Stanislav Khristenko's performances have captivated audiences on four continents since his first solo recital at the age of eleven. A 'poet', 'an architect of great forms' (LeSoir), he has been praised in the media around the globe. The Washington Post wrote “it was clear that Khristenko knows how to spin a story; his pacing was mature and unhurried, the dynamic range wide, and his fingers exhibited power and sensitivity." Of his Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall solo recital The New York Concert Review wrote "[he] has the poise and intellect of a seasoned performer.”

In the 2014/15 concert season Stanislav Khristenko appeared as a recitalist and soloist with orchestras throughout the U.S., as well as Korea, Spain, Belgium, and Bulgaria. He has also appeared at the Ravinia Festival, New Orleans Keyboard Festival, and International Keyboard Institute and Festival in New York City.
