Alexander Malofeev


About this Artist

Alexander Malofeev came to international prominence when, in 2014, he won the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians at age 13. Reviewing the performance, Amadeus noted, “Contrary to what could be expected of a youngster… he demonstrated not only high technical accuracy but also an incredible maturity. Crystal clear sounds and perfect balance revealed his exceptional ability.” Since this triumph, Malofeev has quickly established himself as one of the most prominent pianists of his generation.

Highlights of the 2023/24 season include Malofeev’s return to the Bournemouth Symphony for a multi-concert residency, a solo tour in China, and a European tour with Filarmonica della Scala and Riccardo Chailly, as well as performances at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Munich Isarphilharmonie, Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, and Carnegie Hall in New York. He performs with the National Symphony Orchestra, Lucerne Festival Orchestra, Frankfurt Radio Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra under Kent Nagano, and Orchestre de la Suisse Romande under Marin Alsop.

Malofeev performs with some of the best-known orchestras and most distinguished conductors around the world. He has been a guest of renowned music festivals and series including Verbier Festival, Rheingau Music Festival, Tanglewood Music Festival, Aspen Music Festival, and the Celebrity Series of Boston.

Malofeev was born in Moscow in October 2001. Now living in Berlin, he continues to give concerts at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, where he opened the 30th-anniversary concert of the renowned Meester Pianists series. In addition to his First Prize at the Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians, he has won numerous awards and prizes at international competitions and festivals, including the Grand Prix of the first International Competition for Young Pianists Grand Piano Competition, the Premio Giovane Talento Musicale dell’anno, and Best Young Musician of 2017. In 2017, Malofeev became the first Young Yamaha Artist.
