CIM Alumnus Stanislav Khristenko Makes CIPC Final Four
August 8, 2013
Russian pianist Stanislav Khristenko (AD ’11), who studied at CIM with Sergei Babayan, has advanced to the final round of the 2013 Cleveland International Piano Competition–meaning he will perform at Severance Hall on Saturday, August 10.
“With just one work apiece by Bach and Brahms, the 29-year-old from Russia offered a fairly complete and dynamic musical self-portrait. Evoking the style of the renowned Glenn Gould, Khristenko ripped through the C-Minor Prelude and Fugue from the first book of Bach’s ‘Well-Tempered Clavier’ with radiant vigor. But the meat of his performance was Brahm’s Piano Sonata No. 1, a veritable one-man concerto permitting the artist to display everything from elfin filigree to thunderous muscle.”
On Saturday, Mr. Khristenko will play Brahms’ Piano Concert No. 1 in D minor, Op. 15. The winner and runners-up will be announced following this performance. Tickets are available by visiting the CIPC website at Clevelandpiano.org.
