A concert to honor Carmen Linares and Maritza Kitras, winners of the prestigious Adriana Orillac prize, the highest tribute given to Panamanian pianists, will take place on Monday, June 30 at the Athenaeum of the City of Knowledge at 8:00 p.m. This year the guest artist is the Russian virtuoso, Nikolay Khozyainov, who will interpret music by Robert Schumann and Federico Chopin.
Khozyainov, who started playing the piano at the age of five, has won several international piano competitions in Czechoslovakia, Romania, Poland, Australia and Ireland. In 2011 he launched his CD, “Khozyainov,” in which he interpreted pieces by Chopin and Liszt.
He recently began his first international tour of the Americas, sponsored by Yamaha Latin America and Productos Superiores S.A. (SUPRO). The “Yamaha Latin America Premium Piano Tour 2014” includes presentations in Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Panama.
