Arcadi Volodos possesses everything he needs to implement his ideas on the piano: a powerful imagination, passion and phenomenal technique. With exceptional virtuosity, as well as a singular sense of rhythm, different nuances and poetry, Volodos narrates profound stories about infinite worlds. He also studied voice and conducting before dedicating his career exclusively to the piano and continuing his training at the Moscow conservatory and later on in Madrid and Paris.
Ever since his 1996 New York début, Volodos has been taking the stage with the world's leading orchestras, including the Berlin, New York and Munich philharmonics, and alongside such renowned conductors as Myung-Whun Chung, Lorin Maazel, Valery Gergiev, Zubin Mehta, Semyon Bychkov and Riccardo Chailly.
Playing an equally important part in his career are the solo recitals that he performs in the world's most storied concert halls, including the Wiener Konzerthaus, the Amsterdam Concertgebou...w, London's Barbican Centre and the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris. In addition to works by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Beethoven, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, Prokofiev and Ravel, his rich repertoire also includes pieces by such infrequently played composers as Mompou, Lecuona and de Falla.
His most recent album, a 2017 recording of compositions by Brahms, was hailed by critics as a milestone among the interpretations that had emerged thus far, and received many plaudits, including the Diapason d'Or and the Edison and Gramophone awards.
