio. The Complete Artist inspires the heart and engages the intellect. – Honens
