    Stanislav Khristenko won a bronze medal in the 2010 New Orleans International Piano Competition - and he's returning to the site of his triumph.

    Stanislav Khristenko won a bronze medal in the 2010 New Orleans International Piano Competition – and he's returning to the site of his triumph. On July 24, the young Russian will perform at Loyola University's Roussel Hall as a headliner at the New Orleans Piano Institute & Keyboard Festival Presented by the Musical Arts Society of New Orleans.

    (Peter Mack, a well-regarded Irish pianist, will perform July 25).

    While Khristenko fell short of the gold in New Orleans, he went on to win two of the world's biggest competitions. In 2013 he won first prize at the Cleveland International Piano Competition and the Maria Canals International Music Competition.

    Here's what the Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote about Khristenko when he played the Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 to win $50,000 and a gold medal in 2013: "Time, in his reading, almost stood still, and he filled the void with shimmering filigree and phrases of exquisite tenderness, in which every note mattered. Yet Khristenko wasn't stuck in slow motion. His virtuoso performance of the final Rondo was fully invigorating. From start to finish, the pianist had listeners on the edge of their seats."

    Khristenko's career has taken off since that Cleveland win. He has appeared as a soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra of Belgium, the Cleveland Orchestra, Phoenix Symphony, Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra, and the Berliner Musikfreunde Orchestra, among others. His performance highlights include solo recitals in Weill and Zankel Halls at Carnegie Hall, Schubertsaal in Vienna, and the Phillips Collection in Washington.

    For his Loyola recital, Khristenko will focus exclusively on American music, including works by Philip Glass, George Gershwin, Samuel Barber and the glorious 19th century New Orleans composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk.

    Khristenko will perform on Friday, July 24, 7:30 p.m.

    Peter Mack will perform on Saturday, July 25, 7:30 p.m.

    Both recitals will take place in Roussel Hall. Tickets for each of the solo recitals will be $20 ($15 for students and seniors). A package ticket for both solo recitals will be available for $35/$25. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the MASNO Office at 504.899.4826 or
