Hristo Kazakov – piano
The Piano Sonata in B minor by Franz Liszt, a brilliant highlight of his work, is regarded as important and technically demanding music of the Romantic period. Hristo Kazakov also plays Frédéric Chopin's Barcarolle op. 60 and Claude Debussy's Images.
Hristo Kazakov was born in Sofia. In 1992 he graduated from the music high school, with distinction. He won the prize in the National Bulgarian Chamber Music Competition «Johannes Brahms».
Between 1992 and 1996 he studied at the Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music with Professor Dimo Dimov. This was followed by concert activities, courses and teaching assignments in contemporary classical music. He completed his master's degree with a thesis on Alexander Scriabin with the grade "Outstanding" and won a scholarship for the conservatory in Fontainebleau.
Hristo Kazakov continued his education in master classes with musicians in France, such as Philippe Entremont and Philippe Bianconi, with a particular emphasis on the music of French Impressionism. He lives and works in Switzerland. As a soloist and ensemble musician he participates in concert tours in Switzerland, Bulgaria, Japan, New Zealand, Thailand, England, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Armenia, Hong Kong and Australia.
His concerts with works by J. S. Bach, especially his interpretations of "The Art of Fugue" and the "Goldberg Variations", received enthusiastic applause, as did his artistic performance of Claude Debussy's 24 Préludes. Another highlight of his performances was his interpretations of works by A. Scriabin, M. Ravel, C. Debussy, F. Busoni, R. Schumann and S. Rachmaninov, as well as W. A. Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 K. 488 and F. Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1.
In May 2013, the American magazine "Fanfare" described Kazakov's CD "Goldberg Variations" as one of the best interpretations.
His repertoire includes all piano sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven, 24 Preludes and Fugues by Dmitri Shostakovich, The Well-Tempered Clavier and The Art of Fugue by J. S. Bach.
