“Pianist Ugnius Pauliukonis took my breath away in the RNCM Gold Medal Weekend.
The Magic descended as soon as his hands touched the keys” – Edward Seckerson, editor of the Pianist Magazine.

One of the leading pianists of Lithuania’s new generation, Ugnius Pauliukonis has been performing professionally since the age of six. After studying with Eilina Stropaite, Donaldas Racys and Valentina Berman, in 2010 Ugnius left Lithuania and moved to the United Kingdom to study at the Royal Northern College of Music where he is currently working with Graham Scott and Andrew Wilde as a part of his International Artist Diploma.

Ugnius has won numerous awards, including RNCM Gold Medal, the Schubert and Mark Ray Prizes, the Recital Prize and a prize at the International Amy Brant Piano Competition in Birmingham. Recently Ugnius made his debut at the Wigmore Hall (London) and Bridgewater Hall (Manchester).

As a soloist Ugnius has played with the BBC Philharmonic, Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, Kaunas Symphony Orchestra. He has given solo and chamber music recitals in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and all the Baltic states. In the past Ugnius has worked with famous musicians such as Lang Lang, Jean Efflam-Bavouzet, Matti Raekalio, Stephen Hough, Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Eduardo Delgado, and Nelson Goerner.
