Vadym Kholodenko won the Gold Medal at the 13th International Van Cliburn Piano Competition. On this week’s On the Keys, host David Kiser interviews Vadym. He then plays Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto with the Greenville Symphony Orchestra led by Edvard Tchivzhel. In between, he plays a Polka by Rachmaninoff that enamored audiences last year in Greenville, in an impromptu performance at an after-party.  Though he has won one of the most well-known piano competitions, Vadym shares his distaste for competitions in the interview.
