The Performing Arts Center will present award-winning pianist Gleb Ivanov on Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. in Ramsey Concert Hall. Tickets are $25 or free for UGA students with valid UGA ID card.

 Prior to winning first prize in the 2005 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Ivanov won the top prizes at the 1994 and 1996 International Classical Legacy Competitions in Moscow, the Laureate Prize at the 1997 Moscow International Festival for Young Soloists and the prize for best performance of a Beethoven sonata at the first International Vladimir Horowitz Competition in Kiev, Ukraine, in 1995.  

The young pianist already has performed in Carnegie Hall in New York and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., in addition to playing with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Lincoln Center. Among his frequent re-engagements are concerts at the Louvre Museum in Paris, Princeton University, the Paramount Theater in Vermont and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.

A native of Moscow, Ivanov was born into a family of musicians and began to accompany his father’s vocal recitals at age 8.  He graduated from the Moscow Conservatory and went on to earn his master’s degree from the Manhattan School of Music. Ivanov was a protégé of the late Mstislav Rostropovich.

Ivanov’s Athens recital will include works by Haydn, Schubert, Rachmaninov and Lizst. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the Performing Arts Center box office at 706-542-4400.
