Born in Odessa in 1945, Eugène Moguilevsky took his first piano lessons with his mother. He then became a pupil of H. Neuhaus (teacher of Gilels and Richter) at the Moscow Conservatory. Winning First Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 1964 enabled him to perform with conductors such as André Clytens, Charles Munch and Bernard Haitink. He gave solo concerts around the world and, in 1973, received the prize for Best Performer of the Year in the USA for his performance of Rachmaninov’s Concerto No. 3 with K. Kondrachin and the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra.
Since then, he has given concerts in Melbourne, Singapore, New York (Carnegie Hall), Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago, as well as in Germany, Switzerland and Spain. Since 1992, Eugène Moguilevsky has been a teacher at the Brussels Royal Conservatory. Many of his performances are available on CD.
