Top young classical musicians you need to listen to in 2021

It is very hard to make a comprehensive list of the world’s best young pianists because there are so many wonderful piano players. However, if a list were to be created by Piano Duo Festival Amsterdam, Egor Oparin (left), Fedor Orlov (middle), and Artemy Sokolovsky (right) from Moscow would definitely make the cut!

Exceptionally talented young musicians

"It was clear from the first few notes that each of them will embark on a wonderful international music career, both as soloists and as duo players"

Steadfastly committed to giving the stage to exceptionally talented young musicians from around the world, Piano Duo Festival Amsterdam has decided to invite these pianists for performance this year.
