Piano Series: Igor Lovchinsky
An FAHC Production
Piano Series
Concert No. 5

Hailed by Gramophone as a "star of the future" and acclaimed by Piano Magazine for the "elegance and rapturous beauty" of his music-making, pianist Igor Lovchinsky has performed at The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Auditorium, The Bushnell Center, the Eastman Theater, and the Ohio Theater. Internationally, he has presented recitals at the National Philharmonic Hall in Warsaw, the American Embassy in Beijing, and the Rosza Centre in Calgary.

With a repertoire ranging from the Renaissance to the 21st century, Mr. Lovchinsky is a multi-faceted performer whose innovative programs  often combining the standard repertoire with jazz and popular music  reflect his diverse musical interests. Typically, Lovchinsky speaks to the audience at his recitals, engaging both the seasoned and lay listeners. The Southampton Press described his commentaries as "witty, informative, and non-technical, adding immeasurably to the non-professional's understanding."

An avid exponent of new music, Mr. Lovchinsky has championed works by Norman Dello Joio, Rodion Schedrin, Heather Schmidt, Avner Dorman, Nikolai Kapustin, and Earl Wild. After hearing his Etudes on Themes of Gershwin performed by Lovchinsky, Mr. Wild immediately offered to produce the young pianist's debut disc on the composer's label, Ivory Classics. In addition to Earl Wild's set of Etudes, the record features music by Chopin and Scriabin. This season, Mr. Lovchinsky took part in the Boston première of Olivier Messiaen's Catalogue d'Oiseaux at New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall, celebrating the composer's 100th birthday.

As a concerto soloist, Mr. Lovchinsky has performed with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra (OH), the "Live Music Project" Ensemble (Quick Centre in Fairfield, CT), and the Florida International University Symphony Orchestra. In addition, his performance of Chopin's First Concerto with the Connecticut Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra was broadcast on WQXR radio in New York, and was featured as the soundtrack of the independent film "Romance Larghetto" by director Pablo Goldbarg.

Born in Kazan, Russia in 1984, Igor Lovchinsky began playing the piano at the age of two. Very quickly, he showed extraordinary promisenot only as a pianist, but as a composer and improviser as welland by the age of four was already playing entire recitals for his friends and family. In 1989, he entered the Kazan Special Music School for Gifted Children and after coming to the United States in 1994, garnered first prizes at the Eastman International Piano Competition and the National Chopin Piano Competition of the Kosciuszko Foundation.

Mr. Lovchinsky holds a Bachelor's degree from The Juilliard School and is now in the graduate program at the New England Conservatory in Boston. His teachers have included Nina Polonsky, Steven Glaser, Jerome Lowenthal, and Patricia Zander.
