Winner of the coveted gold medal at the Fourteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Vadym Kholodenko captured the attention of jury, audience, and critics alike for “mesmerizing and exhilarating” performances that brought the crowd to their feet, “[cheering] him like a rock star” (Cincinnati Enquirer).

Born in Kiev, Vadym Kholodenko was the first musician in his family. He made his first appearances in the United States, China, Hungary, and Croatia at the age of 13. He currently resides in Moscow with his wife and 2-year-old daughter. Program includes Forgotten Melodies of Nikolai Medtner and Rachmaninov’s Suite from the Partita in E Major (Bach); Wohin? (Schubert); Schero from A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Mendelssohn); Lullaby, Op. 16, No. 1 (Tchaikovsky); Polka de V.R.; Leibesleid and Leibesfreud (Kreisler).
