Scholar

Monika Mašanauskaite

Monika Masanauskaite was born in 1995 in Lithuania. Her primary piano teachers have been Fali Pavri and Aaron Shorr. Currently, she is completing a Master’s degree at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS), where she also completed her undergraduate degree.

She received a scholarship from the Liechtenstein International Music Academy and took part in the academy's intensive music weeks and activities. 

Praised for the elegance and command of her performances, Monika is active as a soloist, chamber musician, and music entrepreneur. Highlights of her performance credits include the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (Scotland), the Teatre Metropol (Tarragona, Spain) and the Quintaine Hall (Chasseneuil-du-Poitou, France). Her recital programs often include rarely heard works by Sergei Lyapunov, Nikolai Medtner and Lili Boulanger alongside more traditional works in the canon. The resulting concert programmes captivate audiences, offering listeners the opportunity to discover new works and re-discover familiar pieces cast in new contexts. 

Among her honours are 1st prizes at the “Tonia and Tania Webster Competition” for rarely played Russian piano repertoire (Glasgow, Scotland) and at the “Josep Mirabent I Migrans Chamber Music Competition” (Sitges, Spain). Monika has also received commendations from two Lithuanian Presidents for her international achievements. 

As a chamber musician, Monika has performed at the historical landmark Al Raco de la Calma (Sitges, Spain), at the Festival Musique et Patrimoine en Vienne et Gartempe (Saint - Savin, France) and at The Prince Charles Dumfries House (Scotland). Together with the Belgian violinist Michelle Dierx and American cellist Shannon Merciel, Monika completes the trio Trio Doyenne, recipients of the “Mary D. Adams Prize” for chamber music which was awarded by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. 

As an artist entrepreneur, Monika founded and directs the Kaunas Piano Fest, a piano festival and series of masterclasses in her native Lithuania.
