During the 2017 Competition, Yury won fans with his “high-octane approach” and “distinctive power and color;” one critic declared “the centuries-old Russian tradition of piano virtuosity lives on.” Since then, he has grown his career across the United States, Europe, and his native Russia; recent highlights include invitations from the Seattle and Montreal Symphony Orchestras and recordings featuring solo music by Alkan (MUSO) and Prokofiev violin sonatas (Melodiya). Also a proponent of new music, Yury is trained in composition and enjoys improvisation and premiering new work. Together with composer Alexey Sysoev (electronics) and Dnitry Schielkin (percussion), he formed the ensemble ERROR 404 devoted to free improvisatory music. In addition to his performance activities, he sits on the faculty of his alma mater, the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory.
