Watch a pre-competition interview with Vadym and Cliburn Competition Webcast Host Jade Simmons:
Kholodenko and his accomplished young piano colleague Andrey Gugnin joined forces a few years back to form a crack duo-piano team known simply as iDuo – which is also the title of their stunning 2010 debut CD for Delos featuring the music of Debussy, Rachmaninoff and Ravel. Maestro Constantine Orbelian, Delos’ most prolific recording artist, showcased him (along with a bevy of other emerging young virtuoso instrumentalists and singers from former Soviet-era nations) last December at a sold-out gala Carnegie Hall event with the Moscow Chamber Orchestra entitled “New Stars for a New Century” – and Vadym’s performance drew especially tumultuous applause from the jam-packed audience.
