Vassily Primakov - piano recital by celebrated Russian pianist
26 August 2010

Vassily Primakov was recently called “…a pianist's pianist. He is a giant of the keyboard.” (Deseret News, Salt Lake City). Since the release of his recording of the Chopin Piano Concertos, Vassily Primakov has been hailed as a pianist of world class importance. Gramophone wrote: “Primakov's empathy with Chopin's spirit could hardly be more complete”, and the American Record Guide stated: “This is a great Chopin pianist. Primakov's timing is perfect.” MusicWeb-International called the CD “one of the great Chopin recordings of recent times.”

Vassily entered Moscow's Central Special Music School at the age of eleven as a pupil of Vera Gornostaeva. He won first prize in the Rachmaninoff International Young Artist Competition. At seventeen he pursued his studies at the Juilliard School with the noted pianist, Jerome Lowenthal. While he was a student there, Primakov was placed among the top two laureates of the Cleveland International Piano Competition, and won both the silver medal and the Audience Prize in the 2002 Gina Bachauer International Artists Piano Competition. He won first prize in the 2002 Young Concert Artists (YCA) International Auditions. In 2007 he was named the Classical Recording Foundation's Young Artist of the Year.
