According to The Neva Time, “the decisions of the Piano Panel were uncompromising. There could not have been a more accurate and fair choice.” Describing the creative character of Dmitry Masleev, music critics note the impeccable technique, sense of form, brilliance, lyricism, and spontaneity of style.
Born and raised in Ulan-Ude, a Siberian town between Lake Baikal and the Mongolian border, Mr. Masleev was educated at the Moscow Conservatory (class of Professor Mikhail Petukhov) and the International Music Academy at Lake Como. During his student years he won a number of international competitions, which lead to touring invitations in Germany, Italy, France, Romania and Russia.
