Oxana Shevchenko is internationally recognised as a pianist of outstanding artistry, sensibility, and versatility and is equally in demand both as a soloist and as a chamber musician.

In 2016 Oxana was one of the top six finalists at the Sydney International Piano Competition and also won the prize for the best Piano Quintet. She has also won the top prize at the Scottish International Piano Competition, International Premio Franz Liszt Competition and the Chappel Piano Competition.

Born in Kazakhstan, Oxana gave her first performance as a soloist with the Kazakh State Symphony Orchestra at age of nine and made her Western debut in Vilnius with the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Juozas Domarkas in 2004.

Oxana has since performed with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, the Pilsen Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra, the Norrlands Operan Symphony Orchestra, and with conductors Vladimir Ashkenazy, Martyn Brabbins, Jacques Mercier, Pascal Verrot, Koji Kawamoto, Rumon Gamba and Tolepbergen Abdrashev.

A keen chamber musician, Oxana has collaborated with musicians such as the Kopelman Quartet, Brodsky Quartet, Ray Chen, Narek Hakhnazaryan, Alena Baeva, Christoph Croisé and Isabel Villanueva. In 2016, in collaboration with French/German cellist Christoph Croisé, Oxana won the First Prize at the Salieri-Zinetti International Chamber Music Competition in Verona-Mantova. In 2014, together with the Latvian violinist Jana Ozolina, Oxana received the Second Prize at the Sion International Duo Competition. The two artists starred in the movie “The Looser Takes It All” by the famous duo of musicians and comedians Igudesman & Joo.

Masterclasses [Excursion]

Time Tuesday, 19th March 2019
Duration 30 min per student and 30 – 120 minutes for observers as there is the opportunity to stay through multiple masterclass sessions
Cost Free

Two students are offered the opportunity of a 30 minute masterclass at BREC with Oxana Shevchenko, while classmates and others observe.

The higher the standard of pianist the more they will get out of participating, minimum level is AMEB Grade 6 and above. The student, where possible, should be prepared to play from memory and the work performed should be generally ‘classical’ rather than contemporary. Learning opportunities continue by listening to the teaching of the other masterclass students.
