Vladislav Kosminov, Rising Star


Pianist Vladislav Kosminov, a native of Uzbekistan, made his California debut in January 2015 performing Chopin's Piano Concerto No.1 with Maestro Jon Robertson and the Redlands Symphony. The performance was described by Redlands Daily Facts as a “concert…with music simply flowing through his fingers and floating like liquid gold in intricate patterns up and down the keyboard.”

As the winner of the 2013 Lynn Concerto Competition, Mr. Kosminov made his United States debut in October of that year under the baton of Maestro Guillermo Figueroa, performing Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Previous to his United States debut, he was a prizewinner of several International and National Competitions, including the Shabyt Inspiration International Piano Competition (Grand Prize, Astana, Kazakhstan, 2009), and the International Rubinstein Piano Concerto Competition (Second Prize, Paris, France, 2004). In 2015, he was one of the prizewinners of the George Gershwin International Competition in Brooklyn, NY.

Coming from a musical family, Mr. Kosminov was trained as a solo pianist. At home he studied at the Academic Musical Lyceum for gifted children named after Vladimir Uspensky. He has performed in various cities and historical places in Uzbekistan.

Mr. Kosminov came to the United States in 2013 to pursue a Professional Performance Certificate at the Lynn Conservatory of Music as a student of Roberta Rust. Currently, he is pursuing his Master’s Degree under the tutelage of the gold medalist of the 11th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Stanislav Ioudenitch, in Park University, MO.
