ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Stanislav Khristenko was born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, and got his early music education there. He gave his first piano solo recital in Kharkiv Philharmonic Hall at the age of 11. Later he graduated from Moscow Tchaikovsky conservatory before moving to the United States in 2008. Most of his family still resides in Kharkiv. In recent years, Stanislav started projects in his hometown by co-founding one of the major classical music festivals in Ukraine, KharkivMusicFest, as well as founding Nova Sinfonietta Chamber Orchestra. In just 4 years of existence, KharkivMusicFest presented performances of the world’s top musicians as well as unique projects including outreach concerts, painted pianos on streets, Festival Orchestra, a classical music forum, Children’s Orchestra, among others. 2020 KharkivMusicFest had to be canceled due to the pandemic and most of its program was presented in the Spring of 2021. This year’s KharkivMusicFest was planned for the end of March. Its large-scale program had to be replaced with one concert in the subway shelter by only five musicians that stayed in the city. This year KharkivMusicFest was featured by Washington Post, ABC News, among others.
