Igor Zhukov

Although he was born in Nizhny-Novgorod, Igor Zhukov’s family moved to Moscow less than a year later. During World War II the family was evacuated to Kirov (previously Vyatka), but by the time they were able to move back to Moscow young Igor was ready to begin his musical education.

He studied first at the Moscow Conservatory’s preparatory school, going to the Conservatory proper in 1955 where he studied first with Emil Gilels and then, a year later, with Heinrich Neuhaus. He had already won second prize at the Long-Thibaud Competition by the time he graduated from the Moscow Conservatory, and in that year Zhukov played for the first time outside of Russia, in Hungary. He has since performed in Europe, Japan and the United States and regularly performed in Germany between 1981 and 1995.

During his career Zhukov has appeared as pianist and harpsichordist, as chamber musician with his trio (with Grigory and Valentin Feighin), as conductor with his Moscow Chamber Orchestra, as vocal accompanist, and as editor and arranger, known for his version of Bach’s Musikalisches Opfer. With his trio he has performed historic concerts (similar to those of his compatriot Anton Rubinstein in the solo repertoire) covering repertoire for piano trio from the seventeenth century to the twentieth century. Although Zhukov gave up conducting in 1994, he now also acts as a recording engineer.
