  • Description

    Among the important composers of the 20th century who made the step from Romanticism to Classical Modernism, George Enescu (1881-1955) is the one whose work is least present in the cultural memory nowadays. This is in strange contrast to the esteem in which the Romanian composer was once held.

    Described as a "leading lady" by the international piano press on her 1st place victory at the world-renowned George Enescu Piano Competition in 2018, Daria Parkhomenko has performed at some of the world's most renowned concert halls and has appeared with several of the world's leading conductors and orchestras.

    Daria has been a prize winner in over 15 national and international piano competitions. Daria's engagements have taken her to the stages of several notable venues such as Elbphilharmonie, Mariinsky Concert Hall & Hamburger Laeiszhalle. Daria has performed with several eminent conductors and orchestras. She has enjoyed partnerships with conductors such as Junichi Hirokami, Vassily Sinajsky & Julien Salemkour.

    Her performances have been broadcasted on several major classical stations such as, the Norddeutscher Rundfunk, Deutschlandradio Kultur, TVR (Romania), LRT Klasika and Delfi (Lithuania), 2RStudio (Italy).

    "This is her debut recording. It is a most auspicious beginning. She has the technique to manage these often very difficult pieces, requiring at times considerable delicacy in touch […] Recommended with enthusiasm." – MusicWeb International

    Critical Acclaim for Daria Parkhomenko:

    "The competition's latest installment was won by a gifted young Russian woman, who wowed the jury with her interpretation. The moment [Daria] started playing, [Maestro] Sinaisky smiled and the Enescu Philharmonic began to accompany her with genuine enthusiasm, knowing instantly that there was a rewarding partnership to be built – not a note placed without reason, not a phrase unshaped." - International Piano
