“Kholodenko exudes a sense of excitement that comes straight out of his personality. Pianist and composer sounded as one, the performance closer to an experience of absolute improvisation than one will ever find in the classical repertoire. He played with such precipitous muscularity and high spirits… [with a] delicate and wistful side to his artistry that was utterly charming.” – New York Classical Review

2013 Cliburn Gold Medalist

His Cliburn appearance in 2013 is never to be forgotten; the dynamic and technically phenomenal performances earned Vadym Kholodenko the gold medal and the adoration of fans and critics around the world. He’s since concertized in the major halls and with prestigious orchestras across North America, Europe, and Asia, including being named the first artist-in-partnership of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, where Bass Hall audiences were treated to hearing every Prokofiev concerto in his capable hands. His recordings are also lauded: he’s won a Diapason d’Or de l’année (France’s GRAMMY® equivalent) and “Editor’s Choice” from London’s Gramophone magazine. The Kyiv native now returns to Fort Worth—his first Cliburn Concerts appearance in nine years—for two unique concert experiences. See him perform Schubert and Prokofiev in a traditional recital at the Kimbell, or in the casual and intimate confines of The Post. We recommend getting your tickets early.
