In an awe inspiring performance, Konstantin Soukhovetski performed magic on Wednesday afternoon in front of a small audience on the east side of Cleveland. It was a treat to hear a musician of such caliber perform. Used to giving recitals in New York, Boston, Washington D.C, Spain, France, and more, it was a rare opportunity to hear a master pianist perform in close quarters in an intimate setting.
Born in Moscow in 1981, Konstantin moved to the United States in 1999 and received his Bachelor's and Master's Degree form the Julliard School, where he is now an Artist Diploma candidate with Jerome Lowenthal. Konstantin has recently been the recipient of the 2006 William Petschek Debut Recital Award, Second Prize winner of the 2004 UNISA International Piano Competition in Pretoria, South Africa, Third Prize Winner of the 2003 Cleveland International Piano Competition and the First Prize winner at the 2002 Hilton Head International Piano Competition. In 2004 he became a Paul and Daisy Soros Fellow.
Recently returning from South Africa where he performed to great acclaim with the Cape Town Philharmonic and the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic orchestras, he has returned to Cleveland. Konstantin will be performing at the InterContitental Hotel in Cleveland on the 4th of December. He will be performing with another rising star Liana Gourdjia. Liana is a violinist who has been studying with David and Linda Cerone at CIM. There is a brunch before the concert that begins at 12:00 pm and the concert begins at 2:00 pm in the Six Continents lounge. There is a $48 dollar per person fee for the Brunch-concert duo. Students will cost $36 and children $24.
