“E.Mikhailov is an excellent pianist demonstrating bright emotionality and depth of interpretation. He is a brilliant performer of Scriabin's and Rachmaninoff's music; his recording of Scriabin's sonatas is outstanding.”
-- Paul Badura-Skoda

About

Hailed by critics for his “incontestable musical talent and musicality” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Germany), “refinement of his sound” (Piano, Great Britain) as well as “passion, sincerity and lyricism” (Culture, Russia), Mr. Mikhailov has performed over four hundred concerts around the world. He has appeared at such prestigious venues as the Civic Auditorium in Los Angeles, Steinway Hall in New York, St. Martin in the Fields in London, Berlin Philharmonic Hall, Concert hall “G. Verdi'' in Milan, Salle Cortot in Paris, and City Hall in Hong Kong. He is also a regular guest at many international festivals including Berlin- Moskau, the Lucerne International Music Festival, and the Bergen (Norway) International Festival.
Mr. Mikhailov has performed as a soloist with such orchestras as Deutsche Symphonie Orchester Berlin, Russian National Orchestra, Orchestre National de Belgique, St. Petersburg Academic Philharmonic, National Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra of Montevideo (Uruguay), Mexico City Philharmonic, and the Buenos Aires Philharmonic.
Evgeni Mikhailov is a prizewinner of many international piano competitions including Scriabin International Piano Competition (Moscow, Russia), Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition (Los Angeles, USA), Pozzoli International Piano Competition (Milan, Italy), and Eriksson International Piano Competition (Sweden) among others.
Evgeni Mikhailov is an acknowledged master of the so-called “Silver Age” of Russian music – the works of Medtner, Rachmaninoff, and Scriabin. His performances in the Great and Small Halls of the Moscow Conservatory, Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, and Great Hall of St. Petersburg Philharmonic have become a valuable tradition, and his creation has garnered rave reviews from the international music press including Musical Review and Culture (Russia), Los Angeles Times (USA), Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany), Kärntner Tageszeitung (Austria), Musical Life (Russia), Piano (Great Britain), Observer (Sweden), La Nation (Argentina) and others.
Mr. Mikhailov has been on the jury of many national and international piano competitions. He has also conducted seminars and master classes in many cities of Russia, the United States, South Korea, Sweden, and Switzerland. In 2006 he was invited to give masterclasses and lectures at the World Piano Pedagogy Conference in the USA. Many of his students are laureates of Russian national and international competitions and have active concert and teaching careers in Russia and abroad.
