Denis Kozhukhin: “Music is made of life and takes time”

“I grew up with Rakhmaninov’s music, perhaps the first melodies I remember hearing.”

“The important thing is to accumulate experience. And in the end many things happen by a stroke of luck, they don’t depend directly on you, no matter how hard you try. Sometimes your career path changes because you meet a certain person or because you were in the right place at the right time. The important thing is to be prepared for when destiny calls. And in the meantime, work calmly and understand that a musician is not formed in fifteen or twenty years. Every day we see younger and younger virtuoso musicians, incredible children with amazing technical abilities. But it is not just about playing the right notes as fast as possible. Music is made of life, and it takes time, even time to get it wrong.”
