Mūza was born in Lithuania and lives now between Paris, Vilnius, and Geneva. After her studies at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow she won the famous All Union Competition in St. Petersburg designed to elect the best musicians in the USSR, and then the Grand Prize at the Budapest Liszt-Bartók International Piano Competition. Mūza joined the Lithuanian resistance, for which she was deprived of her passport until 1989. Upon her arrival in Paris, she won the First Prize for piano in the international competition Les Grands Maîtres Français of the Association Triptyque. Her international career has led her to perform in recitals and concertos on major stages and festivals in France and on the five continents, where she crossed with great conductors and renowned orchestras.
