Fyodor Biryuchev strives to uncover the beauty and the inexplicable mystery of the world and shares them with people in his work. The young composer and pianist, who grew up on the Black Sea Coast, is now standing at the forefront of Russian neoclassical music.
Fyodor as a classical pianist, the graduate of Moscow State Institute of Culture and laureate of a number of international competitions and festivals, enjoys pushing boundaries with both his studio work and his live shows. It's impressive how he can create a performance with a prepared piano and experimental electronics at a concert in Rostov-on-Don and then go on to play a concert with the symphony orchestra in Saint Petersburg further moving on to Russian hinterland to play the piano pieces of forgotten Russian composers of the Silver Age. Next evening Fyodor already plays a concert in Bangkok.
While featuring academic sophistication and precision and a deep immersion of the listeners, Fyodor's concerts are at the same time full of vivid expressive presentation, powerful energy and charming atmosphere. His creative style is marked by diversity, imaginative and cinematic nature. His work is mostly influenced by Sergei Rachmaninoff, Frederic Chopin, Philip Glass, Yann Tiersen, and Ludovico Einaudi.
Fyodor's music resonates with the listener, it is something personal, devoid of the excessive conservatism and artificial pathos. The composer's music is inspiring, it astounds with its sincerity and tenderness. It sounds like a sea breeze, long-awaited spring, a sky full of stars up in the mountains.
In the course of several extended live tours with intimate concerts across Russia, Europe and Asia Fyodor Biryuchev had presented his two albums: «Breath of Love» (2016) and «By the Sea» (2017). Fyodor took on the role of the sound producer of the world's first classical opera in the immersive format – «The Queen of Spades» - working in cooperation with New Classic Band Orchestra (conductor Andrew Rein) and singers from the Bolshoi Theatre (Moscow). This project received a Russian National Award, «Onegin». In 2018 he worked with Severnaya Simfonietta Orchestra under the direction of an Italian conductor Fabio Mastrangelo. In 2019 he took part in Piano Day Festival and played the concerts in Paris and Amsterdam. In 2020 in collaboration with Russian poet Eugeny Soya he released the new album «Let me be frank». The same year he played the concert in India in New Delhi and had the concert tour in Russia. In autumn 2020, Fyodor moved to Barcelona, where he is now continuing his studies in composition.
Fyodor Biryuchev was born in the artists' family in Yevpatoria (the Crimea) on November 22nd, 1993. His grandfather was Vitaly Zaykov, a famous Soviet and Russian sculptor, the Russian SFSR Honored artist; his grandmother and mother are professional musicians. Fyodor has strong Ukrainian and Russian roots: his father was born in the Urals, grandfather is the creator of this region symbol: a grand monument «Skaz ob Urale» in Chelyabinsk. His grandmother is from Lvov region with its unique and rich culture. Fyodor's mother lived in Lvov for many years and graduated from the Lvov conservatory.
Fyodor made his first steps in music in his early childhood, thanks to the support of his family. When he was 4 years old he showed conscious interest for piano performance. While studying in the music school, Fyodor started taking part in various international, Ukrainian and Russian competitions and festivals as a pianist and composer. He was repeatedly awarded the first prizes and Grand-Prix in several nominations. In 2010 driven by the desire to expand his outlook, he entered V.I. Vernadsky Tavrida National University to study Landscape architecture. In 2012 after participating in Rachmaninoff piano competition in Simferopol Fyodor Biryuchev received an invitation to enter the first course of the conservatory, although he never studied in a music college. In 2013 he started studying at the «piano» department in Donetsk conservatory. After graduating from the Tavrida National University in 2014, he completed his piano studies at the Moscow State University of Сulture. In 2014 Fyodor Biryuchev worked with Nikolai Antonenko, conductor of the Crimean philharmonic chamber orchestra, Honored artist of Ukraine. In 2015 Fyodor collaborated with Timofey Vinkovsky, Maestro of crystal symphonies, a finalist in shows «Minute of Fame» and «Ukraine got talent – 3».
In 2016 composer released his debut album «Breath of Love». In 2017 he released his second album «By the Sea» and presented it in Russia, Europe and Asia. In the same year, he has taken the role of the sound producer of first classical opera in the immersive format "The Queen of Spades" in Moscow, he cooperates with New Classic Band Orchestra and singers from Bolshoi Theater. This project received a Russian National Award, «Onegin».
