Pianists Cyprien Katsaris and Martino Tirimo jointly Awarded Nemitsas Prize
The 2011 Nemitsas Prize for Excellence in the Arts and Sciences has been awarded to pianists Cyprien Katsaris and Martino Tirimo. The award ceremony took place at the Presidential Palace in Nicosia on 16 September when the President of the Republic conferred on to the two Laureates this prestigious honour of international stature. The objective of the Nemitsas Foundation is to honour Cypriot scientists and artists who have made substantial contributions to society. Last year the Prize was shared by two distinguished doctors, working in Toronto and London, who have excelled worldwide in biomedical and clinical research. In 2012 Katsaris and Tirimo will give several concerts during Cyprus’ presidency of the European Union.
In addition Cyprien Katsaris will give an all too rare UK concert this coming weekend at the Galeri Caernarfon Arts Centre in North Wales.
