The review from the Baden, Switzerland on bachtrack.com.
Fiona Talkington presents Ukrainian pianist Vadym Kholodenko playing Russian music from before and after the Revolutions of 1917.
“What a knockout!” Kholodenko tackles Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 5 in performance with the Mariinsky Theater Orchestra under Gergiev in Paris. (English translation follows the original French.)
Kholodenko “unleashes technical prowess and immersive lyrical engagement” in performance for the 19th annual Lavona Rushton Concert at the Birmingham Museum of Art.
Kholodenko gives a “magnificent performance” of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 with Miguel Harth-Bedoya and the Fort Worth Symphony.
Kholodenko’s “stunning ringing tone” and “spectacular digital speed” on display at Valley Performing Arts Center in LA
I don’t know how to measure deepness of music. I try to be sincere on stage and play what currently touches me the most.
Kholodenko is in his element with Prokofiev Concertos 2 & 5, and offers forthright, lithe, and virile performances on this harmonia mundi usa release.
Kholodenko gives a blockbuster performance of Beethoven’s popular “Emperor” Concerto with the Monterey Symphony.
Kholodenko plays with the precision you would expect of a Van Cliburn winner — alternating carefully controlled freneticism with elegant restraint.
