We have invited international renowned pianists to give recitals in Great Pianist Series. This concert is given by Russian Pianist, Ksenia Nosikova, who has performed extensively as a solo pianist and chamber musician in Europe, Russia, United States, and South America. She is called a pianist of "impressive musicianship" and "refined sensibility and exquisite pianism, fascinating to watch and hear" by the Boston Globe and New York Concert Reviews. The press praises her performances as "…musically very poetic ...full of light, warmth, and joy�quot;
Ksenia is a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory, where she received her Undergraduate and Masters' degrees. She earned her Doctoral degree from the University of Colorado. Presently, she is an Associate Professor of Piano at the University of Iowa. Among her recordings are the complete ‘Years of Pilgrimage�by Franz Liszt, the ‘Italie�volume was chosen as one of six recommendable recordings by International Piano magazine (London).
