Pianist Daniel Kharitonov

Born in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk in the Russian Far East, Daniel Kharitonov emerged as one of the brightest talents of the 15th Tchaikovsky International Competition when, in 2015 at the age of 16, he won third prize with a triumphant performance. Wherever he appears, Kharitonov charms the audience with powerful and moving performances full of young ferocity and darting energy. 

At this early stage in his career, Kharitonov returns to Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra of Moscow Radio in Autumn 2020 as well as Philharmonisches Orchester Hagen and Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest later this season. He also makes his debuts with Noord Nederlands Orkest and James Judd and Orchestre Lyrique de Region Avignon Provence. Kharitonov returns to Southbank Centre London for his recital debut at International Piano Series in May 2021

Last season, Daniel Kharitonov made his debut with RTÉ Concert Orchestra and Michail Jurowski as well as Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire under Antoni Wit. In his native Russia, he debuts with the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra of Moscow Radio and Vladimir Fedoseyev this season. A frequent visitor to Asia, Kharitonov undertakes a recital tour of Japan and Korea, followed by a new orchestra collaboration with NHK Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Pablo Heras-Casado. The past season also saw Kharitonov making a successful recital debut at Foundation Louis Vuitton in Paris.
