Melodiya releases a new album of Dmitry Masleev, the winner of the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition. The program includes concertos by Shostakovich, Tsfasman and Kapustin. “An unconditional discovery, a brilliant pianist!” - Boris Berezovsky praised his young colleague. Born in Ulan-Ude, Dmitry Masleev graduated from the Moscow Conservatory and the International Piano Academy Lake Como in Italy. He became widely known after his triumphant victory at the 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. The tour that followed the competition brought the pianist worldwide recognition. In 2017, the pianist made a successful debut at Carnegie Hall. If Dmitry Masleev’s first album that went in the charts of Spotify Top Classical of 2017 and received the prestigious German Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik included solo works by Scarlatti, Prokofiev and Shostakovich, this time the pianist performs with the Krasnoyarsk Philharmonic Society’s highly professional orchestra conducted by Vladimir Lande. Dmitri Shostakovich’s First Concerto, Alexander Tsfasman’s Concert Suite and Nikolai Kapustin’s Second Concerto are compositions that combine classical structures with improvisational freedom, and a rigid rhythmical scale with an expressive emotional tone. The fresh astringency of the music, the soloist’s brilliant virtuosity and the perfect coordination of orchestral sound – the jazz vibes that fill this music will strike a chord with every listener.
