Justas already flourished into a skilful performer with his own musical identity at the age of eleven when he represented his country at the “Virtuosi per Musica di Pianoforte” International Piano Competition in Czechoslovakia. From this event Justas returned home as triumphant Laureate.
His extraordinary and growing abilities eventually lead him to the Moscow P.Tchaikovsky Conservatoire for graduate and post-graduate studies, both of which he completed with highest honours (CUM LAUDE) studying under Prof Lev Vlassenko and Mikhail Pletnev. After the initial five years of study, Justas’ professor, Lev Vlassenko, found that his young student’s “natural talent had bloomed and he had become undoubtedly an accomplished artist.” Justas’ pianistic and musical abilities were enhanced through his acquaintances with pianist Sviatoslav Richter and Elisso Wirssaladse.
Justas also has performed in solo, chamber music or with orchestras in Bulgaria, Canada, Germany, Russia, United States of America, Sweden, Norway, Czech Republic, Austria, Peru, England, Japan and more.
Justas Dvarionas teaches talented young pianists at the Vytautas Magnus University Music Academy, the M.K. Čiurlionis High School for the Arts and since 2017 as Visiting Piano Teacher at the The Purcell School in London.
He has also held many Master Classes of his own in Germany, Poland, Norway, France, Russia, Japan, Peru, Great Britain, Lithuania and other countries.
Justas Dvarionas is Vice-President of EMCY (European Music Competitions for Youth), and he has served as jury member in many international competitions.
