On SUN / JAN 27, Behzod Abduraimov will team up with his former teacher, Cliburn Gold Medalist Stanislav Ioudenitch for a performance on two pianos. An Uzbek-born American pianist, Stanislav has studied and performed all over Europe, the United States and Asia, as well as collaborated with top musicians and conductors.
He is best known for winning the Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Gold Medal at the Eleventh Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2001. It was co-won with Olga Kern, which was the first time two pianists earned the top prize. Also, Maxim Philippov and Antonio Pompa-Baldi shared the Silver Medal.
In the final round, Stanislav Ioudenitch performed Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 23. Watch above to experience some excerpts demonstrating the artistry and emotion that Stanislav put into this performance with the Ft. Worth Symphony.
