Sergey Tanin is seen as one of the most promising pianists of his generation. He gained his first international recognition at the Géza Anda Competition in Zurich, 2018 (3rd prize and audience award). In October 2020, he won first prize at the renowned Kissinger KlavierOlymp. Now he presents his debut album on Prospero Classical. With works by Johannes Brahms, Schubert-Liszt and Sergey Prokofiev, he can impressively demonstrate both his interpretational depth and his musicality and virtuosity.
Born in 1995 in Siberia/Yakutia, Sergey Tanin started to play the piano at the age of 5. At 11, he already performed with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra in the Great Hall of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow. After his graduation in 2019 from Moscow Conservatory (class of prof.

He is holder of the Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship and in 2020, the Swiss Television (SRF) broadcasted a documentary about Sergey – “The Pianist who came in from the Cold”.
