Prof. David Aladashvili

IPM Tbilisi General Manager - Tbilisi State Conservatoire


David Aladashvili, hailed as a “sensitive virtuoso born for the stage,” began taking piano lessons at age eleven, and at fifteen, he was accepted into the prestigious Tbilisi Special Music School, where he earned Georgia’s Presidential Scholarship for Piano Performance. In 2007, David was invited to join the pre-college division of The Juilliard School in New York City. He continued his studies at Juilliard for the next six years, earning several honors, including the Susan W. Rose scholarship. While at Juilliard, David studied under Matti Raekallio and Jerome Lowenthal, receiving his Bachelor’s in 2012 and his Master’s in 2014.


David gave his Carnegie Hall debut in 2010 when he performed a solo recital at the world-renowned Weill Recital Hall. His debut album, entitled “Opus 13,” features an eclectic and inviting grouping of new and old works organized around the number 13, the date of David's birthday in April. The disc includes works of Scriabin and Schumann (specifically his demanding Opus 13, the Symphonic Etudes), as well as thirteen new compositions written especially for David by thirteen promising young composers. In keeping with the theme, the album was released on Friday, December 13th, 2013. The New York Times called his renditions of Scriabin and Schumann “elegant and atmospheric,” while the album boasts “plenty of delights and characterful surprises.”


He often appears as a TV host of several musical programs on the Georgian National Broadcaster, parallel to serving as the Artistic Director of the Tbilisi National Youth Palace.


In 2020, David began pursuing his DMA studies at the Tbilisi State Conservatoire, studying under Professor Manana Doijashvili. He is currently working on finalizing his Doctoral Degree under the tutelage of Professor Manana Gotsiridze and teaching at the Tbilisi State Conservatoire.
