The following is quoted from his web site;

Georgian Pianist Giorgi Latsabize was born 15 April 1978 in Tbilisi, Georgia. His hands first met the keys of a piano when he was three years old, an experience he vividly remembers to this day, as he knew at that moment that this instrument would be the most important thing in his life. In fact his parents revealed that Giorgi would cry hysterically whenever he was informed that they were visiting family or friends where there was no piano. At the age of five he began composing pieces on the piano and today at twenty-nine, he is already regarded as one of the most significant performers of his generation.

He was awarded a Georgian Presidential Scholarship which underwrote his early education culminating in master and artist degrees with highest honors, subsequent to additional degrees completed at Hannover Hochschule für Musik in Germany (2003) and at Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria (2005).

Latsabidze has studied with numerous great teachers including Professor Russudan Chodzava (The V. Saradjishvili Tbilisi State Conservatoire, Georgia), Professor Gerrit Zitterbart (Hochschule für Music und Theater, Hannover, Germany), Professor Klaus Kaufmann (Mozarteum, Salzburg, Austria), Professor Lazar Berman (Florence, Italy). Currently he continues at the University of Southern California (Los Angeles) with Pianist, Author and Editor Dr. Steward Gordon towards realization of a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree.

During extensive travels throughout Eastern Europe, Asia, South America and the United States giving master classes and concert performances, he was recognized for giving one of the best performances ever of the 24 Etudes of Chopin in his hometown of Tbilisi to a cheering audience of over a thousand people. In 2005 Giorgi gave solo concerts throughout Austria and in Vienna at the famed Beethoven Concert Hall – following which the Governor invited him to perform a series of private salon concerts in the Presidential Residences (Schloss Eggenberg, Graz) over the coming three consecutive years. He then performed Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto with orchestras in Vienna, Salzburg and Lienz. In June 2008 he performed all 12 Transcendental Etudes of Liszt in Hawaii (Honolulu Convention Center), shortly thereafter repeating the same program in Nice, France, which was recorded live in a broadcast over “Mezzo” – one of the leading musical channels in Europe.
