After his triumphant debut at Carnegie Hall, Arsentiy Kharitonov has been placed “in the top ranks of keyboard players today,” shares the New York Observer. While “fully in command of the technical and emotional demands of the music”, he is described as a pianist of “sumptuous tone, technical mastery, broad dramatic range of an astonishing breadth, and elegant phrasing,” by Fanfare Magazine. A prizewinner of national and international competitions, pianist and composer Arsentiy Kharitonov has been heard in solo recitals and with orchestras in Russia, Europe, Asia, and the USA. “His style is unlike any of his contemporaries, and harkens back to earlier times...Trumping some of the more prominent musical gymnasts, there is genuine poetry here and a rare sincerity issuing, it seems, from the deeper reaches of the human heart,” continues the New York Observer. Kharitonov’s first orchestral appearances include solo performances with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and the Mariinsky Theatre Youth Philharmonic. In 2017 Arsentiy stunned our midcoast audience with his performance…so we asked him to return! Classical fans should not miss this performance.
