Natasha Paremski

Natasha Paremski started taking piano lessons at the age of 4. Having moved from her native Russia to the United States in 1995, she made her professional debut with the El Camino Youth Symphony in California. She was 9. Since then, she has played with prestigious orchestras around the world while she was named the Classical Recording Foundation’s Young Artist of the Year in 2010. After a few awkward moments adjusting the piano stool (Jonathan Batiste, who played earlier, is rather taller than the diminutive Russian), she’s currently onstage at TEDGlobal, demonstrating the “global wingspan” of Rachmaninoff with a beautiful rendition of Prelude in B-flat Major.
