Winner of the 2006 Gilmore Young Artist Award, virtuoso pianist Natasha Paremski, who was described by BBC Music Magazine as having “flawless technique and unstoppable energy”, continues to charm audiences throughout Europe and the U.S. Only twenty years old, her past engagements include performances with the San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Baltimore Symphony, Colorado Symphony, Houston Symphony, New York Youth Symphony at Carnegie Hall, San Diego Symphony, the Orpheum Foundation for the Advancement of Young Soloists (with the Tonhalle Orchestra in Zurich), Residentie Orchestra and Royal Scottish National Orchestra. She has also given recitals at London’s Wigmore Hall, the Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, on Ravinia’s Rising Stars series, in Seattle, at the Schloss Elmau and Verbier festivals, and on the Gilmore Rising Stars Series.
Natasha Paremski has also demonstrated a strong focus on new music and has extended her activities outside of the traditional concert hall, including an appearance in a BBC documentary on Tchaikovsky and performances with Sting and Trudie Styler. Born in Moscow in May 1987, she began her piano studies at the age of four with Nina Malikova at the Andreyev School of Music in Moscow. In 1995 she emigrated with her family to the United States, and became an American citizen in 2001.
