CRITIC REVIEWS:

"The [above] in-recital recording made at Snape Maltings, has depth, clarity, and warmth that show the pianist at his best….He should return to Maltings as soon as possible and complete that which he so magnificently started."

- Alan Becker, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, March/April., 2006



“Berezovsky studied at the Moscow Conservatory with Eliso Wirsaladze and privately with Alexander Satz. Following his London début at the Wigmore Hall in 1988, THE TIMES described him as ‘an artist of exceptional promise, a player of dazzling virtuosity and formidable power’.

In May 2005 he had his first solo recital in Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris and played in the same venue in January 2006 with the Orchestre National de France. In January 2007 he played seven recitals ‘Carte Blanche’ in the Louvre. In May 2009, he premiered Karol Beffa's Piano concerto in Toulouse, with Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and Tugan Sokhiev as conductor.

He has initiated and organized the International Medtner Festival that took place 2006 and 2007 in Moscow, Yekaterinburg and Vladimir, as he has championed the composer since the early 1990s and has been one of the foremost recent interpreters of Medtner's music.

With the Mirare Label, he has recorded the Rachmaninoff Préludes (May 2005) as well as that composer's complete Piano Concertos with the Ural Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Dmitri Liss (August 2005).”
