Vladimir Ovchinnikov

 

London recital

 

“Ovchinnikov is an immaculate performer with impeccable taste and a sense of deep repose, even when confronted by the most extravagant technical demands.”

 

THE INDEPENDENT (London)

 

Melbourne recital

 

“To perform Liszt is to be a player who is not only fearless but also temperamentally matched with the composer.  Ovchinnikov is both….Spellbound to the last chord, I yearned to walk out into the balm of the summer night with his poetry ringing in my ears.”

 

HERALD SUN (Melbourne)

 

Delaware recital

 

“…[Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition] calls for strength and stamina, as well as poetic and pianistic insights.  Ovchinnikov amply provided these and established himself as a major musical talent.”

 

DELAWARE GAZETTE

 

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

 

“Alternating extreme percussive power and softer sensitivity, his performance justified a garland of superlatives—coruscating, cascading, glittering, dazzling.”

 

  DORKING ADVERTISER 

 

Russian State Philharmonic Orchestra

 

“Ovchinnikov is noted for his clarity, power and tonal range.  His brilliant playing of the finale [Tchaikovsky Concerto No. 1] earned an ovation.”
