    Grand prize winner of the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition, young Russian pianist Dmitry Masleev makes his New York recital debut on Monday, January 30 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. For his first performance in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Mr. Masleev performs a demanding program of works by Scarlatti, Beethoven, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, and Prokofiev.

    Since taking the top prize at the prestigious competition, Mr. Masleev has appeared in concert in major halls across Europe and around the world. Notable performances include debuts at the Klavierfestival Ruhr, the Philharmonie am Gasteig in Munich, la Roque d'Anthéron and Bergamo & Brescia piano festivals, two tours of Japan with Valery Gergiev and Yuri Bashmet, his French debut with Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, and the opening gala of the Istanbul Festival. This Carnegie Hall performance is part of Mr. Masleev’s inaugural tour of North America.

    “Music is something that is bigger and more profound than ourselves,” Mr. Masleev said about his Carnegie Hall program. “It’s a shortcut from one heart to another, and it brings out the best in us humans. To play the piano for any audience anywhere is an honor and a joy. To play on this legendary stage is also a great responsibility and an inspiration to continue dedicating myself to the timeless power of music. With this program I would like to take people on a journey through different styles, periods and emotions, and to offer them a few memorable moments.”

    About the Artist
    The triumphant winner of the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition, 28-year old pianist Dmitry Masleev took the competition’s First Prize and the international spotlight with wholehearted support from the audience, the jury, and the media. Since then, the success of his first touring season has firmly established his profile as a “future great pianist” (La Croix) of “virtuoso brilliance” (The Financial Times) and “musicality of metaphysical proportions” (Neue Musikzeitung).

    Mr. Masleev’s Munich debut at the Philharmonie am Gasteig has already led to two re-engagements there: one with Prokofiev piano sonatas, streamed by medici.tv, the second with Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto with the Munich Symphony Orchestra. The appearance at the Klavierfestival Ruhr was followed by recital invitations from the Rheingau, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Bad Kissingen festivals. 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, La Roque d’Anthéron and Beauvais piano festivals, and with Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse have paved the way for a solo recital at Fondation Louis Vuitton and an Asian tour 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 SWR Orchestra Stuttgart.

    “A discovery and a brilliant pianist” is how pianist Boris Berezovsky describes Dmitry Masleev. The two will give duo recitals in Moscow later this season, playing 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 Music Academy at Lake Como in Italy.
