Vladimir Feltsman (Piano)
 
       

Pianist and conductor Vladimir Feltsman is one of the most versatile and interesting musicians of our time. His vast repertoire encompasses music from the Baroque to 20th-century composers. A regular guest soloist with leading symphony orchestras in the United States and abroad, he appears on the most prestigious concert series and music festivals around the world.

In June of 2009, Mr. Feltsman returned to Singapore in recital and to Avery Fisher Hall where he performed the Rachmaninoff Variations on a Theme of Paganini with the New York Philharmonic. In July he opened the Hollywood Bowl Festival performing Prokofieff's 2nd Piano Concerto and played a recital at the Caramoor Music Festival in upstate New York. Also in the summer of 2009 he made his annual visit to the Aspen Music Festival performing Mozart K. 491 on one occasion and Book I of J.S. Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier on another.

In September of 2009, Feltsman performed Mozart's Concerto K595 on his own fortepiano with the American Classical Orchestra at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall and he recently returned to his native Moscow to conduct the Moscow Virtuosi Orchestra and to St. Petersburg performing Brahms' 2nd Piano Concerto with Valery Gergiev and the Kirov Orchestra. He will appear at Chicago's Orchestra Hall in recital, and travels to Beijing to perform the Tchaikovsky 1st Concerto with the Macao Orchestra. In December 2009 he appears in recital at Carnegie Hall; his 4th recital in 5 years at that venue. Other engagements for Vladimir Feltsman in the 2009-10 season include recitals at Washington DC's Strathmore Performing Arts Center, the University of Illinois' Krannert Center, the Tilles Center at Long Island University, and the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach. Orchestral engagements include appearances in London with the London Symphony Orchestra performing the Paganini Variations of Rachmaninoff, and the Kansas City Symphony playing Beethoven's "Emperor" Concerto.

Highlights of Vladimir Feltsman's 2008-09 season included performances of Prokofiev's 2nd Piano Concerto with the London Symphony Orchestra under Valery Gergiev in New York (Lincoln Center), Chicago, and Paris, concerts with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, the New World Symphony and the Orchestre de Paris under Michael Tilson Thomas, and recitals in New York and Chicago. He also played with and conducted the St. Petersburg Philharmonic. During the summer of 2008, Mr. Feltsman appeared at the Aspen, Ravinia, and La Jolla music festivals.

Mr. Feltsman expressed his lifelong devotion to the music of J.S. Bach in a cycle of concerts which presented the major clavier works of the composer and spanned four consecutive seasons (1992-1996) at the 92nd Street Y in New York. His more recent project, Masterpieces of the Russian Underground, unfolded a panorama of Russian contemporary music through an unprecedented survey of piano and chamber works by fourteen different composers from Shostakovich to the present day and was presented by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in January 2003 with great success. Mr. Feltsman served as Artistic Director for this project as well as performing in most of the pieces presented during the three concert cycle. The programs included a number of world and North American premieres and were also presented in Portland, Oregon and in Tucson, Arizona at the University of Arizona. In the fall of 2006, Mr. Feltsman performed all of the Mozart Piano Sonatas in New York at the Mannes School of Music and NYU's Tisch Center presented by New York University on a specially built replica of the Walter fortepiano.

Born in Moscow in 1952, Mr. Feltsman debuted with the Moscow Philharmonic at age 11. In 1969, he entered the Moscow Tchaikovsky State Conservatory of Music to study piano under the guidance of Professor Jacob Flier. He also studied conducting at both the Moscow and Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) Conservatories. In 1971, Mr. Feltsman won the Grand Prix at the Marguerite Long International Piano Competition in Paris; extensive touring throughout the former Soviet Union, Europe and Japan followed this.

In 1979, because of his growing discontent with the restrictions on artistic freedom under the Soviet regime, Mr. Feltsman signaled his intention to emigrate by applying for an exit visa. In response, he was immediately banned from performing in public and his recordings were suppressed. After eight years of virtual artistic exile, he was finally granted permission to leave the Soviet Union. Upon his arrival in the United States in 1987, Mr. Feltsman was warmly greeted at the White House, where he performed his first recital in North America. That same year, his debut at Carnegie Hall established him as a major pianist on the American and international scene.

A dedicated educator of young musicians, Mr. Feltsman holds the Distinguished Chair of Professor of Piano at the State University of New York, New Paltz, and is a member of the piano faculty at the Mannes College of Music in New York City. He is the founder and Artistic Director of the International Festival-Institute PianoSummer at SUNY New Paltz, a three-week-long, intensive training program for advanced piano students that attracts major young talents from all over the world.

Mr. Feltsman's extensive discography has been released on the Melodiya, Sony Classical, Music Masters, and Camerata, Tokyo labels. His discography includes eight albums of clavier works of J.S. Bach, recordings of Beethoven's last five piano sonatas, solo piano works of Schubert, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, Messiaen and Silvestrov, as well as concerti by Bach, Brahms, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, and Prokofiev.

Mr. Feltsman is an American citizen and lives in upstate New York.
