A laureate of both national and international piano competitions, Kirill Kozlovski has given solo recitals and been a member of chamber ensembles at international festivals in France, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Estonia, Spain, Finland and Belarus. He has appeared as a soloist with orchestras in Finland and abroad, collaborating with conductors such as Andris Nelsons, Janos Fürst, Dima Slobodeniouk, John Storgårds and Klaus Mäkelä to name but a few.

His recordings include the complete piano music by Yuri Shaporin (Toccata Classics), songs by Richard Wagner with the soprano Jenni Lättilä and the baritone Tommi Hakala (Siba Records), and a solo-piano album, Shostakovich in Context, combining preludes and fugues by Dmitri Shostakovich with Finnish contemporary music (Pilfink Records).
