The Cole Concert series continues on Sunday, November 21 with world class pianist Vassily Primakov at 4 pm.
Vassily Primakov was born in Moscow in 1979. He entered Moscow's Central Special Music School at the age of eleven as a pupil of Vera Gornostaeva. At 17, he studied at the Juilliard School with the noted pianist, Jerome Lowenthal and won the William Petschek Piano Recital Award, which presented his debut recital at Alice Tully Hall. He was awarded a Susan W. Rose Career Grant, and won both the Silver Medal and the Audience Prize in the 2002 Gina Bachauer International Artists Piano Competition. In 2007, he was named the Classical Recording Foundation's "Young Artist of the Year" and in 2009, his Chopin Mazurka CD (BRIDGE 9283) was named "Best of the Year" by National Public Radio. Gramophone said, "Primakov's empathy with Chopin's spirit could hardly be more complete." His performance will feature works by Chopin and Rachmaninoff.
