Born in Moscow in 1990, Lukas Geniušas started piano studies at the age of five in the preparatory depart- ment of the Chopin Music College in Moscow and went on to graduate with top honours in 2008.
He was born in a family of musicians, a fact which played a major role in Lukas' musical education, par- ticularly through the mentorship of his grandmother, Vera Gornostaeva, a prominent teacher and professor at the Moscow Conservatory.
At the age of 15, he was awarded a “Young Talents” federal grant from the Russian Federation and two years later received the “Gifted Youth of the 21stCen- tury” grant. Lukas has since garnered much praise and many awards in recognition of his talent. Lukas will play with Petras Geniušas, his father. It will be such a rare opportunity to see this family duo together on one stage.
