Eduard Volchek captures the audience with his unique talent from the second he starts to play the piano and takes you on a journey through a whole spectrum of emotions. Eduard's journey towards discovering music started when he was six years old living in the Ukrainian city of Chernovtsy.
The extraordinary gift shined through and his mentors convinced Eduard to move to Moscow at the age of 14 to continue his studies at the elite, internationally acclaimed Gnessin Music Academy. Soon after graduation, Eduard's family decided to immigrate to Melbourne, Australia.
It was a time of challenges, hopes and opportunities in the new country. Eduard searched for self-realisation and continued music studies at the Victorian College of the Arts. Eduard was honoured to receive a major corporate sponsorship from Mazda Australia, this provided him with an opportunity to return to Moscow to complete summer school at the Moscow State Conservatory. Following the completion of his studies in Moscow, Eduard travelled to New York to enhance his musical experience at The Julliard School.
On return to Australia Eduard released his first music album “Expressions”, dedicated to his grandfather's memory. A number of tracks on this album were recorded with the Victorian Philharmonic Orchestra. Following the release of “Expressions” Eduard performed a number of concerts both around Australia and New Zealand. Eduard presented his second album, “The Beginnings”, in 2002 at his gala concert at the Melbourne Crown Casino. In 2008 the 3rd album “Salut” has been released and instantly gained popularity among Eduard’s audience all around the world.
Eduard continues to compose and perform incredible music for his listeners and followers.
