PALLAVI MAHIDHARA πιάνο

Ευρέως αναγνωρισμένη για την καλλιτεχνική της ευελιξία, η Pallavi Mahidhara χαρακτηρίζεται από μουσική διορατικότητα που είναι εξαιρετικά ώριμη, και διακρίνεται για την εκπληκτική της τεχνική και τη χαρισματική σκηνική της παρουσία. Έχει εμφανισθεί σε ρεσιτάλ και ως σολίστ με ορχήστρες ανά το παγκόσμιο, σε αίθουσες όπως, Kimmel Center και Verizon Hall της Φιλαδέλφειας, Kennedy Center της Ουάσιγκτον, Symphony Center του Σικάγο, Auditorio Nacional de Música της Μαδρίτης, Teatro del Lago της Χιλής, Casa de la Música του ντε Κίτο στο Εκουαδόρ, Εθνικό Κέντρο Καλών Τεχνών της Μουμπάι, Εθνικό Μέγαρο Μουσικής του Πεκίνου, στις αίθουσες συναυλιών του Δημαρχείου του Χονγκ Κονγκ και του Δημαρχείου του Κέιπ Τάουν, Monnaie του Παρισιού και Salle Molière της Λυών, Victoria Hall της Γενεύης και Μεγάλη Αίθουσα της Φιλαρμονικής Ντμίτρι Σοστακόβιτς της Αγίας Πετρούπολης.

Η Pallavi Mahidhara είναι νικήτρια του Δεύτερου Βραβείου και του Βραβείου του Κοινού στον Διεθνή Διαγωνισμό Πιάνου της Γενεύης το 2014, και του Δεύτερου Βραβείου στον 6ο Διεθνή Διαγωνισμό Προκόφιεφ στην Αγία Πετρούπολη, το 2012. Έχει παράλληλα κερδίσει βραβεία στον διαγωνισμό Steinway Förderpreis στο Βερολίνο και στις Εθνικές Ακροάσεις Astral Artists στη Φιλαδέλφεια, και έχει τιμηθεί κατ’ επανάληψη με το Βραβείο Sobresaliente από τη Βασίλισσα Σοφία της Ισπανίας. Το 2008, απέσπασε το Τέταρτο Βραβείο, το Βραβείο του Κοινού και το Βραβείο για την Ερμηνεία Ρομαντικού Κοντσέρτου στον Διεθνή Διαγωνισμό Πιάνου UNISA, ενώ η διεθνούς φήμης Ακαδημία Verbier στην Ελβετία, της απένειμε, σε ηλικία μόλις 15 ετών, το Βραβείο του πιο Υποσχόμενου Πιανίστα και την Υποτροφία Davidson, ύψους $25,000, για τα εξαιρετικά επιτεύγματά της στον χώρο της μουσικής.

Η Pallavi Mahidhara έκανε το ντεμπούτο της με ορχήστρα σε ηλικία 10 ετών, ερμηνεύοντας το Κοντσέρτο για Πιάνο Έργο 21 του Μότσαρτ στο Φεστιβάλ Ravinia του Σικάγο, και έκανε την πρώτη της εμφάνιση με μεγάλη ορχήστρα στην ηλικία των 14, όταν συνέπραξε με τη Συμφωνική Ορχήστρα της Ουάσιγκτον. Έκτοτε, έχει εμφανισθεί ως σολίστ με σημαντικές ορχήστρες ανά το παγκόσμιο, και από το 2008, επιστρέφει κάθε χρόνο στη Νότιο Αφρική για ρεσιτάλ και συναυλίες.

Τα μουσικά ενδιαφέροντα της Mahidhara καλύπτουν ένα ευρύ φάσμα – από το κλασικό στο σύγχρονο ρεπερτόριο και πάρα πέρα. Έχει συνεργαστεί επανειλημμένα με το πολυβραβευμένο με Γκράμι σύνολο Eighth Blackbird στο Διπλό Σεστέτο του Στιβ Ράιχ και με το Curtis 20/21 Contemporary Ensemble στο Oiseaux Exotiques του Μεσιάν, και έχει συμπράττει τακτικά σε μουσική δωματίου με μέλη της Φιλαρμονικής της Νέας Υόρκης, της ορχήστρας Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, της Φιλαρμονικής του Λονδίνου και της Ορχήστρας Δωματίου της Βιέννης.

Η Pallavi Mahidhara σπούδασε στην Ανώτερη Σχολή Μουσικής Βασίλισσας Σοφίας στην Ισπανία υπό τον Dimitri Bashkirov. Το 2010, αποφοίτησε με Πτυχίο Μουσικής και ειδίκευση στην Ερμηνεία του Πιάνου από το Curtis Institute of Music, όπου σπούδασε υπό τον Ignat Solzhenitsyn, και ολοκλήρωσε τις μεταπτυχιακές της σπουδές στην Ανώτατη Μουσική Ακαδημία Χανς Άισλερ του Βερολίνου, όπου σπούδασε υπό τον Eldar Nebolsin.
