At our age of uniformity and standardizing, the particular qualities of a phenomenon, event or person become more and more valuable.
For almost two hundred years the craftsmen of Boesendorfer were developing the particular sound of the piano which could be described as “Bösendorfer Sound”. But the orchestra without its musicians would become just a collection of music instruments, however beautiful those instruments would look. It’s the musicians who create, according to their sensitivity and musical skill, the special sonority of the orchestra which is easily identified among hundreds of other sonorities.
In a similar way, the sound of the piano, its “voice”, can be unveiled only by a touch of a Pianist. Only a pianist is able to reveal and make more evident to the audience the best qualities of an instrument: its dynamic range, richness and variety of tone.
The Month of Bösendorfer, the first Bösendorfer Piano Festival in Thailand, is presented by Siam Music Yamaha to promote the perfection of Bösendorfer Piano, as well as to invite the audience to discover and appreciate the celebrated “Bösendorfer Touch” by pianists Dora Deliyska, Dr. Indhuon Srikaranonda, Artas Balakauskas and Sek Thongsuwan.

A Lithuanian pianist Artas Balakauskas, studied at M.K. Ciurlionis School of Arts in Vilnius, Lithuania with E. Gedgaudas and L. Drasutiene. He obtained degrees in Piano Performance and Chamber Music from the prestigious P.Tchaikovsky Moscow Conservatory of Music, where he studied with S. Alumian and V. Krainev. He was later awarded a scholarship from V. Landsbergis Foundation to continue his studies at Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris, where he received the highest diplomas in Piano Performance and Chamber Music.
Artas Balakauskas has won prizes in many International competitions in Europe, i.e. in Usti-nad-Labem, Czech Republic and St Nom-La-Breteche in France.
Artas Balakauskas is very active both as a performer and teacher. He has embarked on concert tours in France, Spain, Lithuania, Ukraine, New Zealand and Germany. He made his debut in Thailand in 1995 and has appeared as soloist with The Bangkok Symphony Orchestra in 2000. He is also a regular participant in European music festivals, i.e. St. Christopher Summer Festival in Vilnius, Music at M.K. Ciurlionis Native House in Druskininkai, and Sugrizimai Music Festival in Vilnius, Lithuania. In addition, he often serves as a jury member in both national and International Youth Piano Competitions.
Presently Artas resides in Bangkok, where he is a Special Piano Instructor at Yamaha Music Academy.
Dora Deliyska has devoted herself to the music of Franz Liszt for a number of years. His profoundly emotional compositions as well as the poetic side of the composer are a source of inspiration for the pianist. With her magnificent CD solo debut with piano works by Franz Liszt (Gramola 98853), the young pianist established herself as one of the most important Liszt interpreters of the young generation. In 2010, the much heeded second solo CD was published with works by Liszt and Chopin (waltzes and ballads). The CD recordings and her live concerts in different countries of Europe, Asia and South America have earned the young pianist international renown.
In April 2011, she held her debut in the famed Vienna Musikverein with a solo programme. A further major success was her debut in South America with the Orquestra de la Ciudad de Los Reyes, resident in Lima, Peru. In September 2010, she played Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor KV 466 there. The interpretation by the pianist, termed a ‘poetic virtuoso’ by the critics, was very positively received.
Dr. Leslie Howard, famous for his recordings of all Liszt’s piano works, wrote in London in 2009 about the young musician: ‘Dora Deliyska’s magnificent recording debut with Liszt was distinguished by a thoughtful and tasteful performance: the sound extends from breathtakingly delicate to musically motivated splendour’.
After her performance in The Netherlands, the pianist, organist and music critic Christo Lelie commented on Dora Deliyska: ‘Dora renders the B minor Sonata in a monumental yet balanced way. She possesses sufficient skill and inner energy to perform these virtuoso pieces. The young Bulgarian pianist has recorded a gorgeous Liszt CD’.
