Ketevan begon haar studie op twaalfjarige leeftijd aan het Muziek Gymnasium in Tbilisi. Slechts twee jaar later won zij het internationale Anton Rubinstein Concours in Parijs.
"I had the great pleasure to listen to Mrs. Ketevan
She is not only an excellent pianist and a wonderful
musician but she also tries and succeeds to understand
the deeper meaning of the works she performs,
such as Beethoven’s Sonata opus 110.
As for her virtuosity, her interpretation of Gnomenreigen
by Liszt was the greatest I have ever heard since
György Cziffra’s. "
