Born in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk in the Russian Far East on December 22, 1998, Daniel Kharitonov emerged as one of the brightest talents of the 15th Tchaikovsky International Competition in 2015 at the age of 16, when his triumphant performance brought him the Third Prize.
Since his successful debut with The Mariinsky Orchestra under Valery Gergiev in 2013, Kharitonov became a regular with the orchestra and has already toured with them to China and Italy, and performed across Russia on the Moscow Easter Festival tours in 2014 and 2015. Other highlights in his native Russia include concerts with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra "Evgeny Svetlanov" and National Philharmonic of Russia, and recitals in halls such as the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall, Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory and Moscow International Performing Arts Center. He has participated at festivals such as Stars of the White Nights, Stars on Baikal and Crescendo, and regularly works with the Spivakov International Charity Foundation in Moscow.
Elsewhere, Kharitonov gave an electrifying performance at Carnegie Hall in 2013 as part of the Musical Olympus International Festival's gala concert and has also appeared at the Annecy Classic and International de Colmar festivals in France.
In early 2016 Kharitonov debuted with the China Philharmonic Orchestra, Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra and Orquestra Sinfônica Municipal de São Paulo to great critical acclaim and returned to Japan with the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra under Pavel Kogan. Later this season Kharitonov will appear in recital at the Duszniki International Chopin Piano Festival, Schubertíada a Vilabertran and as part of the Scherzo Jóvenes Intérpretes series. Upcoming concert performances include his much anticipated debut with the London Chamber Orchestra under Vladimir Ashkenazy and a tour of China with the National Philharmonic of Russia under Vladimir Spivakov.
