Pianist Behzod Abduraimov to Make Rare Concert Appearance

Stanislav Ioudenitch, Artistic Director of Park International Center for Music (Park ICM), announced today that his protégé, Behzod Abduraimov, will return to Kansas City on January 19th to play a rare solo concert. Following rave reviews across the globe, Abduraimov has become a pianist in demand. The Los Angeles Times reported, "Uzbekistani pianist Behzod Abduraimov is fast becoming one of the finest musicians of his generation." Bachtrack.com has also been quoted as saying of Abduraimov; "He is a bold player who can dazzle audiences with his technical brilliance."

Performing at the eclectic 1900 Building in Mission Woods, Kansas, this is an exceptional opportunity to see Abduraimov in such an intimate performance hall housing a mere 300 souls. Abduraimov's program, titled "Love and Death," will include: Wagner/Liszt Isolde's Liebestod, Liszt B minor Sonata and Prokofiev'sRoméo and Juliet.

The 28-year-old Park ICM alumnus made his splash in the piano world in the usual way, by tackling the big Russian piano concertos under his master and mentor, Ioudenitch. Abduraimov's captivating performances continue to receive international praise. Following his debut success at Carnegie Hall in 2015, recent seasons have seen Abduraimov work with leading orchestras worldwide including performances in London, Paris, Los Angeles, New York and Moscow. An award-winning recording artist, he released his first concerto disc in 2014 on Decca Classics which features Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No.3 and Tchaikovsky's Concerto No.1 with the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai under Juraj Valcuha. His debut recital CD won both the Choc de Classica and the Diapason Découverte.

Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in 1990, Abduraimov began to play the piano at the age of five as a pupil of Tamara Popovich at Uspensky State Central Lyceum in Tashkent. He now serves as Artist-in-Residence of Park University's International Center for Music.
