Oxana Mikhailoff and Vassily Primakov have known each other since their formative years at the Moscow State Conservatory under the tutelage of the legendary Professor Vera Gornostaeva. Audiences on the duo’s tours around the country enjoy hearing them play four hands on one piano as each pianist brings individuality and unique musical texture that perfectly complements the style of the other.
Mikhailoff has performed in acclaimed concert halls in North America and Europe and has won many awards including the Martha Argerich International Piano Competition. Vladimir Feltsman has said “Oxana Mikhailoff is a mature and accomplished musician…her playing has character, imagination, and is poetic.” In addition to her concert performances, Ms. Mikhailoff maintains an active teaching schedule and is a Founder of Homeschool Music Conservatory in Westchester County.
Vassily Primakov is considered a pianist of “world-class” importance. He came to New York at age 17 to pursue his studies at the Juilliard School of Music with the renown pianist Jerome Lowenthal. Primakov has won several international piano competitions including First Prize in the Young Concert Artists International Auditions which presented him with the opportunity to perform throughout the United States. The Classical Recording Foundation presented Primakov with the Young Concert of the Year award in 2007. He became a Yamaha Artist in 2012. Bridge Records has released numerous recordings by Primakov that include works by Bach, Mozart, and Chopin, among other well-known composers.
