b. 1971
Russian pianist

A child prodigy, he gave his first solo recital at the age of 10 and as a teenager worked with Karajan, later collaborating with Solti, Giulini, Abbado, Maazel and Ashkenazy among conductors, and with Martha Argerich, Isaac Stern and Joshua Bell in chamber music. But it is for solo performances of the Romantic repertoire (especially Chopin and Rachmaninov) that he is most in demand: in 1997 he gave the first ever solo piano recital in the main Proms season.
