Denis Matsuev, piano

Denis Matsuev stands out as a virtuoso in the grandest Russian piano tradition.

Since his 1998 triumph in the 11th International Tchaikovsky Competition, he has established himself as one of the most prominent pianists of his generation. He returns for his fifth UMS appearance — and second recital — to open the 138th UMS Choral Union Series. “Even in today’s overrun piano virtuoso market, Denis Matsuev stands out…He possesses an epic technique, playing with seemingly superhuman speed, power, and agility.” (Boston Globe)
