Behzod Abduraimov

Behzod Abduraimov

Introduced to Lied audiences in 2018 as a last-minute soloist with Russia’s Mariinsky Orchestra, Behzod Abduraimov has quickly established himself as a rising classical music star. Described as displaying “prodigious technique and rhapsodic flair” by The New York Times, Abduraimov returns to Nebraska after a virtuosic 2021 Lied Center performance praised by the Lincoln Journal Star as “perfectly nuanced ... brilliant, dynamic.” "… the most perfectly accomplished pianist of his generation.” - The Independent
