2010 GILMORE YOUNG ARTIST Ivan Moshchuk
Pianist Ivan Moshchuk is emerging as a distinct and unconventional voice in the world of classical music. He has performed in major cities across Europe, North America, and Asia, on stages such as the Concertgebouw’s Kleine Zaal in Amsterdam and Orchestra Hall in Detroit. He has appeared in recital at the Gilmore, Banff, and Great Lakes Chamber Music Festivals, as a chamber musician alongside the Attacca and Telegraph Quartets, and collaborated with established orchestras, among them the Lansing Symphony and South Carolina Philharmonic.
Mr. Moshchuk’s debut album explored solo piano works of Beethoven and Rachmaninoff in relationship to the question of forgiveness. His second album features world premiere recordings of American-Italian composer David DiChiera and is issued on the Innova label. Mr. Moshchuk’s live performances have been broadcast on WFMT in Chicago and American Public Media’s Performance Today. Mr. Moshchuk’s writings on music have earned him invitations to speak at international conferences, most recently at the 9th European Music Analysis Conference in Strasbourg.
In 2016, his passion for collaboration brought him back to Detroit to create the Detroit Sessions, an initiative designed to bridge communities and elevate cultural vibrancy by bringing together different artistic disciplines in unexpected ways. The Detroit Sessions have welcomed guest artists such as Bruno Monsaingeon, have been featured on ClassicFM in London, and have collaborated with many of the major Arts organizations in the area, among them the Detroit Institute of Arts and Michigan Opera Theatre.
Following his concerto debut at age 11, Ivan received numerous awards and prizes, including First Prize at the Arthur Fraser International Piano Competition in 2007. In addition to master classes with such artists as Ivan Moravec and Mikhail Voskresensky, Ivan was invited to study under Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University, graduating in 2013. He then moved abroad to Paris to pursue independent studies in the visual arts and philosophy, becoming a resident of the Cité Internationale des Arts. In addition to being an alumni of the Verbier Festival Academy and IMS Prussia Cove, he is currently completing the corsi di perfezionamento at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome.
