About the Event
Described as “the latest phenomenon of the Russian piano school” (Corriere della Sera), Alexander Malofeev came to international prominence when, in 2014, he won the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians at age 13. Reviewing the performance, Amadeus noted, “Contrary to what could be expected of a youngster … he demonstrated not only high technical accuracy but also an incredible maturity. Crystal clear sounds and perfect balance revealed his exceptional ability.” Since this triumph, Malofeev has quickly established himself as one of the most prominent pianists of his generation.
In addition to the Tchaikovsky Competition, he has won numerous prizes, including the Grand Prix of the International Competition for Young Pianists Grand Piano Competition and second prize at the first China International Music Competition. In 2017 Malofeev became the first Young Yamaha Artist.
In 2020, Malofeev recorded Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto with the Tatarstan National Symphony Orchestra and Alexander Sladkovsky for Sony Classical’s Tchaikovsky 2020 boxset.
