Alexia Mouza-Arenas

This year proved to be highly successful for the outstanding pianist Alexia Mouza-Arenas. On 22 December 2015 the Athens Academy awarded her the Eleni T. Mykoniou Prize of € 3,000 in cash. On 4 May 2015 she won first prize in the Spain’s top piano competition the Delia Steinberg Competition, where among other things she played Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Sonata. She also achieved distinction in Warsaw’s 17th Chopin Competition, the world’s most important Piano Competition which was held in October 2015. She reached round 3 of this acclaimed event. It’s the first time in the last 30 years that a Greek has taken part in the event.

Her final major success came in December when she won 3rd prize at the 9th Hamamatsu International Piano Competition, Japan, out of 87 young pre-selected soloists. In the past, the scholar has also won the 2nd prize at the Val Tidone International Piano Competition (2009) and 1st prize at the Giorgos Thymis International Competition (2008).

Alexia Mouza-Arenas was born in Athens in 1989 and despite her youth has also appeared at some of Europe’s, Asia’s and the USA’s top festivals and concert halls. She has also collaborated with many distinguished orchestras and has already recorded two albums.
