Winner of the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition, Dmitry Masleev took the international spotlight with wholehearted support from the audience, jury, and media. The success of his first touring season firmly established him as a pianist of "virtuoso brilliance" (Financial Times) and inspired an ever-growing worldwide demand for his artistry.
Mr. Masleev's Munich debut at the Philharmonie led to two additional engagements, including a performance of Prokofiev's piano sonatas streamed live by medici.tv and Beethoven's First Piano Concerto with the Munich Symphony Orchestra. His appearance at the Klavier-Festival Ruhr was followed by recital invitations from the Rheingau Musik Festival, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, and Kissinger Sommer. This season, Mr. Masleev makes his Berlin debut with Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and Robert Trevino.
In France, Mr. Masleev's appearances at the Philharmonie de Paris, Festival International de Piano de La Roque-d'Anthéron, and Festival Pianoscope Beauvais-as well as with Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse-paved the way for a solo recital at the Fondation Louis Vuitton and a tour of Asia with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France under Mikko Franck.
Mr. Masleev's orchestral collaborations also include a German tour with the National Philharmonic of Russia and Vladimir Spivakov, performances with the Bamberg Symphony and Christoph Eschenbach, and an artistic residence with the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra. Later this season, he will give duo recitals with Boris Berezovsky in Moscow that feature the music of Bartók and Liszt.
Born and raised in Ulan-Ude (a Siberian town between Lake Baikal and the Mongolian border), Mr. Masleev was educated at the Moscow Conservatory (in the class of Professor Mikhail Petukhov) and at the International Piano Academy Lake Como. For more information, visit facebook.com/dmitrymasleev.
