Born in Kiev in 1986, Vadym Kholodenko performed his first concerts in the United States, China, Hungary and Croatia at the age of thirteen. In 2013 he won the prestigious Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, captivating the jury and critics with his dazzling performance and receiving standing ovations from the audience. He has also won first prizes at numerous other competitions, which has undoubtedly contributed to the fact that, despite his youth, he has already worked with some of the world’s most prominent conductors, including Leonard Slatkin, Vladimir Fedoseyev and Yuri Bashmet, while Valery Gergiev even named him Artist of the Month during a residency in St Petersburg. He has appeared with several American and European orchestras and his outstanding performances are rapidly earning him a reputation as one of the most musically and technically gifted young pianists currently active.
