“Musicality of metaphysical proportions” – Neue Musikzeitung
“Virtuoso brilliance” – Financial Times
Last season, Show One brought Toronto the first and only joint appearance by Lukas Geniusas and Lucas Debargue, whose prize-winning performances were the talk of the 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition.
Now the Gold Medalist makes his Canadian debut!
Siberian-born Dmitry Masleev has excited music lovers in his homeland, in Europe’s capitals, and in New York, Seoul and Beijing. With Maestros Valery Gergiev and Yury Bashmet, he twice toured Japan in his first touring season.
In January, he makes his highly anticipated debut at Carnegie Hall’s Isaac Stern Auditorium, in a year that includes a German tour with the National Philharmonic of Russia under Maestro Vladimir Spivakov, an Asian tour with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France under Mikko Franck, and many recitals and orchestral appearances.
Critics rave about his impeccable technique, sense of form, brilliance, lyricism, and spontaneity of style.
In Toronto, he demonstrates his range and sensitivity in Scarlatti sonatas, Beethoven’s Les adieux, Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 2, Rachmaninov preludes and etudes-tableaux, and, to cap things off, Liszt’s pyrotechnic Totentanz.
