In 2019 George Harliono was a prize-winner at the YCAT International Auditions at Wigmore Hall, and the only British pianist to be selected for the Tchaikovsky Competition. Previous awards include top prizes at the Grand Piano Competition in Moscow (2016), the Gina Bachauer (Utah 2016), Aarhus (Denmark) and Dinu Lipatti (Bucharest) Competitions.
As soloist George has appeared with the Marinsky Orchestra conducted by Valery Gergiev, the Moscow State, Tatarstan National, Sochi Symphony, Tyumen Philharmonic and New Millenium Chicago Orchestras. He has given recitals in the Scherzo series in Madrid, Berlin Philharmonie and Royal Albert Hall, and collaborated with Lang Lang and Denis Matsuev.
Recent highlights include recitals at the Konzerthaus Vienna, Duszniki Chopin Festival, Russian Academy of Arts and Wimbledon Festival. He appeared as soloist with the Musica Viva Orchestra (Moscow), Jurmala Festival Orchestra (Latvia) and Firebird Orchestra (London).
Born in London, in 2017 George became the youngest student ever to take up a scholarship at the Royal College of Music. George is YCAT’s inaugural Duet Group Artist.
