It is a year of sadness for the vaunted Van Cliburn Foundation, with the passing of the great pianist and inspiration himself this past February. But the competition goes on, and remains dedicated to revealing the world’s finest new piano talents. Charlotte Concerts is honored and excited to be on the short list of guaranteed victory concerts for 2013 Gold Medalist Vadym Kholodenko.
Born in Kiev, Vadym Kholodenko won first prize at both the International Schubert Competition in Dortmund in 2012, and the Sendai International Music Competition in 2010. He has worked with Yuri Bashmet, Vladimir Spivakov, and other distinguished conductors, and has performed across the globe in Austria, China, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, and the United States. He released recordings of Liszt, Rachmaninov, and Medtner on Russia’s TV Culture label in 2009. An avid chamber musician as well, he performed and recorded a CD with violinist Alena Baeva, and formed a piano duo with Andrey Gugnin which they dubbed “iDuo.” Kholodenko currently resides in Moscow, where he attends the Moscow P.I. Tchaikovsky Conservatory.
