Alexei Volodin (piano)

Born in 1977 in Leningrad, Alexei Volodin studied at Moscow’s Gnessin Russian Academy of Music, the Moscow Conservatoire, and the International Piano Academy Lake Como. He gained international recognition following his victory at the Géza Anda International Piano Competition in Zurich in 2003. Acclaimed for his highly sensitive touch and technical brilliance, Alexei Volodin is in demand by orchestras at the highest level. He possesses an extraordinarily diverse repertoire, from Beethoven and Brahms through Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev and Scriabin, to Gershwin, Shchedrin and Kapustin.

As Artist-in-Residence at the Mariinsky Theatre during the 2014-15 season, he gave five concerts, including the opening recital of the season. He appears regularly with Valery Gergiev, including performances with the Mariinsky Orchestra at Stockholm’s Baltic Sea Festival, the Konzerthaus Dortmund, and Konzerthaus Vienna, as well as with the Münchner Philharmoniker, and the London Symphony Orchestra. Recent highlights including concerts with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, SWR and NHK symphony orchestras, Singapore Symphony Orchestra with Vladimir Ashkenazy, Orchestre national de Lille, and Orquesta Simfònica de Barcelona. In recent seasons Volodin has made his debuts at the BBC Proms with the London Symphony Orchestra, and with the Swedish Radio, Danish Radio, and BBC Symphony Orchestras, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, and Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI.

Alexei Volodin combines his career as a soloist with appearances as a chamber musician, collaborating with the Borodin Quartet, Casals Quartet, and Sol Gabetta. In recital, he regularly performs at Vienna’s Konzerthaus, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Paris’s Philharmonie, the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire, Alte Oper Frankfurt, Tonhalle Zürich, Madrid’s Auditorio Nacional, Barcelona’s Palau de la Música, and in London’s International Piano Series at the Southbank Centre, and at Wigmore Hall.

Recording for Challenge Classics, Volodin’s most recent disc—solo works of Sergei Rachmaninov—was released in 2013. He has previously recorded a solo disc of Schumann, Ravel, and Scriabin, and his earlier Chopin disc won a Choc de Classica and was awarded five stars by Diapason.
