DENIS KOZHUKHIN

Sunday 12 May 2019  |  2:30PM

RHAPSODY IN BLUE

‘Even in a day when keyboard virtuosos are thick on the ground, Kozhukhin is special.’

Chicago Tribune

After winning the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels at the age of 23, Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin has become a regular name at the Verbier Festival in Switzerland, where he appears alongside some of the greatest musicians alive today. He studied at the International Piano Academy in Lake Como, Italy, and has recently been mentored by Daniel Barenboim.

Denis returns to UKARIA for a solo recital of miniatures that speak to intimacy and landscape: Schubert’s Four Impromptus, Op.142, Mendelssohn’s Songs without Words, and Grieg’s enchanting Lyric Pieces. He concludes the afternoon with the ravishing solo piano version of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.
