Ilya Yakushev (Piano)

Ilya Yakushev, a fresh and exciting new presence in the piano world, has many awards and honors to his credit, and has performed at major venues on three continents.

As first prize and Gold Medal winner at the 2005 World Piano Competition in Cincinnati, Ohio, he toured the USS in the spring of 2006 and presented a solo recital at Alice Tully Hall in April 2007. As Grand Prize Winner of the 2004 Mannes College Concerto Competition, Mr Yakushev made his Tully Hall debut as soloist in Prokofievґs Third Piano Concerto with the Mannes Orchestra under the baton of Metropolitan Opera conductor Paul Nadler, a performance that was subsequently broadcast on WQXR-FM.

Mr Yakushev has further proven his abilities as a concert soloist by organising and producing three concerts at Mannes, accompanied by orchestras consisting of Mannes students and alumni who expressed their regard for his talents by participating as volunteers. In the spring of 2005, he performed a concert featuring Prokofievґs Second Concerto and Beethovenґs Third Concerto. In March 2006, he performed three piano concerti in one evening: Saint-Saлnsґ Second Concerto, Ravelґs Concerto in G and Prokofievґs First Concerto, in a concert conducted by his teacher at Mannes, legendary pianist Vladimir Feltsman. In February 2007 he went one step further, performing four concerti in one evening in his final performance as a student at Mannes, also conducted by Maestro Feltsman.

Last season, Mr Yakushev received enthusiastic critical acclaim for his bravura performances of Prokofievґs Second Piano Concerto at the Arkansas Symphonyґs opening concert in September 2006, and of Prokofievґs First and Fourth Piano Concerti at the Prokofiev Festival of the San Francisco Symphony under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas. He attracted international attention through his European tour in December 2006, presenting solo recitals at such venues as the Bechstein Center (Berlin), the Musikverein (Vienna) and the Rubinstein Academy (Dusseldorf). He also toured Southeast Asia, performing in Singapore and Malaysia. In past seasons, he has performed in various prestigious venues including Alice Tully Hall (New York), the Glinka Philharmonic Hall (St Petersburg), Victoria Hall (Singapore), the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall (New York), the Davies Symphony Hall (San Francisco) and the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts (Seoul, South Korea).

Mr Yakushev received his first award at age twelve as a prize-winner of the Young Artistsґ Concert Competition in his native St Petersburg. In 1997, he received the Mayor of St Petersburgґs Young Talents award, and in both 1997 and 1998 he won first prize at the Donostia Hiria International Piano Competition in San Sebastian, Spain. In 1998, he received Russiaґs Award for Excellence in Performance, presented to him by the Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation in Moscow. Most recently, Mr Yakushev became a recipient of the prestigiousGawon International Music Societyґs Award in Seoul, South Korea. In addition to his performing career, Mr Yakushev is presently serving as Executive Director of the International Keyboard Institute and Festival at Mannes, founded and directed by Jerome Rose, a position he has held since 2000.
