About Dmitrii Kalashnikov

I worked with more than 30 professors and musicians around the world. I worked with Mikhail Pletnev, Lang Lang, Andras Schiff, Imogen Cooper

Dmitrii Kalashnikov was born in Russia, Moscow. He has been a postgraduate student at the Royal College of Music, London, since 2018 in the class of Professor Vanessa Latarche as a Ruth West Scholar supported by the Neville Wathen Scholarship, and more recently as a Blüthner Pianos scholar. His earlier studies began at the age of five at the Moscow secondary special music school named after Gnessin in the classes of Ada Traub and Tatyana Vorobieva. In 2017 he graduated with honours from the Moscow State Conservatory P.I. Tchaikovsky, where he was taught by Professor Elena Kuznetsova. His prizes have included the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Rosebowl at the RCM, awarded to a student of distinction, the winner of the 2019 final of the Jacques Samuel Intercollegiate Piano Competition (London) and, in the same year, the first prize at Les Etoiles Du Piano International Piano Competition (France). In 2021 he won first price on the Junior Intercollegiate Piano Competition (Beethoven Piano Society of Europe). Dmitrii performs regularly with the Russian National Orchestra under the direction of Mikhail Pletnev. In December 2014, Mikhail Pletnev and Dmitrii Kalashnikov gave a two -piano recital in the Great Hall of the Moscow State Conservatory.

He has performed Hummel Piano Concerto in. A minor no 2 with the RCM Symphony Orchestra as winner of the RCM Concerto competition. In 2019 Imogen Cooper chose Dmitrii for her master-classes after audition in the Royal Academy of Music who sponsored Imogen Music Trust fund. Helping others plays a big role in Dmitrii’s life. For several years, together with a young talented artist - Gavriil Kochevrin, Dmitrii Kalashnikov organized evenings for the benefit of orphans in the House-Museum of Marina Tsvetaeva. Recent major concerts have included those at the State Tretyakov gallery in Moscow where he played at the opening of the largest projects of the Museum (Valentin Serov, Vasily Kandinsky and others), and at the opening of the season at the Theater Opera and Ballet of Nizhniy Novgorod in the presence of HE the Ambassador of Japan to Russia. In may 2021 Dmitrii Kalashnikov played for Sir Andras Schiff in Royal College of Music and after this master-class Sir Andras Schiff invited him to play on the Oxford Piano Festival Masterclass in 2021. Director of the London Philharmonic Orchestra invited Dmitrii to play Concerto by Tchaikovsky №1 in 2023 with LPO. Dmitrii Graduated the Royal College of Music in 2021 with distinction and now he is a student in University of Music and Performing Arts (Vienna), prof. Anna Malikova. In July he participated on the Lille’s piano festival in Louvre 2 (France) the concert in the Wigmore Hall, and in November 2021 he played on the Lang Lang’s master class (konzerthause, Vienna).
