Georgijs Osokins


Georgijs Osokins gained international attention through his participation at age of 19 in the 2015 Chopin Competition where his performances received either superlatives or led to controversy.

He was a clear audience favourite and the most discussed competitor when he was dubbed by critics as “exceptional and unpredictable.” Even before the finals, he walked away with opportunities often reserved just for prizewinners as concert invitations started pouring in for a solo recital at the prestigious “Chopin and His Europe” festival in Warsaw and for his first tour of Japan, as well as invitations from three continents for concerts and recordings.

These included performances at the NOSPR Concert Hall in Katowice, the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre Hall, Zaryadye Concert Hall in Moscow and recitals in Switzerland, Germany, the United States, Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
