Denis Kozhukhin travels to Poland on 10 August 2016 for a solo recital at the International Chopin Festival, held at Chopin’s birthplace in Duszniki Zdrój in Poland.
Kozhukhin performs a programme of Haydn Keyboard Sonata in D major, Brahms 3 Intermezzi, Bartók Out of Doors, BB.89, Weber Piano Sonata No.3 and a selection from Albéniz Iberia.
Kozhukhin is a noted recitalist, attracting high praise for his recent appearance at the International Piano Series at London’s Southbank Centre:
“Unshowily but grippingly, he dispatched two Haydn sonatas and Bartók’s brilliantly condensed Out of Doors pieces, and ventured the high Romantic contrast of Liszt’s Bénédiction de Dieu dans la solitude. There was Brahms and encore Scarlatti, too – Kozhukhin ranged over the keyboard centuries like a duke displaying prized possessions.”
“Denis Kozhukhin … played [two Haydn sonatas] with brilliance, sensitivity and wit. His subtle and dynamic approach was a joy … The Liszt was altogether exceptional – luxuriant and evocative, ideally contemplative, ravishing the senses … Denis Kozhukhin is simply one of the best pianists around.”
