Andrei Korobeinikov

Born in Russia in 1986, Korobeinikov took his first piano lessons at the age of five, making his professional recital debut just three years later. Clearly in possession of a prodigious gift for music, in 2001 he entered the Moscow’s State Tchaikovsky Conservatoire, studying in the class of Professor Andreï Diev. Upon graduation, he was awarded the unusual honour of Best Musician of the Decade, before going on to obtain a post-graduate performance degree from the Royal College of Music, London.

Korobeinikov now enjoys a top-level career as a concert pianist, performing with many of the world’s leading orchestras. Recent and forthcoming concerto highlights include those with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, NHK Symphony Orchestra Tokyo, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Wiener Symphoniker. He enjoys a particularly strong profile in France, where he performs regularly with such orchestras as the Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre National de France, Orchestre Philharmonique de Marseille and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio-France Amongst those conductors with whom Korobeinikov has made lasting musical partnerships are Alain Altinoglu, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Jean-Claude Casadesus, Vladimir Fedoseyev, Iván Fischer, Lawrence Foster, Okko Kamu, Mikhail Pletnev, Andris Poga, Yuri Temirkanov, and Antoni Wit.

It is in recital that Korobeinikov’s expansive mind and extraordinary musical gifts perhaps find their most symbiotic balance: he has become renowned for his fascinating programming skills, in which poetry and literature meet music in perfect harmony. Recent and forthcoming highlights of his recital diary include the stages of many of the world’s most hallowed concert halls, including Het Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Teatro alla Scala, Tonhalle Zürich, and London’s Wigmore Hall, amongst others.

In addition, Andreï Korobeinikov is a devoted chamber musician. His piano trio with Vadim Repin (violin) and Alexander Kniazev (cello) is widely celebrated, meeting with glowing critical acclaim. Additionally, Korobeinikov enjoys regular collaborations with such esteemed artists as Boris Berezovsky, Henri Demarquette, Johannes Moser, and the Borodin Quartet. His chamber music constellations are a regular feature at many of the world’s most prestigious summer festivals, including the Gstaad Menuhin Festival, La Roque d’Anthéron, La Folle Journée de Nantes, Nohant Festival Chopin and the Verbier Festival, amongst others.
