He also gives recitals in Washington D.C. on 16 October and Miami on 17 October.
In addition to these recitals, Kozhukhin also joins the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Hugh Wolff for two performances of Gershwin Piano Concerto on 13 and 15 October.
Finally he rounds off his tour in Toronto, where he performs Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.4 and Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue in two concerts on 26 and 27 October with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Kristjan Järvi.
