Diabelli Variations, op.120


Gustav Piekut (piano)


Gustav Piekut (b. 1995) is establishing himself as one of the most interesting young classical musicians in Scandinavia.

He has been described by the West-Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung as 'a poet and virtouso at the piano' and 'stunned the audience with his transparent playing and sense of timing' according to Hamburger Abendblatt.

After debuting with the South Jutland Symphony Orchestra aged 12, and appearing two years later as a soloist with the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Gustav Piekut regularly travels across Europe for recital, concerto and festival performances.

In addition to winning four prizes at the Aarhus International Piano Competition in 2017, Gustav Piekut has taken prizes in the Dublin International Piano Competition, Piano Campus Competition Pontoise, Astana Piano Passion, Balys Dvarionas International Music Competition, International Piano Forum Sanok and many others.

He has also won the First Prize at the Danish National Steinway Piano Festival three consecutive times.

Gustav Piekut is supported by the Augustinus Foundation and is a recipient of the Sonning Music Foundationís Talent Award 2018.

He is also a scholarship holder of the German Studienstiftung. He studies with Prof. Klaus Hellwig at the Berlin University of the Arts and is a former student of Gradus, Aarhus.

This is Gustav Piekutís debut recording.