And in the Wiener Zeitung, Edwin Baumgartner remarked on 19 February 2009: ‘Franz Liszt remains the touchstone for the pianist: the substance of the virtuoso pose needs to be sought, and the background of the gigantic keyboard thunderstorm illuminated. Otherwise, everything remains superficial show. The young Bulgarian Dora Deliyska manages to do this not only in the densely composed B minor Sonata, but also in the Schubert, Paganini and Wagner transcriptions, in which she uses her command of technique merely as a means to an end. And this end is lush, warm colours and living structure’.
Dora Deliyska began piano lessons at the age of five. Surrounded by music in her family, she held her first concert at the age of nine. After musical training in her Bulgarian home, she attended the University of Music and the Performing Arts in Vienna, where she was taught by Professors Jürg von Vintschger and Stefan Vladar. In 2010, she graduated with a Master’s degree there in the class of Prof. Noel Flores. The same year, she obtained the postgraduate diploma at the Oxana Yablonskaya Piano Institute in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, Tuscany, Italy.
Her artistic development has been strongly influenced by master classes and individual lessons with renowned musicians such as Dmitri Alexejew, Mikhail Voskresensky, Karl-Heinz Kämmerling, Boris Bloch and others.
Despite her youth, Dora Deliyska can look back on comprehensive concert activity – not only as a soloist and with orchestra, she has also had numerous performances with chamber music ensembles in several European countries, e.g. with Nora Romanoff-Schwarzberg, Benjamin Bernstein, Valya Dervenska and others.
Very conducive to the young pianist’s development have been the scholarships from the Dr. Wolfgang Boesch Foundation in Vienna (2002-2006), the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Art and Culture in 2003, the Erasmus Scholarship in 2004 and, the same year, the one-term scholarship at the Royal Conservatoire in Den Haag (class of Paul Komen). The Dutch Labberte Foundation has also regularly supported the young musician’s training and activities since 2005. In 2007, she was awarded the Josef Windisch Scholarship, and in 2008 she received a scholarship to promote her further studies from the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture.
The musician is frequently invited to festivals and tours. In the years since 1999, she has played, for example, at the ‘Varna Summer Days’ and at the ‘March Music Festival’ in Russe, both in Bulgaria; at the ‘Peter the Great Festival’ in Groningen in The Netherlands; together with the Bulgarian violinist Valya Dervenska at the ‘Europalia 2002’ as well as chamber music concerts also in the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. In 2004, participation in the master class ‘Musica Arvenzis’ held by the Russian Professor Marina Kapazinskaja in Bratislava; the same year, tours to Italy and Croatia. A concert tour in conjunction with the Russian violist Benjamin Bernstein also took her to Croatia and Slovenia. In 2005, she played Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major KV 488 at the ‘Laureate Days’ in her home town of Pleven; in 2005-2007, participation in the ‘Holland Music Sessions’ in Bergen, in 2006 in the ‘Gelderse Musiekzomer’ in Apeldoorn in The Netherlands. A year later, she took part for the first time in the Bruckner Festival in St. Florian in Upper Austria and in the international master class by Prof. Balázs Szokolay in Keszthely, Hungary. She has made frequent performances in the Bösendorfer Hall in Vienna and in the Yamaha Concert Hall. Within the scope of the festival ‘Piano World’ in Groningen, Holland, in 2008 Dora Deliyska played a Liszt recital in Oosterport Music Center. In March of the same year, she contributed Franz Liszt’s 2nd Piano Concerto to the much appreciated cycle ‘The Concertmasters’ under the auspices of the ‘European Music Festival’ in Sofia; her performance was recorded for Bulgarian television. In summer 2011, she once more held a piano recital at the Bruckner Festival in St. Florian with works by Liszt and Schubert as well as at the renowned Bulgarian festival ‘Apolonia’ the same year.
Performances and recordings by the pianist have been broadcast by the Austrian cultural station Ö1, by Dutch national television, by Swiss Radio DRS and by Bulgarian National Radio and Television.
