equally for his “verve, wit, and délicatesse” (Boston Musical
Intelligencer) and his “infinite tenderness” (Evening Odessa), Artem Belogurov
has an extensive repertoire, ranging through three centuries of solo
and chamber works. He has a particular affinity for the Viennese
classical style, in which he is distinguished by his use of
improvisatory ornamentation. His interest in period performance leads
him to historical keyboards, including clavichord, harpsichord, and
fortepianos spanning the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. His
critically acclaimed album of solo piano works by the late nineteenth
century American Romantic composers, recorded on a Chickering piano
built in 1873, was released by the London-based label Piano Classics in
2015. He is also a discerning advocate of contemporary music, and
collaborates with a number of composers. In 2009 he had the honor of
performing the Boston premiere of Elliott Carter’s Caténaires for solo piano.
