“He has the neuro-motor responses of a jungle cat and the energy reserves of an Olympic athlete.” –International Record Review

Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov’s electric performances have established him as a forerunner in the new generation of classical instrumentalists. From crystalline delicacy to thundering power, his preternatural command of the keyboard sends chills down the spine as he plunges into the underworld of the score at hand. Past appearances include the Prokofiev Piano Concerto cycle with the Mariinsky Orchestra and Valery Gergiev, culminating in his exhilarating concerto debut at Carnegie Hall.
