The pianist performed with the State Symphony Capella of Russia, under conduct of Valeri Polyansky. The concert program was dedicated to Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Concerto  No. 4  and  Symphony  No. 9  were  performed.  As  a  member  of   the   jury   of   the   XV International Tchaikovsky Competition, Vladimir Ovchinnikov noted: “The performing level of this Competition is incredibly high, very interesting people played there. Of course, the nerves were on the stretch, because performing on such a stage as the Great Hall of the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory is a big event in the biography of every musician and a big responsibility”.
