The Cliburn presents Alim Besisembayev
Alim Beisembayev first caught international attention when he took first prize at the inaugural Cliburn International Junior Piano Competition and Festival in 2015, the first Kazakhstan-born pianist to win a Cliburn competition. Beisembayev won the gold medal at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 2021, where he also won the audience prize. Since then, this now 24-year-old London-based artist has debuted with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, BBC Symphony Orchestra, SWR Symphonieorchester Stuttgart, and has released his debut album on Warner Classics. He’s played the Wigmore Hall, Southbank Centre, Oxford Piano Festival, and Chopin Institute in Warsaw, in addition to a tour of Europe, in association with the Steinway Prizewinner Concerts Network, and Korea, with the World Culture Network.
