Behzod Abduraimov

Untitled Document

Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in 1990, Behzod began to play the piano at the age of five as a pupil of Tamara Popovich at Uspensky State Central Lyceum in Tashkent. He is an alumnus of Park University’s International Center for Music (ICM), where he studied with Stanislav Ioudenitch and now serves as the ICM’s artist-in-residence.

Recent seasons have seen Behzod work with leading orchestras worldwide, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Munich Philharmonic, NHK Symphony and the Czech Philharmonic, and prestigious conductors including Vladimir Ashkenazy, Valery Gergiev, Edo de Waart, Manfred Honeck, Vasily Petrenko, James Gaffigan and Vladimir Jurowski. Continuing his collaboration with the Mariinsky Orchestra and Valery Gergiev, last season Behzod performed in their Prokofiev Piano Concerto cycle at concerts in Stockholm, Vienna and Dortmund.  This was followed by a major tour of the US with them, which included his concerto debut at Carnegie Hall. Shortly afterwards he gave his recital debut in the Weill Hall as part of the “Distinctive Debuts” series which resulted in an immediate re-invitation to the Stern Auditorium.
