“This great poet of the piano” — Hilary Finch, The Times
Russian pianist Dmitri Alexeev is one of the world's most highly regarded artists. His critically praised recitals on the world's leading concert stages and his concert appearances with the most prestigious orchestras have secured his position as one of "the most remarkable pianists of the day" (Daily Telegraph).
He has performed with most of world great orchestras such as Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Concertgebouw, all the London orchestras, etc., and under many celebrated conductors (Boulez, Muti, Giulini, Jansons, Gergiev, Tennstedt and others).
Dmitri Alexeev has made many fine recordings for EMI, BMG, Virgin Classics, Hyperion and Russian labels. Following his Virgin Classics recording of the complete Rachmaninov Preludes, which won the Edison Award in the Netherlands, BBC Music Magazine said: "He is a pianist at once aristocratic, grand and confessionally poetic. This is an inspiring disc."
