Bach, Beethoven, Messiaen, Scriabin 

Andrey Korobeinikov is called "one of the most unusual pianists of the XXI century" and "a unique phenomenon in the modern musical community."

At the age of 5, the boy, who lived with his mother in the MIPT hostel in Dolgoprudny, sat down at the piano for the first time, at the age of 7 he had already won the III International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians.

By the age of 20, Andrei Korobeinikov had more than 20 prizes in international competitions, including the 1st prize at the III International Scriabin Piano Competition in Moscow (2004).

Andrei amazed teachers at the Central Music School in Moscow with his incredible abilities. He passed exams as an external student, completed the program twice as fast as usual. At the age of 19, he already became a graduate of the Tchaikovsky State Conservatory, then graduated with honors from the Conservatory and the Royal College of Music in London.

In parallel with his musical education, Andrei Korobeinikov received a higher law degree: in 2003 he graduated with honors from the European University of Law in Moscow, and in 2004-2007 he studied at the graduate school of the law faculty of Lomonosov Moscow State University.

In 2007, Andrei Korobeinikov became a sensation at the XIII International Tchaikovsky Competition. His free, non-standard manner of performance made a huge impression on the audience. And although the jury did not allow the pianist to enter the final (causing a lot of controversy by his decision), Andrei Korobeinikov was awarded a special prize of the Moscow Conservatory and a prize for the best performance of works by P.I. Tchaikovsky.

On May 7, 2014, on Tchaikovsky's birthday, in Klin, Andrei Korobeinikov and the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra conducted by Vladimir Fedoseyev were honored to perform for the first time P.I.Tchaikovsky's First Concerto in the final author's edition, and not in the edition of Ziloti (in which he sounds ubiquitous).

Pyotr Pospelov wrote about the performance of this work by Andrey Korobeinikov in “Vedomosti”: “Tchaikovsky, cleansed of later layers, sounded as if it were impossible to do otherwise - the pianist was so confident, natural and firm within the boundaries of the previously“ unheard ”classical text. One of the culminations of the Concerto in his performance was the solo cadenza, in which the author's heartfelt speech in the first person seemed to be heard ”.

Andrey Korobeinikov has given concerts in more than 50 countries of the world. His partners on the stage were such masters as Yuri Temirkanov, Ivan Fisher, Vladimir Fedoseev, Vladimir Ashkenazi, Mikhail Pletnev, Vadim Repin. He played with the Philharmonia Orchestras (London), Orchestre de Paris (France), the National Orchestra of France, the Orchestra of the Japanese Broadcasting Corporation NHK, the North German Radio Orchestra, the Concerthaus Berlin Orchestra, the London Philharmonic, Sinfonia Varsovia (Poland), SASO im. Svetlanov, BSO them. Tchaikovsky, RNO and others.
