Winner of the coveted gold medal at the Fourteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2013, Vadym Kholodenko captured the attention of jury, audience, and critics alike for powerful, exhilarating performances that "showed the guts of a true superartist" (San Francisco Classical Voice). Also taking home prizes for best performance of the piano quintet and best performance of the commissioned work, he further demonstrated his artistry with a stunning cadenza in Mozart's Concerto No. 21 in C Major, K. 467-which he composed himself on the plane from Moscow to the Competition. Since then, Mr. Kholodenko has continued to build a reputation for interpretations that are "impeccable, tasteful and vibrant, and also something more: imaginative" (Cleveland Plain Dealer).

In Kholodenko's hands, the music danced. It lilted and twirled and zipped and jolted with dizzying speed and accuracy. After so many examples of sheer technical skill, this was a virtuosic display not of piano playing, but of thrilling music-making. It was mesmerizing not because it was impressive (although it was), but because it took you to the edge of exhilaration and then jumped back, leaving you breathlessly waiting for the next sonic rise to whip your ears around the psychedelic dance floor of your imagination." -Dallas Observer.

Vadym will be performing throughout Japan in 2015 and for the first time in Singapore this June, 2015 at the Esplanade Concert Hall.
