Nikolay Khozyainov, solo piano


Irish concert-goers are still talking about the spellbinding technique and supreme artistry displayed by Nikolay Khozyainov while winning last year’s Dublin International Piano Competition, and we’re delighted to give you the chance to hear this young lion of the keyboard in full flow.  

Hailing from Blagoveshchensk, in the Russian Far East, the 21-year old is one of the most remarkable pianists of his generation. Winner of numerous awards, Khozyainov has already made his recital debut at Carnegie Hall, appeared in concert with the Tokyo Symphony, Warsaw Philharmonic and Sydney Symphony Orchestras while touring Europe, Asia and the USA.

Don’t be fooled by the shock of blond curls, the boyish charm or the swarm of Facebook fans – here is a performer capable of great maturity and sensitivity, who can convey the freewheeling, rhapsodic intensity of the great Romantic composers to dazzling effect. Prepare to be wowed!

Dublin Piano Competition 2012 - Nikolay Khozyainov


"So loud was the ovation [for Khozyainov] after his playing of Rachmaninov's Third Piano Concerto that it must have been depressing for any other competitor within earshot."

- The Irish Times

"Khozyainov proved himself master of the keyboard with playing that not only reached the heart of the score but also overcame its technical hurdles in a glittering display of virtuosity."

- The Irish Independent
