It is announced today that Denis Kozhukhin has signed an exclusive recording agreement with Pentatone. Kozhukhin’s first disc for Pentatone will be Grieg Piano Concerto and Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 with the Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester Berlin and Vassily Sinaisky, which will be recorded in Berlin next month. Other projects are currently under discussion and will be announced at a later date.
This announcement comes on the day on which Kozhukhin returns for a recital at the Cologne Philharmonie and ahead of a season which includes recitals at the Concertgebouw’s Master Pianists Series, Vienna Konzerthaus, Lucerne Festival, the Southbank Centre’s International Piano Series, Boston Celebrity Series and Wigmore Hall. As a soloist, Kozhukhin has quickly established a formidable reputation and has already appeared with many of the world’s top orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia, Mariinsky, Philharmonia and West Eastern Divan Orchestras, amongst others.
“It is an honour to embark on this relationship with Pentatone, a label with a clear artistic vision and a commitment to excellence”, said Kozhukhin. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to record repertoire that has played a significant part in my musical life and to join a roster of artists whom I greatly admire. I am excited to be joining the Pentatone team and look forward to our musical collaboration.”
