The pianist Arcadi Volodos gives a concert in the cultural hall of Eppan
Music critics celebrate him almost effusively - as a "magician of the piano" and a "virtuoso magician". The internationally acclaimed Russian pianist Arcadi Volodos is now coming to Eppan at the invitation of KulturKontakt.
In his tireless search for musical depth, his art oscillates between poetry, ascetic austerity and devoted temperament. "Joy, love, passion and melancholy - all this can also be found in the lives of great composers," says Volodos, "but in music these states reach a higher, sublimated state."
The piano was not the first choice for Volodos, who was born in St. Petersburg in 1972. As the son of a married couple of musicians, he initially received singing lessons before starting to play the piano at the age of eight. As a teenager, however, he also devoted himself to conducting and led the orchestra of the St. Petersburg Conservatory. Only then did the piano become the focus of his artistic work.
Arcadi Volodos regularly performs in the most important concert halls around the world. Having him as a guest in Eppan is nothing less than a minor sensation.
