The Diva of the Piano: Marina Lomazov

Marina Lomazov has been described by critics as “a diva of the piano” (The Salt Lake City Tribune), a testament to her commanding presence on the stage. Her performances are celebrated not just for their technical brilliance but for their emotional depth and risk-taking, earning her the title of “a mesmerizing risk-taker” by The Plain Dealer, Cleveland. The Chicago International Music Foundation went so far as to call her performances “simply spectacular.” Lomazov's journey has been marked by major victories in some of the world's most prestigious competitions, including the Cleveland International Piano Competition and the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition.

A Global Virtuoso

Lomazov's career is a tapestry of international success, with major debuts across the globe, from New York’s Weill-Carnegie Hall to Shanghai’s City Theater. Her artistry has led her to perform as a soloist with renowned orchestras, including the Boston Pops and the Rochester Philharmonic. New York Times chief music critic Anthony Tommasini described a recent New York performance as “dazzling,” highlighting her ability to captivate audiences worldwide.

A Mentor and Muse

Beyond her accomplishments on stage, Lomazov is a dedicated educator, currently serving as a Professor of Piano at the Eastman School of Music. Her educational journey is marked by prestigious degrees from the Juilliard School and the Eastman School of Music, where she received the Artist’s Certificate, a rare honor for pianists. Lomazov’s commitment to nurturing the next generation of musicians is evident in her role as a jury member for various international piano competitions and her co-founding of the Southeastern Piano Festival and the Vivace Music Foundation.

The Proteges: Linda Lin, Ethan Silva, and Daniel Cezair

The masterclass will showcase the talents of Linda Lin, Ethan Silva, and Daniel Cezair, three promising musicians handpicked for this occasion.
