Dmitri Alexeev

Piano

Biography

“In lyrical and poetic passages the smoothness of his playing, coupled with its fluidity and delicacy, was breathtaking … Alexeev’s sense of colour, of light and shade, and his extraordinary command over the dynamic range, were beguiling. He really does have the lot.” The Glasgow Herald

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 such orchestras 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. He has worked with conductors such as Ashkenazy, Boulez, Bychkov, Dorati, Gergiev, Giulini, Jansons, Muti, Pappano, Rozhdestvensky, Salonen, Temirkanov, Tilson Thomas and the late Klaus Tennstedt to name just a few.
