Mikhail Voskresensky is one of Russia's leading pianists. He is the winner of four international piano competitions (Schumann in Berlin, in Rio de Janeiro, George Enescu in Bucharest, and Van Cliburn in Fort Worth, Texas). In 1966 he was honoured with the Merited Artist of Russia award and in 1989, the People's Artist of Russia. Mikhail Voskresensky has extensive concert experience. He is the only pianist in Russia to perform all of Chopin's piano compositions during one concert season (in 1982-83, in nine recitals in the Maly Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire) Mikhail Voskresensky graduated from the Moscow Conservatoire where he studied under Ilia Klyachko, Boris Zemliansky, Yakob Milstein, Lev Oborin (piano) and Leonid Roizman (organ). As student of the famous Lev Oborin, the winner of the First Chopin's Competition in 1927, Voskresensky adopted his teacher's refined romanticism, and perfect taste in harmony with the piano's splendid sound. The images evoked by his playing suggest contrasting musical colours, never out of harmony, with a charming legato inducing the instrument to sing. "His playing fascinates audiences with its artistry, cordiality and ingeniousness. Mikhail Voskresensky is a very talented and intelligent musician", Oborin wrote about his pupil. Voskresensky's repertoire includes Beethoven's 32 sonatas, all the works of Chopin, and 54 piano concertos. He has performed with orchestras under the direction of more than 150 conductors, among them, John Pritchard, Franz Konwitschny, Kurt Masur, Eugeny Svetlanov, Stanislav Skrowachewsky, and Kirill Kondrashin. His 40 CD's include recent recordings of all sonatas and studies by Scriabin, "Pictures at an Exhibition" by Moussorgsky, and the Second Sonata by Shostakovich. Pupils of this well-known Professor of the Moscow Conservatoire have won 98 prizes in international competitions, among them 43 gold medals. Mikhail Voskresensky regularly gives master classes in Russia, France, Germany, Spain, Holland, the USA, Australia, Japan and other countries. He has participated as juror for international competitions in London, Leeds, Sydney, Tel Aviv, as well as for the Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov Competitions in Moscow. He continues to be Chairman of the Jury for the Scriabin International Competition in Moscow. Mikhail Voskresensky is President of the Scriabin International Society, the Patron of EPTA-RUSSIA (European Piano Teachers Association), and Guest Professor in the Toho Gakuen School in Tokyo. Although Mr. Voskresensky devotes many of his efforts to teaching and giving master classes in various countries, he undoubtedly considers his primary purpose to be performing. Voskresensky is an extraordinary and unique musician: when hearing his playing one can feel his sincere and subtle soul - a rare thing, indeed, in our rational times.

Analyse:
 

"Voskresensky is not only outstanding virtuoso, he lives in music and plunges into its depth as the greatest musician." -Semaines musicales- France "The personality of this artist is one that is rarely encountered today. His presence, his enormous power, as well as his technical and interpretive ability are reminiscent of legendary pianists like Ferrucio Busoni, Ignaz Paderewsky and Anton Rubinstein. This great pianist carries on with elegance and complete fidelity a tradition that sometimes seems to be lost." - Enrique Marquez Y Sauza - Mexico 2001 “This pianist really is a star in his own right; he doesn’t draw attention to himself but instead always to the music... Voskresensky is truly a master not only of his instrument, but of conveying the life of each phrase and the soul of each composer.” - Anthony Aibel, New York Concert Review - 2002
