Natacha Kudritskaya

Natacha Kudritskaya studied in Kiev at the Tchaikovsky National Music Academy of Ukraine as a pupil of Irina Barinova and Igor Riabov and then at the Paris Conservatory Important teachers along the way have included Alain Planès, Jacques Rouvier, Ferenc Rados and Henri Barda. The music of Rameau was a major turning point in her life as regards Kudritskaya’s playing technique, and she has made two albums of the composer’s music. In 2009 she was successful in more than one competition and was invited to perform at several important festivals and prominent concert venues, including the Cité de la musique in Paris, the Musikverein Wien, the Wigmore in London, the Gstaad Festival and Kuhmo Chamber Music. She also regularly visits Ukraine. The events of 2014 gave her return home poignant significance and since then she has toured the country giving concerts.
