Mikhail Rudy

 

Baltimore Symphony

 

“Rudy tops the list of pianists who tackle the Rachmaninov [Concerto No. 1]. In bold strokes through harrowing terrain, he took careful liberties in rubato phrasing, articulating brutal passage work incisively.” 

WASHINGTON POST

 

 

St. Louis Symphony

 

“It’s an appealing engaging work [Bartok’s Piano Concerto No. 3], made more so by Rudy’s strong, high-octane performance.” 

ST. LOUIS-DISPATCH

 

 

Vancouver Symphony

 

“… so consistently thought out and so brilliantly executed an interpretation proved a rewarding approach to this over-familiar warhorse – one that made for exhilarating listening." [Rachmaninov Concerto No. 3]

VANCOUVER SUN

 


CD Review

 

“… [Mikhail Rudy’s] account of Scarbo  [Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit] is not only one of the finest of all, but one of the best ever put on disc …This is playing of the highest order of imagination.”

Mariss Jansons’ 60th birthday celebration/Pittsburgh

 

“The superhuman virtuosity [Rudy] exhibited made it far and away the musical highlight of the night [Petrushka transcribed for solo piano by Stravinsky and Rudy].”
