“The latest phenomenon of the Russian piano school” (Corriere della Sera), “Alexander Malofeev manifests the piano mastery of the new millennium in itself” (Il Giornale)

Young “Russian genius” (Corriere della Sera) came to international prominence when, in 2014, he won the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians at age thirteen. “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” (Amadeus). Malofeev has quickly established himself as one of the most prominent pianists of his generation.

Alexander’s recent and appearances include a Asia tour with the Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala under Riccardo Chailly, with the Orchestra del Teatro Lirico di Cagliari under Mikhail Pletnev, concerts in the UK with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Kirill Karabits, concerts in the Italy with RAI National Symphony Orchestra и Fabio Luis, performances in Tonhalle Zurich, Conservatorio “Giuseppe Verdi” di Milano, Kleinhans Music Hall (Buffalo, USA), Teatro Petruzzelli (Italy) and Celebrity Series of Boston (USA).

Maestro Riccardo Chailly said about the pianist: “I first heard Malofeev when Valery Gergiev performed with him at the Teatro alla Scala three years ago. He was only 14, and he amazed me with his talent. Because that is not just a child prodigy: he is very young, but already possesses depth and technical abilities, and also musical and mnemonic, which makes him an excellent interpreter of the 3rd Concert of Rachmaninov, which is a problem for many pianists in the world.” (Corriere della Sera, October 2019).
