Lika Bibileishvili was born in Batumi, Georgia, in 1988. She already fell in love with the piano as a small child. Lika Bibileishvili’s parents encouraged this passion and enabled her to take her first piano lessons at the age of four. By the time she was a teenager, her dream profession was cast in stone: she wanted to be a concert and solo pianist, and nothing else.
While studying in Georgia, Lika Bibileishvili already gave numerous concerts with the Ajara Symphony Orchestra. At the age of 12, she was playing works such as Rachmaninov’s First Piano Concerto, and at 14, she performed the Second Piano Concerto by Camille Saint-Saëns.
In 2008, she moved to Munich, Germany, and continued her studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts under the professors Franz Massinger, Volker Banfield and Antti Siirala. In 2015, she received her master’s degree with distinction.
Lika Bibileishvili has attended courses and masterclasses with Eliseo Virsuladze, Ruvim Ostrovsky, Naum Sharkman and Dimitri Bashkirov.
“What fascinates me about the piano is its unlimited possibilities of sound and harmony. It is one of the most perfect and important instruments that exists in the world of music. I would like to inspire my listeners with my deeply-felt music. My aim is to make every note reach people’s hearts.”
On her début CD, Lika Bibileishvili presents some of her favourite pieces with grace, emotion and stylistic aplomb.
