CANNON BEACH — Pianist Vladislav Kosminov, an Uzbekistan native, will perform at Cannon Beach Community Church (132 E. Washington St.) on the church’s newly acquired 2008 Steinway Model B Grand Piano 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11.
Sponsored by Portland Piano International, this concert is free and open to the public.
Kosminov made his California debut in January 2015 performing Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.1 with Maestro Jon Robertson and the Redlands Symphony. The performance was described by Redlands Daily Facts as a “concert … with music simply flowing through his fingers and floating like liquid gold in intricate patterns up and down the keyboard.”
As the winner of the 2013 Lynn Concerto Competition, Kosminov made his U.S. debut in October of that year under the baton of Maestro Guillermo Figueroa, performing Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 1.
Previously, he was a prizewinner of several international and national competitions.
In 2015, he was one of the prizewinners of the George Gershwin International Competition in Brooklyn, New York.
Coming from a musical family, Mr. Kosminov was trained as a solo pianist. At home he studied at the Academic Musical Lyceum for gifted children named after Vladimir Uspensky. He has performed in various cities and historical places in Uzbekistan.
