Critics have praised NY-based pianist/composer VADIM NESELOVSKYI for "extraordinary playing" (Los Angeles Times), "exceptional composition skills" (musicweb-international.com) and "feathery touch" (New York Times). While mostly known as one of the key members of multiple GRAMMY® winner Gary Burton's Quintet, and as a featured pianist and composer on Burton's Concord Records release "Next Generation," Vadim is rapidly gaining reputation as a band leader, creating a "thrilling blend of classical and jazz" (jazzreview.com).

Before graduating from Berklee Vadim was asked to play and compose for a Berklee's promotional recording produced by Pat Metheny. Four weeks after graduation he was playing with Gary Burton at the Blue Note in New York. Since June 2004 Vadim has been consistently touring the US, Europe Japan and Korea.

Vadim's work has been recognized with a number of recent awards. In September 2010 he was named a Grand Prize Winner of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Composers Competition. (a scandal was created when the prize was taken away because Gary Burton had recorded the work that was submitted). Vadim performed the winning composition, Grust (Sadness) with his trio at the Kennedy Center on Ocotober 4, 2010 as part of the Gala Concert, also featuring Herbie Hancock, Kurt Elling and Dianne Reeves. President Obama and Mrs. Michelle Obama served as Honorary Chairs of the event.

"Garnering the $10,000 prize for his composition "Grust," which means 'sadness' in Russian, Neselovskyi impressed with both the depth of his composition and a heartrending performance that stood out as an unquestionable highlight of the night." All About Jazz

Just two weeks after the Prize Award Ceremony in Washington DC Vadim received another Award - Second Grand Prix (7.000 Euro) at the 5th Martial Solal International Jazz Piano Competition in Paris, France.

In 2011 Gary Burton recorded another two of Vadim's compositions on his new release "Common Ground", including the opening track "Late Night Sunrise". This CD has been recognized as one of the best releases in 2011 by JAZZTIMES.

Vadim Neselovskyi has been serving as Professor for Jazz Piano at world renown Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA since January 2011.
