Morgans International Piano Series 2017

Behzod Abduraimov will bring his staggering technique and artistic genius to bear in this recital of Liszt, Bach–Busoni, Schubert and Prokofiev.
Abduraimov’s interpretation of the Rachmaninov Second, combines spectacular technique and graceful finesse. This is a pianist who has it all: silky delicacy, mighty thunder-power, rare clarity and the ability to draw a remarkable variety of tonal colours from the instrument.
