Nikolai Demidenko’s passionate pianism means that he is in demand worldwide. Frequent London recitals have included the Great Performers series at the Barbican, the International Piano Series at Southbank Centre, and recently in the London Pianoforte Series at the Wigmore Hall – a Schubert recital performed to a great success and rave reviews in the national  press.
He is renowned for his authoritative performances of the Russian concerto repertoire such as Prokofiev, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky and has worked with many conductors and orchestras throughout the world.

“Then it was time for the C minor sonata D958, with its heroic Beethovenian echoes. Demidenko took the first two movements at tempi so slow that  they might in other hands have caused the audience to nod off, but this performance was riveting: the truncated phrases and sudden silences spoke of memories, regrets, and the
grave. Then came rebirth, with the galloping exuberance of the Tarantella climaxing in a blaze of brilliance.”
