Bouchaine Young Artist Concert: Alexander Malofeev at Jarvis Conservatory

Doors open at 10:30 am

Pianist Alexander Malofeev was just 13 when he won the Gold Medal at the International Tchaikovsky Youth Competition in 2014. Dubbed “the latest phenomenon of the Russian piano school” (Corriere della Sera), Malofeev has since performed with the Russian National Orchestra and other leading orchestras and toured around the globe. The piano wunderkind makes his Festival Napa Valley debut in this admission-free concert at Jarvis Conservatory.

“The latest phenomenon of the Russian piano school” (Corriere della Sera), “Alexander Malofeev manifests the piano mastery of the new millennium in itself” (Il Giornale). Now aged seventeen, the young “Russian genius” (Corriere della Sera) came to international prominence when, in 2014, he won the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians at age thirteen. “Contrary to what could be expected of a youngster ..., he demonstrated not only high technical accuracy but also an incredible maturity. Crystal clear sounds and perfect balance revealed his exceptional ability” (Amadeus).



Jarvis Conservatory

Utilizing a grant from the Jarvis family, the Conservatory began operation in downtown Napa in 1995, providing training and support for artists. The 220-seat Conservatory, described as a jewel of a theater and an acoustic marvel, is dedicated to serious art forms not often available in other places, and at the same time, art forms relating to the large Hispanic community of Napa.
