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.”




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.”




Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


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




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.”
