Konstantin Soukhovetski

Konstantin Soukhovetski is one of the most captivating and distinctive young pianists to emerge in recent years. He won the First Prize and Audience Prize at 2007 New Orleans International Piano Competition and the distinguished 2006 William Petschek Debut Recital Award.

He has performed internationally as a soloist with the Johannesburg Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, and the Cape Town Philharmonic among others. He has performed piano recitals throughout Europe and the Middle East, and at New York City’s Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, where his debut recital garnered the New York Times headline “Romanticism so intense it warms up Philip Glass.”

Born in Moscow in 1981 to a family of artists, he studied at the Moscow State Conservatory Special Music School before entering the Juilliard School where he earned his AD, BM and MM degrees and in 2003 received the Arthur Rubinstein Prize. In 2008 Mr. Soukhovetski will release two solo CDs on his new label – Constant Records.
