“Those who experience the Georgian pianist Lika Bibileishvili for the first time in a concert will not only marvel at the physical power with which the girly dainty person balances out the most difficult chunks of the concert business. He, like the author of these lines, will be especially stunned by the almost vivid clarity with which the pianist makes the emotional and intellectual dimensions of the respective compositions tangible and brings them together. The fact that Schumann’s “Symphonic Etudes” are not only a masterpiece of romantic fantasy, but also a work of variation of symphonic greatness, was seldom to be found anywhere more alive than in Lika Bibileishvili’s concerts. And Ravel’s “Gaspard de la nuit” arises from her in a night-black luminous brilliance, which acts like a fulfillment of the term “transcendental virtuosity” invented by the composer for this piece. Among her teachers in Georgia and Germany, Lika Bibileishvili has developed a vast repertoire from Bach to Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt, Debussy, Ravel and Rachmaninoff to Scriabin, Bartok, Prokofiev, Enescu and Ligeti. In the world premières of contemporary piano works, which were entrusted to her in Munich, she was astonished by the lightness with which she intertwines complicated rhythms and makes music out of minimalist hints. It’s time for the music world to discover this extraordinary musical personality. ” Gottfried Knapp
