2010 Gilmore Artist Kirill Gerstein displays a masterful technique, discerning intelligence, and a musical curiosity that has led him to explore repertoire spanning centuries and styles. A local audience favorite, he has proven to be one of today’s most intriguing and versatile musicians.

His recent performances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall have received broad acclaim, and his solo recital this past February at Wigmore Hall drew high praise for this "enviably complete musician" (Classical Source).
