Another favourite from the Beethoven Competition

Marijan Đuzel, piano

2008: 1st prize Croatian Young Virtuoso and Zlatko Grgošević Competitions 
2009: 2nd prize European Piano Teachers Competition
2010: Winner, INA Cultural Scholarship (INA is Croatia’s largest oil company)
2012: Debut with Zagreb Philharmonic performing Beethoven’s Fifth Concerto, The Emperor
2013: Performed twice in Musikverein in Vienna(Brahms and Gläserner Saal).

Marijan was a semi-finalist in the International Beethoven Competition held last year in Vienna. Of all the competitors I watched during the competition, Marijan and Andrey Gugnin were the two most inspiring contestants. We were very fortunate to have Andrey perform for us in March this year and are equally fortunate to have Marijan come to Thailand, exclusively to play for us at Eelswamp
