Maxim Lando, piano
To close our season, multi-award-winning New Yorker Maxim Lando will take the stage. This young pianist has already been described as a "dazzling fire-eater” (ARTS San Francisco), a “pianist who dares to do things not considered by others” (ConcertNet, The Classical Music Network) and as “a total musical being” (The New Criterion). He was lauded by Anthony Tommasini in the New York Times as displaying “brilliance and infectious exuberance in his New York debut” combined with “impressive delicacy” and a “wild-eyed danger.” Maxim’s triumphant performances of the pillar classical works for the piano are matched by his innovative arrangements across genres. He is crafting a personalized program for Virtuosi to reflect the music that is important to him, paying tribute to the past and looking toward the future.
