Denis Kozhukhin, Piano
Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin was launched onto the international scene after winning First Prize in the 2010 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels at the age of 23. He has quickly established a formidable reputation and has already appeared at many of the world’s most prestigious festivals and concert halls.
In 2014/15, Kozhukhin makes his debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Houston Symphony Orchestra, and Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo. He will also tour China with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Kozhukhin’s recording of Prokofiev Piano Sonatas Nos. 6, 7 & 8, “The War Sonatas” (Onyx), received a five star rating from BBC Magazine in 2013. Sonata No. 8, one of Prokofiev’s greatest masterworks, will be a highlight of Kozhukhin’s South Florida recital debut.
