Before earning his doctorate in musicology at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Kirill Monorosi undertook studies at the Moscow Conservatorium and at the Franz Liszt Hochschule für Musik in Weimar, Germany, where he received a Diplom and Aufbau A degrees in piano performance.
Dr Monorosi has performed as a soloist with orchestras in Europe, Australia, Latin America and Russia. His repertoire ranges from the English virginalists to works produced in collaboration with contemporary composers. In 2009, he performed a solo recital on Liszt’s piano in the Liszt Museum in Weimar. In 2012, in a series of lecture recitals, he performed the world premiere of César Cui’s Variations-Preludes Op 104. For the IPCJSB label, he recorded a highly successful interpretation of JS Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, book 1 (2016). Together with Inge Rosar and the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, he performed Bach’s double concertos at the State Hermitage Museum as part of the XVII Conservatory Week Festival.
As well as performing, recording, lecturing and giving masterclasses in Australia, Asia, Europe, Latin America and Russia, Dr Monorosi lectures at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. After discovering many previously unpublished and uncatalogued works by César Cui, he edited those works for publication. His other publications include arrangements of works by JS Bach, Mozart and JC Bach.
Dr Monorosi has adjudicated for many eisteddfods and competitions, including the Sydney and St George eisteddfods, the International Piano Competition JS Bach in Würzburg, Germany (of which he has been co-artistic director since 2017), and the Australia Chinese Arts Study & Exchange Association Piano Competition.
