Moldova's Livyka Shtirbu-Sokolov completes line-up
Livyka Shtirbu-Sokolov is the first ever Young Musicians participant from Moldova
Chisinau, Moldova -

Moldova’s national broadcaster TeleRadio-Moldova has chosen its representative for Eurovision Young Musicians 2014, thus completing the line-up for Cologne.

Livyka Shtirbu-Sokolov is the 14th and final participant to be announced for this year’s competition. The young pianist was selected internally by Moldovan television this week, after several days of auditions in the capital city, Chisinau. Livyka, who is sixteen years old, is currently a ninth grade student at the C.Porumbescu Lyceum of Music in Chisinau, where she studies in a specialty piano class of Professor Tatiana Sviridov.

She made her stage debut in 2006 in Chisinau’s Organ Hall, and took home the "Brilliant Debut" prize from the event! A year later she was awarded “Best debut of the year” by Moldovan television and over the past six years has added a long list of honours to her name – including performances in Moscow, Germany, Switzerland and Romania.

Moldova makes its debut at Eurovision Young Musicians this year, having joined the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005 and the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2010.

    Livyka radiates charisma, charm and confidence. Even though I never met her in person or attended any of her performances, after exchanging some messages and watching some of her videos online, in only a few days, I felt her sincerely, compassion and warmth, as though I had known her for years. Through her music and personality Livyka inspires so much. At only 16 years old you are not just an ambassador for Moldova, but for us all, well done, my dear girl. report to the moderator
