“ Konstantin Emelyanov is a quiet superstar: he displays no fancy aggressiveness, yet you cannot stop listening to his music. A bright head, a bright soul, an unusual, ear-pleasing sound.
“...Konstantin Emelyanov is a gem of the 16th International Tchaikovsky Competition.
Indeed he makes a difference with his remarkably clever programme, unconventional choice of works, and harmonious interpretations, where technical stability is no obstacle to unconcealed emotions, temperament is curbed by thought, and the intuitive sense of style maintains a perfect balance between the performer’s vision and the author’s will in every piece.
