Ruben Dalibaltayan was born in Yerevan, Armenia. After completing music school in the class of Anahit Shahbazyan, he moved to Moscow to pursue his musical education in the Gnesin Music Academy under the mentorship of professor Arthur Berngardt. Ruben obtained his Master’s degree at the Moscow State Conservatory under the guidance of professor Valery Kastelsky. His professional and personal formation has been greatly influenced by a number of outstanding musicians such as Boris Berlin, Lazar Berman and Alexis Weissenberg, who gave Ruben his personal international prize in 2001. Winner of ten prestigious international piano competitions in Armenia, China, Croatia and Italy, Ruben quickly established himself in the international music scene, an accomplishment that didn’t go unnoticed by prominent performers and critics alike. The prize awards he collected at the Second China International Piano Competition in Beijing (China), the Svetislav Stančić International Piano Competition in Zagreb (Croatia) and at the Aram Khachaturyan International Piano Competition in Yerevan (Armenia) expanded his recognition as an “intelligent and subtle pianist, whose performance always reveals something new and consistently interesting” according to Lazar Berman’s testimony. Ruben’s concert tours include numerous countries of Europe, Asia and America. The performances range from solo recitals and concerts with Symphony orchestras to participation in chamber ensembles – a piano duo with his wife Julia Gubajdullina and the well-known trio “Amadeus” to be mentioned. Ruben is an active member of the SONEMUS organisation (Sarajevo’s Organisation for New Music). His repertoire encompasses music from baroque to present days. With more than 20 concerts in his program and a special emphasis on the Romantic period Ruben performs a wide range of musical works. In collaboration with the Croatian Radio he has recently recorded the entirety of the piano opus of the famous Croatian composer Blagoje Bersa. The pianist also gives special attention and dedication to the promotion of the works of Armenian composers, an interesting and original music inseparably linked to the culture of his native country. Ruben began his pedagogic activities at the Sarajevo Music academy in 2000 and has been serving since 2005 as a Professor of piano at the Zagreb University Music Academy. During the last ten years he raised a large number of young pianists who went on to become finalists and prize winners of more than 50 international competitions. These competitions include most notably the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, the Robert Schumann International Piano Competition in Zwickau, the Zhuhai International Mozart Piano Competition in Zhuhai, China, the Shura Cherkassky International Piano Competition in Milan, the International Piano Competition for Young Musicians in Enschede, Netherlands, etc. As part of his pedagogical work Ruben holds master classes and seminars on a regular basis in Croatia and abroad. He is also frequently invited to serve as a jury member at various international music competitions. His noteworthy projects include the founding of the piano summer school in Makarska (Croatia) in 2005, together with Julia Gubaidullina. The seaside piano master course has since evolved into one of the most prominent events for young pianists in the region.
