Now Through July 16

Rustem Hayroudinoff has performed to critical acclaim in Japan, the USA, Latin America, Canada, Russia and Europe.

His CD of the complete Rachmaninoff Preludes was selected by Classic FM Magazine as part of its ‘Essential Rachmaninoff Collection’ together with the recordings of Arthur Rubinstein and André Previn. His disc of the complete Rachmaninoff Études-Tableaux was hailed as a ‘benchmark recording’ and became BBC Music’s Instrumental Choice of the Month, as well as being nominated for the Best Instrumental CD of the Year.

Hayroudinoff studied at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire, the Royal Academy of Music, and privately with well known pianist and one of my favorite Murray Perahia. Hayroudinoff is a Professor of Piano at the Royal Academy of Music, London.

A number of compositions by Bach, Chopin and Rachmaninoff are scheduled for the repertoire for this concert.

Definitely not to be missed! Steinway Society – The Bay Area is a nonprofit organization based in Silicon Valley.

Now in its 28th season, this dedicated group of musicians, pianists, teachers, and arts lovers promotes excellence in piano performance and music education. Bravo!
