Russian born Vitaly Pisarenko, will perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3, under the baton of Damian Iorio.
Damian conducted Vitaly with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra when he won 1st Prize at the 8th International Franz Liszt Piano Competition in the Netherlands in 2008. This success led to a packed tour schedule of world-wide engagements. Now Vitaly will perform with Damian once again and MKCO is delighted to reunite such a successful international pairing.
The concert also plays to Damian’s own Italian roots with Shubert’s Overture in the Italian style and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No.4 , The Italian.
In 2015 Vitaly was awarded Third Prize Winner at the Leeds International Piano Competition. Pisarenko has appeared with the North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra at the Beethoven Festival in Warsaw, Brno Philharmonic, Gelders Orkest and KBS Symphony Orchestra and in recital at the Wigmore Hall, Teatro Colon, de Singel Antwerp, Musikverein Vienna, as well as a tour of China including performances at NCPA Beijing and Shanghai Concert Hall.
