Winner of the Percy Grainger Second Prize at the 2016 Sydney International Piano Competition, Tarasevich-Nikolaev will delight classical music fans  with a program including Mozart’s Fantasia in D minor K.397, Chopin’s Berceuse Op.57, Rachmaninoff’s 6 Moments musicaux Op.16 and more.

Tarasevich-Nikolaev, the grandson of famous Russian pianist Tatyana Nikolayeva, made his public debut at the age of nine with the Bryansk City Chamber Orchestra. He has since won the 5th International Scriabin Piano Competition, was awarded second prize for the performance of Russian music at the Cleveland International Piano Competition and second prize at the Grieg International Piano Competition in Bergen.

The young pianist has toured in Germany, France, UK, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Norway, Lithuania, Poland, Israel, Macedonia, China, Japan, USA and Mexico as well as performed with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra ‘Evgeny Svetlanov’, the Cleveland Orchestra and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. In April 2018, he made his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra with Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Piano Concerto and later this year will tour Europe under the baton of Sir Roger Norrington with Beethoven’s 5th Piano Concerto.

In addition, his debut album, Moments Musicaux is set to be released in late 2018, after he signed an exclusive deal with Decca Classics and Universal Music immediately following the 2016 Competition.

Tarasevich-Nikolaev said, “I am so pleased and excited to be returning to Australia to play for all the wonderful audiences around the country. Australia has a very special place in my heart and I thank the Sydney International Piano Competition for this wonderful and generous career development opportunity.”

Sydney International Piano Competition’s Artistic Director, Piers Lane AO said, “What we have with Arseny is a young pianist capable of a great things and he is certainly someone to follow over the years. We are extremely pleased that this tour has been possible. I encourage you to come and hear this extraordinary young man and let him dazzle you with his Russian flair.”
