    In 2015 Dmitry Masleev triumphed at the famous International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow – thus succeeding Daniil Trifonov. The jury was thrilled, praising not only his brilliance and flawless technique but his lyrical qualities and the naturalness of his playing as well. This young pianist commands “a musicality almost bordering on the metaphysical,” wrote the Neue Musikzeitung. Born in 1988 in Ulan-Ude, Siberia, Masleev grew up listening to the recordings of Sviatoslav Richter and Emil Gilels. But when it comes to the art of phrasing, he believes he has learned mostly from singers, for example, from Nicolai Gedda. In the meantime, Dmitry Masleev has appeared at the major piano summits, such as the Ruhr Piano Festival and La Roque d’Anthéron; he has played at Carnegie Hall in New York, the Paris Philharmonie, and the Gasteig in Munich; and he has concertized with the Bamberg Symphony, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse. In Lucerne he will introduce himself with three of his favorite composers.
