Sergei Kvitko

The career of Sergei Kvitko is as diverse as it is successful. As a pianist, Mr. Kvitko has captured the attention of music critics with his "polished pianism'¦ glorious Horowitzian three-dimensional perspective" (Gramophone Magazine), "masterful, intuitive playing'¦ arresting artistry'¦ an iconoclastic sense for rubato rhythm and phrasing" (Fanfare Magazine), and has been praised for his 'œluminous touch'¦ warm, round sound'¦ plenty of brilliance' as well as "a natural, appealing musicality and sensual understanding of piano tone" (The Chronicle-Herald).

He has made solo, chamber and orchestral appearances in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Austria, Russia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. What makes Kvitko's career truly unique, is that his artistic accomplishments are balanced by his reputation as an internationally sought-after classical recording engineer and producer of the highest caliber. As a composer, he has also garnered multiple awards.
