About Mykola Suk

Suk gained international recognition as the winner of the First Prize and Gold Medal at the 1971 International Liszt-Bartok Competition in Budapest, Hungary. His international career has spanned four continents, with performances in the most prestigious venues from the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory to Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York City. The Toronto Star comments on his "…enormous digital control…such an impressive technique was so completely subsumed in the task of musical characterization. Suk never used the piano to show off; he made it the servant of Liszt’s expressive ideas."

American Record Guide describes Ukrainian-American pianist Suk as, “An astonishing blend of muscular power, poetry and utter control - he will prove to be one of the more formidable talents to have appeared in this country in years.”
