Oxana Shevchenko: winner of the 2010 Scottish International Piano Competition

On 19 September 2010, a rapt audience in Glasgow’s City Halls witnessed the 23-year-old Kazakhstani pianist emerge decisively on the international stage. She had already won the International Music Critics’ Prize at the 2009 Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition, and now carried away first prize with unanimous approval from a distinguished international jury.

This recital, recorded just three days after her triumph in the concerto final, reveals her extraordinary command of structure, rhythmic dynamism and sheer pianistic exuberance.

"This is the most exciting debut disc to come my way for some time...It will only take the opening bars of "Alborada" to convince you what a fine Ravel player she is...while Thea Musgrave's specially commissioned Snapshots is convincingly made a welcome addition to the repertoire...it is a rare gift to convey on disc also the sheer joy of performing as Miss Shevchenko does."
