Lauded for his “fine sensibility and perfectly honed technique,” giving performances “of rare beauty and musical conviction,” Georgy enjoys a performance career that takes him across North America, Asia, and Europe; highlights include appearances at the Berlin Konzerthaus, Het Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Carnegie Hall, and the Verbier, Lucerne, and Toronto Summer Music Festivals. Winner of the Honens and Top of the World Competitions, he has released three recordings: an all-Schubert album; works by Medtner, Mussorgsky, and Prokofiev; and chamber music with the Cecilia String Quartet. Georgy has been artist in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Belgium since 2016 and makes his home in Berlin.
