The 17th Grieg International Piano Competition


On 3rd of September in 2022 in Norway, in beautiful city in Bergen, I got the 1st Prize at the 17th Grieg International Competition. It is definitely one of the most unforgettable experience since my Brahms Competitions in 2019. I thank you to the Grieg competition organization and all the staffs who were working during the competition literally without sleeping. During Corona time it was not possible to take part in any competitions and only my precious youth time was going and it was generally difficult.....But this time I could go to Bergen and could play in front of the wonderful audience, I felt the real atmosphere of the people, and it was amazing.

I sincerely appreciate to this great prize and I will keeping doing my effort to realize the beauty of the music. Especially Grieg's music.
