New Orleans International Piano Competition gold medalist to perform solo concert at Loyola

March 28, 2008

Loyola continues next week’s exciting pianist offerings by featuring Konstantin Soukhovetski, gold medal winner of the New Orleans International Piano Competition, in a solo concert. Arranged as part of his prize package, the concert will include an array of challenging piano pieces by Schubert, Mozart and Rachmaninoff. The concert takes place Monday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m. in Roussel Performance Hall on Loyola’s main campus. For a complete listing of performed works, please see below.

Born in Moscow, Soukhovetski began his music training at a very young age. As a teenager, he traveled to The United States to study at The Julliard School in New York City where he received both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music. Among the numerous awards he has received, Soukhovetski placed third in the 2003 Cleveland International Piano Competition, won Julliard’s 2003 Gina Bachauer Competition and won the 2002 Hilton Head International Piano Competition. According to Soukhovetski, “to be a musician is to have the privilege of connecting the hearts and thoughts of the composers with that of the audience. The power of music transcends time and space and we are ale to feel the fever, excitement and tragedy of people and worlds long since gone.”
