Biography
Denis Matsuev

Since his triumph at the 11th International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1998, Denis Matsuev has become a virtuoso in the Russian pianistic tradition. He regularly performs with the Berlin, Vienna, New York, Munich, and Israel philharmonic orchestras; Chicago, London, Bavarian Radio, and Pittsburgh symphony orchestras; and Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Milan’s Filarmonica della Scala, and Lucerne Festival Orchestra. As Capell-Virtuos of the Staatskapelle Dresden during the 2017–18 season, he performed in numerous concerts in Dresden and on tour with music director Christian Thielemann. He is continually reengaged with Russian orchestras, including the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Mariinsky, and Russian National orchestras. In the 2019–20 season he is artist-in-residence at the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.

In recital, Mr. Matsuev can be heard in the world’s great halls, including an annual appearance at Carnegie Hall. His extensive discography includes acclaimed recital discs and concerto recordings with the New York Philharmonic, London Symphony, and Bavarian Radio Symphony orchestras and cyclical recordings of Russian concertos with the Mariinsky Orchestra led by Valery Gergiev.

Denis Matsuev is a member of Russia’s Presidential Council for Culture and Arts and was the official ambassador for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which he opened with a globally broadcast performance on Moscow’s Red Square. He is artistic director of Switzerland’s Rachmaninoff Foundation, and he curates and directs his own concert series, Denis Matsuev Invites, at Moscow Conservatory’s Great Hall. He chaired the piano jury at the 2019 Tchaikovsky Competition. Since 2008 he has presided over the foundation New Names, which selects and supports talented young Russian musicians, artists, and poets in the achievement of their professional goals. For his work with the organization, he has been named a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador.
