Vadim Kholodenko, winner of the 2013 Van Cliburn competition, is giving a concert in the Great Hall of the Budapest Academy of Music tomorrow, 9th February at 19:30. Prices from 10 to about 25 €.
A native of Kiev, Kholodenko was born in 1986. Since age 15, he’s collected a number of international prizes, like one at the Budapest Liszt Piano Competition, but the first prize from Fort Worth really established him as one of the leading pianists of our time.
He is reputed to be comparable to the greatest Russian predecessors, Richter and Emil Gilels, so I’d love to be there to listen. If you are anywhere near Budapest and a fan of excellent piano concerts, here’s one for you. Don’t miss it, and please write about it here afterwards.
