Denis Matsuev


— Piano

Denis Matsuev, the fast-rising young Russian pianist, made his Philharmonic debut in the Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra, which usually comes across as a perky work alive with jazzy energy and ornate piano writing. But Mr. Matsuev, wielding his athletic virtuosity and steely power, gave a chiseled, hard-driving yet transparent performance, matched in character and cool brilliance by Mr. Gergiev and the orchestra. The ovation was enormous, so Mr. Matsuev played an encore, showing his delicate side in a gently tinkling account of Liadov’s “Music Box.”
The New York Times

"His technique in this piece [Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3] is equaled only by a dozen or so pianists on the planet. That quality alone ensured success in this masterfully written showcase, guaranteed to bring audiences to their feet..."
Philadelphia Inquirer

"...Matsuev’s pianism has heroic force and finely calibrated control…”
The Independent
