VENKATESH JOINS ROSTER OF COLBURN ARTISTS

Mr. Venkatesh has joined the prestigious roster of Colburn Artists with US artist representation

"Venkatesh exudes a musical confidence, as his reading of the concerto was far more languid, more lyrical and more nuanced than the standard performance. His sense of color, of dynamics and of phrasing all revealed lyricism in areas that many play as barren passagework. With both an endearing stage presence (could we be thinking Van Cliburn here?) and a personal voice, Venkatesh seems destined to make a musical impact on bigger stages.”
