About the Artist
Vladimir Ashkcnazy's life already encompasses several careers. As a pianist he has been a household name ever since he won First Prize in the 1962 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, and he appears each season in the great music capitals of the world, offering a wide range of works from his large repertoire.
In recent years, Mr. Ashkenazy has devoted an important part of his season to conducting. He has worked most closely with the Philharmonia Orchestra in innumerable concerts in England and on tours with the orchestra in Europe, North America, Japan, and Australia. He has also worked with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, both at home and abroad, including a major European tour in September 1985. From 1986 onward, he will be spending many weeks each season with the Cleveland Orchestra and the Concertgcbouw Orchestra of Amsterdam. He has also appeared with the orchestras of Philadelphia, Boston, Detroit, and the Swedish Radio Orchestra.
Highlighting Vladimir Ashkcnazy's 1985-86 season were conducting engagements with the Cleveland Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and recitals in Cleveland, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Toronto, and at Avery Fisher Hall in New York. In the current season, he will conduct and play on tour with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra throughout the United States, with an appearance at Carnegie Hall. One of his many conducting dates with the Cleveland Orchestra will also take place at Carnegie Hall. In addition, his recital schedule includes a return engagement at Avery Fisher Hall and joint recitals with Swedish soprano Elisabeth Sodcrstrom at Carnegie Hall and in Baltimore.
A London Records exclusive artist, Vladimir Ashkenazy possesses a discography covering almost all the major works for piano by Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, and Scriabin. As a conductor, his list of recordings is growing rapidly and already encompasses the Rachmaninoff Symphonies with the Concertgebouw, Sibelius and Beethoven Symphonies and Mozart Piano Concertos with the Philharmonia, and works by Prokofieff and Strauss with the Cleveland Orchestra. He is also extremely active as a chamber musician, notably in partnership with Itzhak Perlman and Lynn Harrcll, with whom he has performed and recorded many of the great works of the Classical and Romantic periods.
Born in Russia in 1937, Ashkenazy first studied with his parents, both professional pianists. At the age of eight he entered the Central Music School in Moscow, studying with Anaida Sumbatian, and in 1955 entered the class of Lev Oborin at the Moscow Conservatory. He became internationally known when, at age 19, he won First Prize in the 1956 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. Subsequent concert tours took him to Europe and North America, and in 1962 he was joint First Prize winner (with John Ogdon) in the Tchaikovsky Competition. He emigrated from the Soviet Union in 1963, ultimately became a citizen of Iceland in 1972, and currently resides in Switzerland.
In Ann Arbor the pianist has given four recitals prior to this afternoon, and appeared once as conductor and pianist with the English Chamber Orchestra.
