Pianist Sergey Tanin, who was born in Syberia / Yakutia in 1995, won the 3rd prize as well as the audience award at the Concours Géza Anda 2018 in Zürich. Sergey Tanin has also won prizes at various piano competitions in Russia (St. Petersburg), Finland and Germany (Bremen Piano Competition 2016).
He began playing the piano when he was five years old and already performed at concerts together with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra at the age of eleven in the large hall of the Tchaikovsky Music School. In 2011 he joined the class of Professor Irina Plotnikova at the Central Music School in Moscow and continued his studies at the Tchaikovsky Music School in 2014 until he graduated with distinction in the Summer of 2019. In September 2019 he began his post-graduate studies under Professor Claudio Martinez-Mehner at the Music University in Basel. During his many piano evenings Tanin visited many Russian concert venues such as the Moscow International House of Music, St. Petersburg Philharmonic and also performed abroad (Germany, Kazakhstan, Finland, France and Switzerland). As a soloist he performed together with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zürich under Christian Zacharias, “Musikkollegium Winterthur”, Bremen Philharmonic, the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, the Russian National Young Orchestra, the Yakutian Philharmonic Orchestra and the Prague Royal Philharmonic.
After winning the 3rd prize in Zürich many concerts in Switzerland, Germany, Greece, France and Russia followed. In June 2019 he interpreted Brahms' piano concerto No. 1 together with St. Petersburg Philharmonics in the Mariinsky Concert Hall. Due to the corona pandemic his Mozart piano concert with Charles Dutoit that was planned for March 2020 had to be delayed until Autumn 2021. In Summer 2020 some of his concert destinations include Geneva and the Swiss Alp Classics. The Swiss TV station SRF plans to release a documentary about Sergey Tanin this year which will be broadcast during their “Sternstunden” program.
