Venue: Kimbell Art Museum Renzo Piano Pavilion
“Geniushene played beautifully with an exquisite touch and almost an infinite tonal palette.”
– La Scena
Anna Geniushene’s fresh, layered, and powerful interpretations defined her participation at the 2022 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition—and won her the coveted silver medal and the adoration of fans around the globe. And the critics couldn’t get enough: “powerhouse sound, forceful musical personality, and sheer virtuosity…had this critic on the edge of his seat” (Musical America); “a fresh version…that had this listener hanging on every bar” (La Scena); “I couldn’t help but equate Anna Geniushene’s seasoned pianism to [Van] Cliburn at his best” (Gramophone).
Her inaugural season as a Cliburn winner included recital appearances at the Grand Teton Music Festival, Festival International de la Roque d’Anthéron, and across the United States; a tour of Japan with pianist Andrey Gugnin; piano duo concerts with Wu Han and Dmytro Choni at Wolf Trap and La Musica Festival; and engagements with the Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra and Taipei Symphony Orchestra.
She now returns to Fort Worth for her official Cliburn Concerts debut in two intimate nights at the Kimbell.
