Recorded live at the Great Hall of the Moscow conservatoire, 30 06 2000.
Karen Kornienko was born in 1974. After graduating from the Moscow conservatoire where he studied under professors E. Malinin and V. Gornostaeva from 1993 to 1998, he then continued as a postgraduate student under professor V. Gornostaeva until 2000. Karen Kornienko was a prizewinner at the I and II International Scriabin piano competitions in Nizhny Novgorod (1995) and Moscow (2000), and won the Grand Prix and four special prizes in the II International Rachmaninov competition in Moscow in 1997. He is a Laureate of the "New Names" International Charity Programme and is a soloist of the Moscow State Philharmony. He has toured extensively in Russia, Ukraine, Germany, France, Austria, Italy and Kuwait. Mstislav Rostropovich highly appreciates Karen's talent, and invited him to perform at the Evian's festival in France, where he played Rachmaninov's III piano concerto with great success. In 1999 he had a Rachmaninov recital on the "Settimane musicale di Stresa" festival. Many of his recitals were broadcasted by radio and television companies (BBC, Radio of Russia, Radio "Orpheus", canal "Culture" and others). Karen Kornienko is very interested in the genre of piano transcriptions, and has given-solo programmes of his own transcriptions as a regular part of his repertoire.
In 2002 there were published scores of the Symphonic suite by K.Kornienko on P.Tchaikovsky ballet «The Nutcracker» and his new CD, consisting only of his arrangements of music to «Swan Lake» and «The Nutcracker» by P.Tchaikovsky and to Three Fairy tail pictures («Baba Yaga», «Magical Lake», «Kikimora») for the symphony orchestra by A.Liadov.
"Among the great number of young pianists, Karen Kornienko stands out as having start quality with a combination of qualities that are rarely concentrated in one performer The-peculiartty of his performance is high professionalism, virtuosity, intuition, a diverse and polyphonic sound palette, sense of style, and, at the same time, deep musicality and spirituality."
Professor A. Nasedkin, People's Artist of Russia. "I know the pianist Karen Kornienko, as a great creative artist and a vivid performer. All he performs compels the listener. His artistic talent shows a very wide scale of thinking. As an artist he is seen first of all as a romanticist. His hands easily master technical difficulties many of which are practically insuperable for others, and yet he conveys a free, natural sound. For example, the 24 Etudes-by Chopin were learned and performed in recitals over a 12-month period as if they fell naturally under his hands. But we should not set limits on the spectrum of his talents simply as a performer of remantic music Karen Kornienko is also a talented composer and this brings other specific gifts to his potential career. He surpasses traditional boundaries and promises to be one of the exceptional artists of the future".
Professor V. Gomostaeva, People's Artist of Russia. "Karen Kornienko is a concert pianist of outstanding talent, a brilliant interpreter arid virtuoso".
Profesor.V. Merzhanov, People's Artist of the USSR.
