Ukrainian-Australian pianist, Evgeny Ukhanov commenced piano studies at the age of 7. Following early competition success, including the Horowitz piano competition in the Ukraine, and public performances in Europe, in 1997 he came to Australia at the age of fifteen on a piano scholarship. In 2000 he was the youngest finalist in the Sydney International Piano Competition and won 3rd prize. Since then he has continued to build his career both in Australia and overseas.
Ukhanov has performed with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and has extensive experience as a collaborative artist in chamber music and vocal accompaniment. He has collaborated with established musicians in Australia and internationally and has performed regularly at the Sydney Opera House, the City Recital Hall, the Melbourne Recital Centre and other capital cities and regional venues. His international appearances include concerts in Russia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, Norway, the Ukraine and Romania.
