About the Artist

Watch Konstantin perform his transcription of the final Trio from Richard Strauss' opera "Der Rosenkavalier"

Konstantin Soukhovetski is regarded as an original creative force among the pianists of his generation, in a concertizing career that has gained him audiences’ tributes and critics’ accolades in the US, Africa, Asia, and Europe. A recipient of over 17 awards and winner of top prizes at the Cleveland, Naumburg, and UNISA competitions, Konstantin has made his reputation applying his singular interpretive vision and natural virtuosity to the cornerstones of solo and concerto repertory, as confirmed by his renewed engagements and steady partnership with conductors. Konstantin is internationally acknowledged also as a composer, since the premiere of his transcription of R. Strauss’ Four Last Songs at L’Esprit du Piano festival in Bordeaux (France).

Some highlights of Konstantin’s career include critically acclaimed performances at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater, Paris’ Musée du Louvre, Bern’s Paul Klee Zentrum, and Carnegie’s Weill and Zankel halls. For his debut at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall, Konstantin was praised on the NYTimes Arts Section cover: “Romanticism so intense it warms up Philip Glass.” The Independent gave 5 stars to Konstantin’s Wigmore Hall London debut, with a glowing review of Schubert’s last sonata: “...he let his vision take him where it would, and the result was revelatory, as was his handling of the sonata’s ambiguous close.”

This year, Konstantin returns to NYC’s Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall with Pegasus: The Orchestra, playing Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No. 4. Other engagements this season include Brooklyn Chamber Orchestra, SOLO DUE with Jacopo Giacopuzzi at La Jolla’s The Conrad (CA), Vashon PianoFete (WA), and Del Mar International Composer’s Symposium (CA). In March 2023, Konstantin premieres his transcription of Pascual Aldave’s Akelarre, commissioned by OE Oficina for his second Spanish concert tour at the Victoria Eugenia Theater in St. Sebastián, Alkiza and Arrecife, the Canary Islands.

In 2020, Konstantin joined the adjunct faculty of his alma mater, The Juilliard School, where he received his BM, MM, and AD with Jerome Lowenthal. Konstantin has been recently named
Director of Pedagogy and Narrative Musicianship at Bronx School for Music. Konstantin is deeply committed to musical education, regularly teaching masterclasses, interactive lecture performances, and residency programs with the Greater Connecticut Youth Orchestras, the ACES Educational Center for the Arts (CT), and the Grand Piano Series (FL), among many others. Since 2011, Konstantin has served as Artist-in-Residency at Paul Schenly’s Pianofest in the Hamptons, of which he is an alumnus (2000-2007). Other teaching engagements have taken Konstantin traveling around the world to the Cincinnati College-Conservatory, The Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Singapore), the Shantou Piano Museum (China), the New England Piano Teachers Association, and The Piano League, to name a few. Konstantin has served on the jury panel of the Piano Ohio Competition, the Hong Kong Music Schools Festival, the Perfect Tone competition in Indonesia and was on the screening jury of CIPC’s 2020 Virtu(al)oso International Piano Competition.
