Description

,

Concert pianist Konstantin Shamray burst onto the international music scene when he won both Judges’ and People’s Choice prizes at the Sydney International Piano Competition in 2008. Since then, he has enjoyed critical acclaim for his performances with orchestras and chamber music groups around the world.

Described as an exhilarating performer with faultless technique and fearless command of the piano, Konstantin has performed under the baton of distinguished conductors including Vladimir Spivakov, Dmitry Liss, Tugan Sokhiev, Nicholas Milton and Alexandr Vedernikov.

For Queanbeyan, Konstantin has prepared a deeply romantic programme opening with Beethoven’s Moonlight sonata and exploring the wealth of piano romanticism with Chopin, Debussy, Rachmaninov and Liszt.

Shamray’s recital – featuring works by Debussy, Rachmaninov, Ravel and Scriabin – was a thrilling and profound experience of programming and performance.
