    Michael Kaykov was born in St Petersburg, Russia, to a musical family.
    As his mother was employed at the Marijinski Theatre, he spent a great deal of time there.
    Michael gave his first concert performance at the age of six, at the conservatory of his birthplace.
    At seven, he emigrated with his family to the United States, where he enrolled at the Special Music School of America.

    When Michael was eleven, he was a prize-winner at the
    Juilliard School of Music’s Third Annual People’s Piano Competition,
    and in 2006 won the Young Pianists Competition of New Jersey,
    playing Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1.
    Michael has appeared at such renowned New York concert venues as Carnegie Hall,
    Steinway Hall, CAMI Hall and Merkin Concert Hall.
    Since 2006, he has regularly participated in the International Keyboard Institute and Festival,
    participating in the masterclasses of Jerome Rose, Leslie Howard and Jeffrey Swann, amongst others.
    Michael Kaykov studies at the Mannes College of Music, where he is a student of Jerome Rose.

    Hi Michael,

    It's been awhile since I've heard you play, so it was a treat to see your recordings here. Tonight I only had time to hear the Chopin etude and Liszt Rhapsody. I believe both were stylishly played with a most reliable technique underlying your wonderfully expressive artistry. Outstanding! Thanks so much for posting.

    David

    Hello Michael and welcome to Piano Society.

    I am at work and so I don't have time to listen to your recordings. But I can tell from the other comments that your playing is acceptable for our site. Normally, we first listen to a potential new member's recordings and then ask for that person to submit their bio. :wink: Since you have already done that, please submit your photo too and I'll get started on making your personal page. It may take me a couple days, though. Also, in the future, please submit no more than a two or three recordings at a time.

    Another thing...I can't tell because I'm not downloading your files here at work, but I hope you submitted your mp3's with kbps under 192?

    One more thing....please take a little time to comment and get to know our other members here on the forum! :)

    thank you for your response. The files are variable bit-rate, but they don't get above 160.

    but do the files have to be 44.1 khz, because these ones are 48 khz. If so, I will re-upload.

    I also attached a picture below.

    I re-uploaded all of the files, now they are under 192 kbs, and they are 44.1 khz as well.

    Ok, I will get started on making up your page and adding your recordings. I can use your Liszt, Chopin, and Bach files the way they are, but you will have to resubmit your Beethoven. We put up individual movements of sonatas, so you need to separate the Beethoven Sonata into three separate files.

    I'm not to keen on Variable bitrate recordings to be honest. Can't calculate the duration of them which is done for various auto-generated pages and reports. People should really submit CBR recordings only - isn't that somewhere in the rulez ?

    Ok, then Michael please resubmit everything with a constant bit rate and don't forget to separate the Beethoven sonata. Thank you.

    ok, everything is re-submitted with a CBR of 160. The Beethoven Sonata has been split into 2 parts.

    Ok, Michael, your page and most of your recordings are now up on the site. The Beethoven files will be up soon. Welcome again to Piano Society. We encourage members to participate on the forum often by commenting and/or critiquing other members' recordings. Also, in the future, please remember to submit no more than two or three recordings at a time. Any more than that makes me cranky! :)

    I guess we might as well have them all and be done with it for a while.

    Very accomplished playing Michael, as I'm sure you have been told once or twice already.

    also, the Chopin Etude in D major, Op. 25, No. 8 is actually the etude in D-flat major. Sorry about that.
