Irish concert-goers are still talking about the spellbinding technique and supreme artistry displayed by Nikolay Khozyainov in winning last year’s Dublin International Piano Competition. We are 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. A 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.

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
