Narek Hakhnazaryan, who completed New England Conservatory’s Artist Diploma program last month as a student of Laurence Lesser, has received the coveted €20,000 Gold Medal Award in cello at the XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Hakhnazaryan also received the Audience Prize. In addition, at the conclusion of the second round of competition last week, he was honored by the jury for “Best chamber concerto performance.” He will perform in a Winners’ Gala Concert with an orchestra conducted by Valery Gergiev in Moscow on July 1. His many performances in Boston during his NEC days include one which garnered a rave review from BMInt here. Bravo, Narek, and Congratulations!
