Carrying off the Ernest Hutcheson First Prize but also an additional six prizes at the 2021 Online Edition of the Sydney International Piano Competition, the young Italian-Slovenian pianist was also winner of the 2018 edition of the Prix Ranieri 111: Monte-Carlo Piano Masters (Monte Carlo, Monaco) and, in 2015, First Prize and Audience Award winner at the Hamamatsu International Piano Competition (Hamamatsu, Japan). More recently, he was selected for the 2019-2021 BBC New Generation Artists Scheme, which provided opportunities for him to perform in many of the major festivals and series in the UK, both in recital and as soloist with the BBC orchestras, and to record regularly for BBC Radio 3. In demand as a soloist with orchestras, and as a recitalist, Gadjiev has also performed in the Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Great Hall of Ljubljana's Philharmonie, La Fenice in Venice and the Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatory.
