Dmitry Masleev, pianist, winner of the 1st prize of the International Tchaikovsky Competition (2015) and the 3rd prize of the Russian Music Competition (2014)
I knew about the Russian Music Competition for a long time and even planned to participate in 2010, but the circumstances were different, and I took part four years later. To become a laureate there is always a big element of luck, but, without hard work nothing will work. In the year of the music competition, there is also a Tchaikovsky competition, in the same specialties, and the programs are similar. Then I decided to apply for both competitions.
I always thank my teachers from the music school of my native city of Ulan-Ude: Chernykh Olga and Stepanova Elena. From the Novosibirsk - Berman Irina.
Of course, the professor of the Moscow Conservatory- Mikhail Petukhov.
The creative path is a difficult way, it has a place for both joys and disappointments. But there will always be good music with us, and that helps. I was lucky to be able to do what I love - to sit at the instrument at home and on stage. To perform on stage is a great happiness!
What can I say to the competitions and organizer «ROSCONCERT»?
Of course, great luck and great competitions! Thank you for your great contribution to our common cause!
