Biography

The multifaceted pianist Kirill Gerstein has rapidly ascended into classical music’s highest ranks.  With a masterful technique, discerning intelligence, and a musical curiosity that has led him to explore repertoire spanning centuries and styles, he has proven to be one of today’s most intriguing and versatile musicians. His early training and experience in jazz has contributed an important element to his interpretive style, inspiring an energetic and expressive musical personality that distinguishes his playing. Besides winning First Prize at the 2001 Arthur Rubinstein Piano Competition, Gerstein is the sixth recipient of the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award and recipient of an Avery Fisher Grant (2010).
