Event Details:

Professor Mikhail Voskresensky is the top prizewinner of many international piano competitions, including The First Van Cliburn competition, and has captivated audience with his electrifying interpretations of the great piano literature of all styles. He is the distinguished professor of Moscow Tchaikovsky conservatory, head of chair of the piano faculty, and his pupils have won more than 120 international prizes, including 61 gold medals. He has adjudicated in many international competitions as well as Tchaikovsky and Scriabin (chairman of jury) competitions in Moscow.

In recent times, Professor Voskresensky's unique journey, defecting from Russia in protest against the war in Ukraine, has been a prominent topic of discussion in both the music and current events communities. An interview with CNN provides more details on his decision to leave.
