Hailed by The New York Times as “the successor to Russian keyboard lions like Evgeny Kissin, Arcadi Volodos, and … Vladimir Horowitz,” Denis Matsuev has become a fast-rising star on the international stage, winning acclaim from critics and audiences alike. Winner of the 11th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and the Shostakovich Prize, the Siberian-born Matsuev has made his name internationally as a passionate and powerful virtuoso and ardent Romantic, specializing in the music of Rachmaninoff. The Washington Post has described Matsuev as an "absolute powerhouse of a pianist, capable of vanquishing the most technically demanding music in the repertory,” and “a thoughtful, proportionate and highly sensitive musician.”

Matsuev appears regularly with many of the world's best-known orchestras and most prominent conductors. Highlights of upcoming seasons include appearances with the Israel Philharmonic and Zubin Mehta in Russia, followed by a tour in Israel under Yuri Temirkanov; appearances with the Royal Philharmonic under Charles Dutoit, tours with the London Symphony and Mariinsky Orchestra under Valery Gergiev in the US, Europe and Japan; appearances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Krzysztof Urbanski; a US tour with the Pittsburgh Symphony under Manfred Honeck; appearances in Canada with the Montreal Symphony under Mikhail Pletnev; in Europe with the Oslo Philharmonic and Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Swiss Romande and Luzern Symphony Orchestra; a tour with Concertgebouw under Mariss Jansons; and appearances with the Israel Philharmonic with Kurt Masur.
