Nikolai Anatolievich Demidenko studied at the Moscow Gnessin School and the Moscow Conservatoire. He was a finalist at the 1976 Montreal International Piano Competition and the 1978 Tchaikovsky International Competition. Granted British citizenship in 1995 he currently holds a visiting professorship at the University of Surrey. Nikolai is a specialist in Frédéric Chopin and a noted champion of the works of composers such as Franz Schubert and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
“He offered many gradations between powerful, downright steel chords and filigree delicate, glittering drive…could seductively create lovely moods as well as power-driven outbursts.”
