Piano recital by Nikolai Demidenko to be staged in Shenzhen


Nikolai Demidenko

Russian pianist Nikolai Demidenko will give a piano recital March 28.

Demidenko studied at the Moscow Gnessin School with Anna Kantor and at the Moscow Conservatoire under Dmitri Bashkirov. He was a finalist at the 1976 Montreal International Piano Competition and the 1978 Tchaikovsky International Competition.

He taught at the Yehudi Menuhin School in Britain, where he has been a resident since 1990. He was granted British citizenship in 1995 and currently holds a visiting professorship at the University of Surrey.

In addition to a vast amount of the standard Germanic and Russian repertory, he is a specialist of Frederic Chopin and a noted champion of the works of neglected composers such as Muzio Clementi, Carl Maria von Weber, Jan Vaclav Vorisek and Nikolai Medtner, as well as neglected works of well-known composers such as Domenico Scarlatti, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert and Robert Schumann, and transcriptions by Ferruccio Busoni.

Demidenko won a Gramophone Award in 1992 in the concerto category for his recording of Medtner’s “Piano Concertos No. 2 and 3.”
