“The Music World is taking note of Nikolay Khozyainov’s stunning virtuosity and prodigious technique.” New York Times

Born in the Russian Far East, at 24 years old Nikolay Khozyainov is already one of the most remarkable pianists of his generation. He made his debut with the Handel Piano Concerto at the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory at the age of seven, then later went on to study at the Conservatory. Soon he began an international performance career, thrilling audiences with his musicality and formidible technique. Highlights of his recital and concerto engagements include sold out performances at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, London’s Wigmore Hall, Kennedy Center in Washington, Salle Gaveau, Théâtre de Champs-Elysees, and the Louvre in Paris, Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, and Suntory Hall in Tokyo. He has released four CDs, and his growing list of awards includes being the youngest finalist of the XVI International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, “He has everything: a big sound, splendid technique, and a musicality far beyond his years.” Dave Saemann, Fanfare Magazine
