Denis Kozhukhin




Born in 1986 in Nijni Novgorod, Denis Kozhukhin began studying piano at the age of five with his mother, before entering the Balakirev School in the class of Natalia Fish. From 2000 to 2007, he studied at the Queen Sofia Conservatory in Madrid with Dimitri Bashkirov and Claudio Martinez-Mehner. He made his name on the international scene by winning the first prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 2010. His first CD, devoted to concertos by Grieg and Tchaikovsky, was unanimously acclaimed by the critics. In 2018, a second album, including works by Ravel and Gershwin, was also well received. Finally, in 2020, his reading of César Franck’s Variations Symphoniques, for the Pentatone label, was received with widespread enthusiasm. For some years now, Denis Kozhukin has received regular advice from Daniel Barenboim.
