Violinist Lisa Batiashvili Launches Foundation

The Georgian-born German violinist's new initiative aims to support young musicians in Georgia who lack the financial support to embark on a professional career

In conjunction with a local partner, The Tsinandali Festival, The Lisa Batiashvili Foundation will create artistic opportunities for Georgian musicians and help them develop on an international level.

Scholarships and funding will be personally selected and granted by Batiashvili, along with the foundation’s artistic advisory board, all of whom are established figures of the international music scene. Musicians wanting to apply can submit their applications yearly. 

"In these difficult times, in which the pandemic has ravaged and restricted possibilities for artists on every imaginable level, the younger generation is especially in need of support," a statement by the Foundation reads. "Young, up-and-coming artists, in particular, are facing drastic and consequential uncertainty in their immediate future. In times of crisis, necessary help is in short supply. This is all the more reason for donors and partners of the Lisa Batiashvili Foundation to contribute, focusing their efforts and sustainably shaping the future of music."

A graduate of the Hamburg Musikhochschule, Batiashvili is a former first prize winner at the Sibelius International Violin Competition — and currently serves as Artistic Director of Audi Sommerkonzerte, Ingolstadt.
