Behzod Abduraimov

Piano


Carnegie Hall Date: Jan 27, 2015 Feb 18, 2015

Behzod Abduraimov’s captivating performances have won him high critical praise, most recently from the LA Times: “he played Tchaikovsky’s fast and furious passages not like a challenge but an almost serene joy.” The Washington Post critic also recently noted: “I’m not sure I could give higher praise – keep your ear on this one”.

Abduraimov has worked with orchestras including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Mariinsky Orchestra, Boston Symphony, London Philharmonic, Sydney Symphony, Tokyo Symphony and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. He has collaborated with conductors such as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Valery Gergiev, Krzysztof Urbański, Vasily Petrenko, James Gaffigan, Charles Dutoit and Vladimir Jurowski.

In North America, highlights of the 2014/15 season include a return to the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Mena, Detroit Symphony Orchestra under Andrey Boreyko and a US tour with the Mariinsky Orchestra under Gergiev, to include Carnegie Hall. He returns to the hall later in the season to make his debut recital appearance as part of their “Distinctive Debuts” series.

In Europe this season engagements include his debut with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra/ Jiří Bělohlávek, he takes part in the Mariinsky Orchestra’s Prokofiev Piano Concerto cycle at the Baltic Sea Festival in Stockholm, Vienna Konzerthaus and Konzerthaus Dortmund under Valery Gergiev; and returns to the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by David Zinman.

In Autumn 2014, Decca released his second album featuring Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 3 and Tchaikovsky Concerto No. 1 with the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai under Juraj Valčuha.
Behzod Abduraimov is Artist in Residence at the International Center for Music at Park University, Kansas City.
