  • Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin won the Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels exactly a decade ago, when he was 23 years old and already a winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition. One of the most impressive pianists of his generation, he is a frequent guest in the main concert halls in the world, performing alongside prestigious conductors and orchestras. His first album, recorded for Pentatone with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, was immediately Gramophone’s Editor's Choice and Record of the Month in several publications. To his debut recital at Casa da Música, Denis Kozhukhin brings a program focused on music for youth, including Schumann’s Scenes from Childhood - a set of memories that an adult would have from his own childhood. The recital ends with Ravel and his interpretation of the atmosphere of 19th century’s ballrooms, in an exquisite waltz which, in its version for solo piano, is considered one of the most transcendent pieces in the repertoire.
