Tea Jeličić, piano


As a high school student, young Slovenian pianist Tea Jeličić (born 2000) regularily gathered highest prizes at the national mathematics competitions while also excelling by the piano in numerous concerts and competitions.

In 2019, she won 1st prize at Janez Maticic International Piano Competition and 1st prize at the Slovenian national Piano competition TEMSIG, while also finishing 2nd at the Slovenian national mathematics competition for high school students, winning a silver medal at the 8th European Girls Mathematical Olympiad in Ukraine, and collecting an honourable mention at the 60th International Mathematics Olympiad in Great Britain.

Pursuing her further carrier in classical music, Tea Jeličić is now expanding her repertoire as a piano student with prof. Zuzana Niederdorfer at the Music academy in Graz, Austria.

For the lovers of classical music at 8ECM, Tea Jeličić will deliver one of the last major compositions for solo piano by F. Schubert, the famous A major sonata, D.959. While often neglected in the 19th century, one of Schubert's final three sonatas is now considered as one of the composer's mature masterpieces with rare depth of emotional expression.

The event is sponsored by The Society of Mathematicians, Physicists and Astronomers of Slovenia (DMFA Slovenije)
