About the Performers:
A first-prize winner at the International Beethoven Competition in the Czech Republic and a winner of the New York Cello Society Rising Star Award, Dmitry Kouzov has appeared as soloist with many orchestras including the State Academic Symphony of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, South Bohemian Chamber Philharmonic, the National Symphony of Ukraine, and the Johannesburg Philharmonic. He has recorded cello concertos by Shostakovich, George Walker, and Sean Hickey with the Sinfonia Varsovia and the St. Petersburg Symphony orchestras.
Kouzov has been a guest artist at the Verbier Festival, International Bach Festival (Switzerland), Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival (Germany), May of Janáček International Festival (Czech Republic), and the Kiev Summer Music Nights International Festival (Ukraine), among others, and he has appeared at the Caramoor and Ravinia festivals' Rising Stars concert series. For the past eight years, Kouzov has served as artist-faculty at the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival.
Kouzov’s most recent recordings include music for violin and cello by Eisler, Widmann, and Ravel, and an album of French cello sonatas on Delos in collaboration with his longtime chamber partners and friends, violinist Ilya Gringolts and pianist Peter Laul.
Among Kouzov’s numerous accolades, he was praised for his “astounding virtuoso skills" (Gramophone) and “bold and hugely committed performances” (The Strad).
Known for her passionate and musical interpretations and impressive technical facility, the Russian pianist Yulia Fedoseeva enjoys a varied career as a soloist, chamber musician, and teacher.
To date, she has given hundreds of performances throughout Russia, Holland, Portugal, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and in the United States and has appeared at international festivals such as “Chamber Music connects the World” (Kronberg, Germany), Zenith Chamber Music Festival (Hague, Holland), “Sound Ways” (St. Petersburg, Russia)
In 2009 Yulia’s performances were seen and heard in Phil Grabsky’s documentary “In Search of Beethoven,” which received its premiere at the Barbican Theatre, London, and was broadcast internationally on TV stations and shown in movie theaters worldwide.
In addition to her performing career, Yulia is a devoted teacher and, prior to her current appointment at Oberlin, has been on faculty at the St. Petersburg State Conservatoire and at the Rimsky Korsakov Music Lyceum for Highly Gifted Children.
