About this Event

Making his Australian debut with a deeply romantic programme of Brahms, Chopin, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, this will be an afternoon to savour!

The most famous Ukrainian pianist, Botvinov is one of the best specialists in Rachmaninoff music worldwide. He is the only pianist who performed Bach‘s „Goldberg Variations“ more than 300 times on stage.

Alexey Botvinov has performed in over 45 countries. National Artist of Ukraine, in his country’s press he enjoys such words like “symbol of high spirit” or “true mark for authentic sense of music”. Alexey Botvinov was born in all-musicians family in Odessa, where he studied with Prof. Mogilewskaja and later at the Conservatory of Odessa with Prof. Kardaschew. 1987-89 he was a student at the Moscow Conservatory with famous Prof. Gornostayeva. His last mentor was legendary pianist Alexis Weissenberg. Botvinov is a prize-winner of such important piano competitions as the 1st Rachmaninoff-Competition in Moscow, the 8th International Bach-Competition in Leipzig and the 1st Clara-Schumann-Competition in Düsseldorf. In 1993 he played Tchaikovsky's First piano concerto for the opening of the concert season at the Tonhalle Zürich with the Radio Symphony Orchestra Moscow under the baton of Vladimir Fedoseyev, which was highly acclaimed by the press and by the audience.
