Artist’s website
“This great poet of the piano warmed his brilliantly articulated playing with a ripe, ringing core to each note.”-The Times

A sovereign pianist and artist at the peak of his depth and maturity, Dimitri Alexeev studied with Dimitry Bashkirov, who was himself one of the most outstanding students of the legendary Heinrich Neuhaus. You will therefore be hearing a representative of one of Russia’s greatest piano schools.

Alexeev also serves on the jury of some of the most prestigious competitions today – the Chopin (Warsaw), the Leeds, the Van Cliburn, and the Tchaikovsky (Moscow), among others.

The artist regularly performs at prestigious musical venues as well as with orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Royal Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, and all five major London orchestras, to name just a few.

A prolific recording artist on many labels, his performances on disc have been described by BBC Music Magazine as, “aristocratic, grand, and confessionally poetic.” His recording of the Rachmaninoff Preludes won the sought-after Edison Award in the Netherlands.

Do not miss an opportunity to hear this master musician in recital.

“This great poet of the piano warmed his brilliantly articulated playing with a ripe, ringing core to each note.”-The Times

“Immaculate phrasing is an integral part of these finely wrought performances, but for me Alexeev’s handling of Chopin’s intricate voice-leading and idiosyncratic harmonies is most impressive … Alexeev’s set will confidently take its place among the best … It may in fact become your favourite of all, as it has mine.” [Chopin Complete Mazurkas, CD]” – Patrick Rucker, Gramophone Magazine

Delectable Daniel’s Chocolates will be served after the concert
