Mikhail Kazakevich – Russian Pianist of exceptional lyrical quality
We are delighted to welcome Mikhail Kazakevich at Wymondham Abbey in this lunchtime concert.
“One of Russia’s best-kept secrets’ is how they like to promote him and for once it’s true. Of the floods of musicians from the CIS now filling the concert halls and recording studios of the West, Mikhail Kazakevich is one of the most worthy of listening time.” – The Times (UK)
“I was working in Marylebone Lane at Bosendorfer Pianos at the time. We were privileged to hear many wonderful pianists, established and up and coming. I never forgot Mikhaïl Kazakevich who wowed us with his extraordinary sensitive, and beautiful playing. We are so lucky he has agreed to come play for us!”
Mikhail Kazakevich is currently a Professor of Piano at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. He frequently gives Master Classes and adjudicates at the London Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music and the Atlantic College of Wales.
He came to London in 1992, and made his debut at Wigmore Hall. He was then signed exclusively by the BMG/Conifer recording label, and has made numerous recordings. He has played solo and with orchestras at prestigious venues and festivals in Austria, Germany, France, Russia, Switzerland, Denmark, South Korea and the Middle East.
