2006 Andrei's highlights:

 

  • large tour in Japan (February-March), organised by a prominent esperantist Kazuko Kikushima and the AK-AK (Amikara Klubo de Andrei Korobeinikov - Andrei Korobeinikov's Friends' Club in Japan). Besides 9 public concerts, there were special recitals at the closed hospitals and schools for children and adult persons with mental deseases. Also the whole tour was non-profit, the income from the concerts was also used to support organizations for blind people in Japan. The recital at the Hamarikyu Asahi Hall in Tokyo was recorded and later the "AK-AK" has released a CD, which is also available for purchase.
  • recording of the Elegy for piano & string orchestra by Alla Pavlova with Vladimir Ziva & Tchaikovsky symphony orchestra of the Moscow radio for Naxos.
  • fantastic opportunity to perform a debut recital at the 26th "La Roque d'Anthéron" piano festival, replacing famous pianist Ivo Pogorelich.
  • graduating from the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatoire with the highest possible distinction for the piano solo recital ("5+"). This happened in June 2006, at Andreis age of 19, so he's achieved the same and rare result as 19-year-old Sergei Rachmaninov in 1892.
  • great opportunity to study as a postgraduate student at the Royal College of Music in London (in the class of Prof. Vanessa Latarche), which was made possible by a scholarship given by Gill and Julian Simmonds, won by Andrei in May 2006. Thanks to studying at the RCM in London, Andrei has won several competitions that gave him possibility to perform recitals and concerti in 2007-2008 in England.
  • performances in RUssia, Italy, Japan, Costa Rica, Portugal, France, Germany and Great Britain.
