His latest solo disc on Harmonia Mundi, works by Scriabin, won a prestigious “Diapason d’Or de l’année.” Previous awards include First Prizes at the Schubert Piano Competition, Dortmund (2011) and Sendai Piano Competition (2010).

In North America, Kholodenko has performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic and San Diego Symphony Orchestras. He has toured with the Staatskapelle Weimar under Kirill Karabits. He has also given recitals throughout the United States, including in New York, Washington and Boston, and at the Aspen Music Festival.
