The repertoire of the Ukrainian pianist and conductor, who has lived in Switzerland (Basel) since 2005, ranges from contemporary music to the baroque. Kirill Zvegintsov likes to perform unconventional programmes and little-known works. Despite his pronounced interest in contemporary music, Zvegintsov has his roots in classical music: his  repertoire includes such works as Bach’s “Well-tempered clavier”, Messiaen’s “Vingt Regards sur l`Enfant-Jésus” and Beethoven’s “Diabelli-Variations”.

He has made several audio recordings, among them a live-performance CD of 24 Preludes and Fugues by Dmitri Shostakovich produced under the Müller und Schade label. Another album, “Eaux-Fortes”, featuring compositions by Couperin, Debussy, George Hugon and Jacques Lenot under the FY-Solstice label (2019), received enthusiastic critical acclaim. His newest CD with solo works by Holliger, Beethoven and Wyttenbach is soon to appear under Prospero label.

Kirill Zvegintsov is co-founder of the concert series Konzerte am Ausserberg in Riehen BS.
