The Lithuanian pianist Evelina Puzaite is the winner of the Abstract Securities Landor Competition 2006. Her debut release is a recital of music that admirably showcases her extraordinary technique. The repertoire includes Liszt’s beautiful Trois Études de concert and Rachmaninov’s Moments musicaux, alongside Kodaly’s entrancing Dances of Marosszék, based on Transylvanian folksongs and perhaps better known in the version for orchestra.
Evelina Puzaite is the recipient of numerous awards, including First Prize at the Rubinstein Piano Competition in France and the Tel-Hai International Piano Competition in Israel, and has performed throughout Lithuania and across the rest of Europe as well as in Russia, Israel and the USA.
She has recently undertaken critically acclaimed performances at the Barbican, Wigmore Hall and Royal Festival Hall and appeared at the opening performance of the Brighton Festival in 2007.
