Behzod Abduraimov Returns to Carnegie Hall
Cristian Fatu

Young Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov is among the fastest rising pianists of his generation.  After releasing his debut recording in 2012 on the Decca Classics label, he has appeared with some of the world’s premier orchestras including the Los Angeles, Munich and Hong Kong philharmonics, Boston, NHK, Dallas, Seattle and Adelaide symphony orchestras, and the London and Czech philharmonic orchestras.  As a recitalist, he is lauded for his outstanding command of technique and unique musical voice: “In demeanor and musicianship alike, here is a pianist who is no-nonsense, yet never nondescript.” (The New York Times).

Last season, in addition to concerts in Wigmore Hall, Spivey Hall and with the Washington Performing Arts Series, Mr. Abduraimov made his BBC Proms debut, praised by The Guardian: “Most impressive of all was the Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov’s glitteringly idiomatic account of Rachmaninov’s third piano concerto.”

The 2016/17 season will bring Mr. Abduraimov to the Van Cliburn series, Carolina Performing Arts, the Vancouver Recital series as well as concerts with the Houston and Pittsburgh symphonies, the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, Minnesota Orchestra and others.  

In November, Abduraimov gave his successful New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, after which The New York Times stated, “Mr. Abduraimov will, I expect, have a long and distinguished career to show us.” In November 2016, Abduraimov returns to Carnegie Hall at the age of 26 to perform on the stage of Stern Auditorium.
