Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra at Hexagon, Reading

PUBLISHED: 14:14 02 May 2014




This large Russian orchestra will perform favourite works by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Shostakovich on Wednesday, 21 May, with 26-year-old pianist Natasha Paremski.

Over the decades, the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra has given nearly 5,500 concerts in more than 50 countries worldwide, performing at the best concert halls and prestigious festivals around the world.

Moscow-born Natasha moved to the United States at the age of eight, becoming a US citizen in 1991. She had begun piano studies at four with Nina Malikova at Moscow’s Andreyev School of Music. She then attended the San Francisco Conservatory of Music before moving to New York to study with Pavlina Dokovska at Mannes College of Music, from which she graduated in 2007.

With a strong focus on new music, Natasha’s growing repertoire reflects an artistic maturity beyond her years. Natasha was awarded the Gilmore Young Artists prize in 2006 at the age of 18, the Prix Montblanc in 2007, the Orpheum Stiftung Prize in Switzerland. In September 2010, she was awarded the Classical Recording Foundation’s Young Artist of the Year.
