Russian-American classical guitarist Piotr Pakhomkin makes his Hylton Center debut in this new Matinee Idylls program. A Washington, D.C. resident, Pakhomkim was the only guitarist to be featured at Strathmore, the Kennedy Center, and the Phillips Collection series in the span of a single concert season in 2014. Throughout his career, he has earned many accolades, including the first prize from the 2012 Mexican International Guitar Competition in Culiacan, top prizes from the Boston GuitarFest International Guitar Competition, the Great Lakes Guitar Competition, the Montreal International Guitar Competition, and the European International Guitar Competition “Enrico Mercatali” in Italy. He also has extensively performed and given masterclasses throughout Europe and Central and Northern America. Pakhomkin earned a master’s degree from The John Hopkins University Peabody Institute and studied directly under Cuban classical guitarist Manuel Barrueco for six years. Classical Guitar Magazine calls him “one of the bright lights of the younger generation of classical musicians, a player of tremendous skill and sensitivity.”
