First appeared on the concert platform at the early age of eleven, performing Mozart´s Concerto in D minor, KV 466 with the Lvov Philharmonic Orchestra. She graduated with gold medal honours from the Lvov State Conservatory in 1983. At her school-leaving concert she played the Brahms B flat major Concerto, Op. 83, No. 2. She then pursued her training at the Academy of Music in Prague, where she completed a graduate course in 1990. Since 1991 she has been a regular member of the Academy´s teaching faculty, being the only woman to head a piano class.

Her talent was rewarded by prizes from numerous international competitions. As a fifteen-year-old she won a national competition in Ukraine (1976). The definitive breakthrough on the concert platform, however, came only after her international competition triumphs: she is laureate of major contests in Cologne, Barcelona, Cincinnati, Zaragoza, and Marsala.

As a soloist, she has appeared most frequently in Germany (Bodensee and Kisinger Sommer Festivals), Spain, Italy, U.S.A. and Japan. She has worked with the Prague Symphony Orchestra, the Slovak, Brno and Northern Bohemia Philharmonic Orchestras, the National Orchestra of Castile, and other ensembles.

Kvita Bilynska´s repertoire comprises all of the key works of piano literature, with particular emphasis on Russian (Soviet) music.

She is a founding member of the Kubelík Trio (1992). As a chamber music player, she has appeared in concert with an impressive array of prominent artists, including Yo-Yo Ma, Pamela Franck, Josef Suk, Yuri Gandelsman and others.
In 2001 she was a member of the Carl Czerny International Competition in Prague.
