Notes and Editorial Reviews

An internationally known pianist who plays all over the world, Alexei Volodin has won prizes at various international competitions. In 2003 he won the First Prize at the ninth edition of the Concours Géza Anda in Zurich, which launched his international career.

"The 31-year-old Russian virtuoso runs up and down the keyboard with seamless fluidity, every note precisely placed and released, yet his emphasis is solely on the music and not the performer." — San Diego Arts
