In 1991, he was invited to the United States as a featured recitalist for the Southwestern Youth Music Festival. While in the US he auditioned and was admitted with top scholarship to University of Southern California to study with Daniel Pollack. Since graduation he has performed with throughout the US and Europe, and is a staff member with the Department of Music at California State University, Fullerton.

His performances have received high critical acclaim by both local and foreign press.

“Korzhev made many friends in the audience…a Ravel Ondine so perfect in style that one wanted to hear the rest of Gaspard de la Nuit right there and then. Accomplished and assured, Korzhev gave a noble and refined reading of the Rachmaninoff First Piano Concerto…subtleties of phrasing, tone and technique…elicited a standing ovation.” –Palos Verdes Peninsula News.

“The Young Russian pianist…displayed a notable technical mastery which allowed for passionate moments of ardent lyricism as well as wonderful purity and fluency… The audience praised his performance with such enthusiastic applause as to encourage him to perform several encores.” –Momento-Sera, Rome.

“Korzhev’s belongs to that exclusive club of super musicians…he already performs like a keyboard legend…he is a major talent.” —Salt Lake Tribune.
