Der Werdegang in der Biografie des Pianisten Nuron Mukumi

Last fall, Nuron Mukumi toured Germany with the Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra and made his debut at the Cologne Philharmonie with Ludwig van Beethoven’s 5th Piano Concerto ‘Emperor Concerto’.

Nuron already went on a successful 4-country tour with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine in the fall of 2022. In the upcoming 2024/25 season, Nuron will go on tour with this orchestra again and perform Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto.

In 2022 Nuron released his second album “Tchaikovsky – 18 Pieces for Piano” on Prospero Classical, which he recorded at Teldex Studio with sound engineer Martin Sauer. The album was nominated for the Preis der deutschen Schallplatten Kritik 1/2023 and for the Opus Klassik 2023 in two categories – “Young Artist of the Year” & “Instrument Solo”.

The German-Uzbek pianist Nuron Mukumi was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in 1996. At the age of six, he began piano lessons in the class of Prof. Tamara Popovich in Tashkent. One year later, he began training as a conductor with Prof. Neymer.

Nuron’s “departure” from Uzbekistan to Europe was made possible by the video of a concert in which, as an 8-year-old boy, he conducted the National Symphony Orchestra of Uzbekistan in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D minor and played the piano part at the same time. As a result of the video, Nuron was offered a scholarship to the Purcell School of Music in London, which he accepted at the age of eleven.

Three years later, Nuron was invited to the University of Music and Performing Arts in Frankfurt am Main as a junior student to study with Prof. Lev Natochenny and ultimately stayed with him for twelve years. He completed his school education in Bad Homburg in 2014. He completed his Bachelor of Music with Prof. Natochenny at the Kalaidos University of Music in Zurich. In spring 2021 he received the Diplôme Supérieur de Concertiste at the École Normale de Musique de Paris with Marian Rybicki. From 2017 to 2022 he was a scholarship holder of the Bad Homburg Castle Concerts Foundation. Since 2022, he has been studying with Prof. Hubert Rutkowski at the Hamburg University of Music and Drama, where he will take his concert exam.

Nuron Mukumi has performed in the following concert venues in recent years: Alte Oper in Frankfurt, Salle Cortot in Paris, Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, Konzerthaus Bozen, Konzerthaus Berlin. He has also played at numerous international festivals such as the Biarritz Piano Festival, the Oxford Piano Festival, the Mozartfest in Würzburg, the Ruhr Piano Festival, the Mosel Music Festival and the Rheingau Music Festival.

The young pianist has already attended master classes with Vladimir Ashkenazy, Dimitri Bashkirov, Yefim Bronfman, Kemal Gekic, Gary Graffman, Yoheved Kaplinsky, Stephen Kovacevich, Menahem Pressler, Ferenc Rados and Sir András Schiff.
