Notes & Reviews:

The competition's Gold Medal winner, Ukrainian Vadym Kholodenko, captured the attention of audiences and critics alike for his powerful performances marked by vibrant imagination and intelligence. His cadenza in Mozart's Concerto K. 467 - which he composed on the plane from Moscow to the competition - showed him to have "the guts of a true superartist" (San Francisco Classical Voice). Kholodenko's 2013 - 14 season includes performances at the La Jolla Music Society, Krannert Center, Mann Center with The Philadelphia Orchestra, Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, and Oporto National Orchestra. This live CD of his competition performances features Stravinsky's Pétrouchka and the complete Liszt Transcendental Études.

Dallas Observer
A virtuosic display not of piano playing, but of thrilling music-making.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Gold Medal winner Kholodenko's has the most flash and display. Exceptional technique and solid musicality grounds these interpretations. Petrouchka abounds with imagination and boldness: III shimmers. His execution is vibrant, with no hint of exaggeration. The Transcendental Etudes are full of decisive playing and flair. Kholodenko has a 50-concert engagement and a studio recording as part of his prize.
