Republic of Korea, and most of Europe. During his career he has

"In Egorov’s play we find strong individuality, independent technique,
deep feeling, tremendous energy, rich variety of sounds, confidence,
elegance, will and courage, but the main feature is a rare sensuous
strain. The pianist does nothing special for obtaining the effect; the
music owns him completely…"
