Sofya Gulyak

Russian pianist Sofya Gulyak, at only 36 years of age, has been a mainstay on the world's stage for a decade. Top prize winner of the 2009 Leeds International Piano Competition - whose past winners include Jon Kimura Parker and Murray Perahia - she has performed at Salle Pleyel in Paris, the Moscow Conservatory and the Kennedy Center in Washington among many others. Hailed “a formidable artist” (The Guardian), this talented virtuoso has performed with many of the world’s greatest orchestras, including the London and Saint-Petersburg Philharmonic. A returning artist to the MPRS, Ms. Gulyak will present an A-list all-Russian program featuring Pletnev’s dazzling Nutcracker (Tchaikovsky) transcription. Visit Sofya's Website
