*6 VII 1937 Gorki

Russian-born pianist and conductor VLADIMIR ASHKENAZY first came to prominence as runner-up in the Chopin Competition in Warsaw (1955) and winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels (1956). Since then he has built an extraordinary career, not only as one of the most outstanding pianists of the twentieth century, but as an inspirational artist engaged in a vast range of activities. For the last thirty years, he has focussed mainly on conducting, continuing his longstanding relationship with the Philharmonia Orchestra, of which he is Conductor Laureate, including a recent tour of Latin America with soloists Nelson Freire and Esther Yoo. Ashkenazy is Music Director of the European Union Youth Orchestra and Conductor Laureate of both the Iceland and NHK symphony orchestras. He has previously worked with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and maintains strong links with other major orchestras, including the Cleveland Orchestra and Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin. As a pianist, his varied discography includes the Grammy award-winning Shostakovich Preludes and Fugues, Rautavaara's Piano Concerto No. 3, Bach's Wohltemperierte Klavier, Rachmaninov transcriptions and Beethoven's Diabelli Variations. Spring 2013 saw the release of ‘Ashkenazy: 50 Years on Decca', a 50-CD box-set celebrating his long-standing relationship with the label. Ashkenazy has also been involved in many TV projects and developed educational programmes with NHK TV, including Superteachers, working with inner-city London school children.
