PIANIST

BIOGRAPHY

Russian pianist Dmitri Alexeev is one of the world's most highly regarded artists. His critically praised recitals on the world's leading concert stages and his concert appearances with the most prestigious orchestras have secured his position as one of "the most remarkable pianists of the day" (Daily Telegraph).

He has performed with orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Royal Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, the five London orchestras, Orchestre de Paris, Israel Philharmonic and the Munich
Bavarian Radio Orchestra amongst others. He has worked with conductors such as Ashkenazy, Boulez, Svetlanov, Dorati, Gergiev, Giulini, Jansons, Muti, Pappano, Rozhdestvensky, Salonen, Temirkanov, Tilson Thomas and Klaus Tennstedt to name
just a few.

During recent seasons he was the Artistic Director of the Leeds International Recital Series, and for the 2013-14 season he was appointed Artistic Director (and Artist in Residence) of a concert series in Arnhem and Nijmegen, in the Netherlands. Alexeev has been a juror for many of the world’s most prestigious International Piano Competitions, including the Leeds, Chopin (Warsaw), Van Cliburn, Santander, Beethoven (Vienna) and Tchaikovsky (Moscow). He gives masterclasses regularly
around the world.

Dmitri Alexeev has made many fine recordings for EMI, BMG, Virgin Classics, Hyperion and Russian labels. His discs include piano concertos by Schumann, Grieg, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Scriabin, Medtner and solo works by Bach,
Brahms, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt, Scriabin, Rachmaninov, Prokofiev. Following his Virgin Classics recording of the complete Rachmaninov Preludes, which won the Edison Award in the Netherlands, BBC Music Magazine said: "He is a pianist at once
aristocratic, grand and confessionally poetic. This is an inspiring disc."

In December 2012, his recording of Scriabin’s complete Piano Sonatas was released on Brilliant Classic. This was followed by a recording of Scriabin’s complete Etudes, released in November 2015. In 2017, Alexeev will continue his Scriabin recording project with a disc of the complete Preludes. His recording of the complete Chopin Mazurkas was released in 2014.
