Vadym Kholodenko piano

Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971): Trois mouvements de Pétrouchka

Franz Liszt (1811-1886): Transcendental Études

Winner of the coveted gold medal at the Fourteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Vadym Kholodenko captured the attention of jury, audience, and critics alike for "mesmerizing and exhilarating" performances that brought the crowd to their feet, "[cheering] him like a rock star" -- Cincinnati Enquirer.

Also taking home prizes for best performance of the piano quintet and best performance of the commissioned work, he showed his aptitude in both recital and chamber music, then highlighted the Final Round with two stunning concerti with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra under Maestro Leonard Slatkin. His cadenza in Mozart's Concerto No. 21 in C Major, K. 467--which he composed himself on the plane from Moscow to the Competition--was praised as "fascinatingly contrapuntal," showing "the guts of a true superartist" -- San Francisco Classical Voice.

"Kholodenko was, well, awesome. (...) This was not simply a display of grand tone and steely technique, but a case study in how to put such attributes to consistently musical use." -- Montreal Gazette

"There seemed to me to be a real joy in his playing that communicated itself to the highly appreciative audience. It certainly won me over." -- Stage Left

"In Kholodenko's hands, the music [of Stravinsky's Pétrouchka] danced. It lilted and twirled and zipped and jolted with dizzying speed and accuracy. (...) this was a virtuosic display not of piano playing, but of thrilling music-making." -- Dallas Observer

"He played the music, but he also played the intent, and that is a rare quality. Suddenly, this music stopped being an elaborate etude and became a piece of theater music." --

As ever, Angela’s accompanying notes provide fascinating insights into both the music and her performances.
