Limitless virtuosity, combined with a unique sense of rhythm, colour and poetry, make Russian pianist Arcadi Volodos the narrator of intense stories and infinite worlds. Arcadi Volodos began his musical studies with lessons in singing and conducting, before switching to the piano. He began training seriously as a pianist at the age of fifteen at the St Petersburg Conservatory and then pursued advanced studies at the Moscow Conservatory and in Paris and Madrid. Since making his New York debut in 1996, Volodos has performed throughout the world in recital and with the most eminent orchestras. He has worked with, among others, the Berlin, New York, Munich and Israel Philharmonic Orchestras, the London Philharmonia Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra and the Boston and Chicago Symphony Orchestras, collaborating with conductors such as Myung-Whun Chung, Lorin Maazel, Valery Gergiev, James Levine, Zubin Mehta, Seiji Ozawa, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Paavo Järvi, Christoph Eschenbach, Semyon Bychkov and Riccardo Chailly. His numerous recordings have garnered excellent reviews. Piano recitals have played a central role in Volodos’s artistic life since he began his career, and he has won multiple awards.
