Monet MGM's official press release for July 2010
posted 06/07/2010

Monet MGM presents two exciting young musicians who are generating enthusiastic praise from critics and audiences alike. As the winner of the Prix d'Honneur at the Verbier Festival in 2006 and recipient of a three year residency with The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York, cellist Jakob Koranyi has emerged as one of the most spectacular Scandinavian artists of today. He is a devoted chamber musician whose debut recording with works by Brahms, Britten, and Ligeti garnered great critical praise.

Fresh from his first prize win this June at the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Piano Competition in Brussels, Russian-born Denis Kozhukhin appeared in recital at Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall. Commenting on his performance of a Haydn sonata, The New York Times writes that "...his sensitive playing... left the strongest impression of Mr. Kozhukhin's gifts and potential."
