Behzod Abduraimov, piano

Sun Feb 10 2019 3pm
Chan Shun Concert Hall

Presented by the Vancouver Recital Society

This exciting young pianist makes a welcome return after dazzling VRS audiences in his previous appearances. His electrifying pianism, with its range of great delicacy and thundering power, makes the “Abduraimov experience” impossible to describe in words. If you heard him bring the house down at the Chan Centre with Balakirev’s ‘Islamey’, you’ll be at the front of the line for tickets to this concert!

“The Uzbek pianist, Behzod Abduraimov made two dream debuts in Amsterdam this week. His secret: authenticity, control and a velvet pianissimo”— Mischa Spel, NRC (October 2017 Concertgebouw debut)
