“…Conclusion: A brilliantly colorful and pianistically brilliantly designed piano recital.” Michael Wruss, NEWS, March 2022

Praised for his extremely sensitive playing and technical brilliance, Alexei Volodin is in demand with orchestras of the highest caliber. He has an extraordinarily diverse repertoire that ranges from Beethoven and Brahms to Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev and Scriabin to Shchedrin and Medtner.

Highlights of the 2022/23 season include return appearances with the Singapore Symphony, Philharmonia Orchestra, Winnipeg Symphony, Orchester Philharmonique Royal de Liège and Euskadiko Orkestra, as well as debut appearances with the Kyoto Symphony, Orchester Philharmonique de Strasbourg and Sinfonieorchester Wuppertal. Volodin will join the Orchester de chambre fribourgeois at the Besançon International Music Festival and tour Belgium and the Netherlands with the Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen performing Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1. He returns to the SWR Symphonieorchester and will give duo performances with Igor Levit at Wigmore Hall and the Lucerne Piano Festival.

In previous seasons he has performed with the Orchester symphonique de Montréal, NCPA Orchestra China, BBC Symphony Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra, Orchester de la Suisse Romande, Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, Mariinsky Orchestra and St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and worked with conductors Semyon Bychkov, Stanislav Kochanovsky and Robert Trevino.
