Details

Panagiotis Trochopoulos was born in Greece in 1982. He was a student of the legendary virtuoso pianist, Nikolai Petrov at Moscow Conservatory and graduated in May 2006. His repertoire includes 15 solo programmes and 30 concertos for piano and orchestra including the complete concertos of Rachmaninov, the Busoni Piano Concerto and concertos by Prokofiev, Brahms and Liszt. Trochopoulos has performed in the United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, Austria, Belarus, Croatia, Greece and the United States of America.

In November 2011 he took part in the very special ‘Musicians for Peace’ concert at Moscow’s Church of Christ the Saviour and was chosen to participate in a gala concert tribute to Marc-Andre Hameli as one of the ‘new stars of the Russian piano school’ in Moscow’s House of Music.

In 2013 he gave the Russian premiere of Alkan’s monumental Concerto for Solo Piano in the Tchaikovsky Museum in Moscow. His CDs for Cameo Classics are mainly world premiere recordings, including the piano concerto by Pavel Pabst.

Reviews

“Gareth Vaughan is the expert annotator. Given that many of these pieces are making premiere appearances, for a pianophile these two discs make for a splendid and representative Holbrooke selection.” Jonathan Woolf, musicweb-international.com
