Inga Liukaityte is a Lithuanian pianist based in the UK. Praised for the rich colours, intelligence, and precision of her performances, she is active as a soloist, chamber musician, and teacher.
Inga has won prizes in international piano competitions in the UK, Italy, Czech Republic, Romania, Greece, France and Lithuania. Her most recent success was winning the 1st prize at the competition ‘Music without limits’ in Lithuania earlier last year. Among her honours are commendations for her international musical achievements from Lithuanian President Valdas Adamkus and the Mayor of her hometown, Kaunas.
Inga has performed in prestigious venues such as the Barbican Hall in London, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, and Edinburgh Fringe. She regularly gives solo and chamber recitals in churches around the UK, including St James Piccadilly, St Mary’s Perivale, Southwark Cathedral and others. One of her latest projects, ‘Music in times of turmoil’, combines solo piano music with storytelling to explore the difficult history of Lithuania, including its occupation by the Soviets and the struggle for independence.

In the same year, Inga performed at Kaunas State Philharmonic, presenting a programme of solo piano pieces combined with her own poetry.
