About the Musicians
Already an acclaimed artist in his native Belarus, clarinetist Maksim Shtrykov
is quickly gaining renown as an artist of remarkable charisma and
extraordinary musicianship. Hailed for “…clarity that’s viscerally
breathtaking…” and “effortless…quicksilver legato...” Maksim continues
to win over audiences with his profound musical sensibility and
flawless technique. As the recipient of Artist International’s New York
Debut Award, he was presented in his solo debut recital at Weill
Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in April, 2007. Since his orchestral
debut at the age of 14, Maksim Shtrykov appeared regularly with the
Belarusian State Academic Symphony Orchestra and State Chamber
Orchestra of the Republic of Belarus.
He was awarded First Prize of the Belarus National Woodwind Competition and is a prizewinner of the Dymtro Bida International Woodwind Competition in Ukraine. Mr. Shtrykov is also a two-time recipient of the Presidents’ Foundation Award “Young Talents of Belarus.”
Maksim Shtrykov actively performs both as a recitalist and with various chamber music ensembles. As a founding member of the Chamber Trio “Reflection,” he is a winner of Poland’s International Johannes Brahms Chamber Music Competition, where he was awarded First Prize as well as the Special Award for the best performance of a Brahms work. He is also a prizewinner of Italy’s International Gaetano Zinetti Chamber Music Competition. A passionate advocate of clarinet music, Mr. Shtrykov regularly tours throughout the United States with acclaimed piano virtuoso, Misuzu Tanaka, as members of the Shtrykov/Tanaka Concert Duo.
Maksim Shtrykov holds a Master of Music degree from The Juilliard School, where he had been a scholarship student in the studio of Charles Neidich.
We are privileged to welcome Maksim to his first appearance in the Historical Piano Concerts Series here in Ashburnham.
