“Super-soloist” is the way France Musique introduced pianist Dmitry Masleev when he made his debut with the Orchestre National de France, playing Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1, the work that helped launch his international career when he won the 2015 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition. In 2021, Masleev made his debuts at the Golden Hall of Musikverein and on the main stage of the Berlin Philharmonic. In recent seasons, he has been invited to perform at the Verbier, Lucerne, Klavierfestival Ruhr, La Roque d’Anthéron, Montreux, Rheingau, Bad Kissingen, Bodensee, and Stars of the White Nights festivals. His orchestral collaborations include the Moscow Philharmonic, Siberian State Symphony, Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Orchestre National de Lyon, Bamberg Orchestra, and Orquestra Cadaqués.
Rising to the challenge of pandemic, Masleev has been actively collaborating with the Moscow Philharmonic Society, offering numerous performances via their digital concert hall, reaching hundreds of thousands of people worldwide at the time of great physical, emotional, and economic difficulties. His recent media activities also include the release of his second album Rapid Movement on Russia’s legendary label Melodia. Masleev has also achieved international success, making his Carnegie Hall recital debut in 2017 and annually performing in South American countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, and Ecuador, as well as with orchestras throughout Asia such as the Seoul Philharmonic, New Japanese Philharmonic, and National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan. Masleev was educated at the Moscow Conservatory and at the International Music Academy at Lake Como.
