A former Van Cliburn semifinalist will bring his music back to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex this fall.
Russian pianist Alexey Chernov is slated to play two concerts next month, including a solo recital Sept. 18 at The University of Texas at Arlington. He will also teach a master class for the Department of Music the following day.
Chernov was a semifinalist in the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Fort Worth. Raised in Moscow, he began studying music at age 4 and began winning international piano competition as a teenager. In 2012, he took the top prizes at competitions in Italy and Spain and has more than a dozen first-place awards to his credit.
Chernov is currently a teacher at the Central Music School at the P.I. Tchaikovsky State Conservatory in Moscow where he once studied.
Chernov’s recital – featuring waltzes from different eras – will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 18 in Irons Recital Hall. Tickets are $10 for students, $15 for UT Arlington faculty and staff and $50 for non-UTA guests. Tickets may be purchased through UTATickets.com.
Chernov will also perform at an Arlington Women’s Club event Sept. 13.
