Russian pianist Kirill Gerstein is one of today’s most intriguing young musicians. Born in 1979 in Voronezh, Russia, he came to the U.S. at 14 to continue his studies in piano as the youngest student ever to attend Boston’s Berklee College of Music.  Kirill Gerstein was awarded First Prize at the 2001 Arthur Rubinstein Piano Competition in Tel Aviv, received a 2002 Gilmore Young Artist Award, and was chosen as Carnegie Hall’s “Rising Star” for the 2005-06 season.

Highlights of Mr. Gerstein’s 2009-10 North American season include debuts with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and with the Atlanta Symphony, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the Rochester Philharmonic; re-engagements with the Detroit, Houston, and Oregon Symphonies; and a tour with cellist Steven Isserlis that includes performances at the Kennedy Center and in San Francisco.
