Web site www.klassik.com published the following review on Denis Matsuev’s concert in Baden-Baden (July, 23):
„Der Gewinner des renommierten Tschaikowsky-Wettbewerbs 1998 hat sich mittlerweile insbesondere als Interpret des russischen Repertoires einen Namen gemacht.
Er verfügt über eine pianistische Technik, deren Umschreibung als virtuos fast untertrieben ist. Das Faszinierendste an seinem Spiel ist jedoch, wie er diese technischen Fähigkeiten dazu einsetzt, Musik zu gestalten, zu formen, manchmal regelrecht zurechtzumeißeln.Read more... Tags:

This second, star-studded instalment of Gergiev’s Szymanowski cycle features Toby Spence as soloist in the Third Symphony, ‘Song of the Night’ and internationally renowned pianist, Denis Matsuev in the virtuosic ‘Symphonie concertante’, Symphony No 4. Szymanowski’s deeply personal choral work, Stabat Mater, completes the cycle and stars Sally Matthews and Ekaterina Gubanova, and introduces the young baritone, Kostas Smoriginas to LSO Live listeners.
For decades Szymanowski’s music was rarely heard outside Poland. Today, he is recognised as one of Poland’s greatest musical figures. His desire to embody the music of his native land and his incorporation of the folkloric sounds of the Polish mountains make his orchestral works a must for anyone with an interest in Polish culture and music.
A 38 ans, le musicien fait partie du club restreint de l'élite mondiale du piano. Arpentant les scènes d'un continent à l'autre, dirigeant plusieurs festivals, ce passionné incarne autant qu'il la revendique la grande tradition russe. Une bonne école pour les pianistes, s'il en est, à laquelle pourtant il serait faux de le cantonner. Improvisateur hors pair, Denis Matsuev est aussi un amoureux du jazz. Rencontre avec un personnalité attachante que l'on écoutera cet été en France, à l'Annecy Classic Festival.
La Rapsodia sobre un tema de Paganini (1934) de Sergei Rachmaninov fue la obra común a los dos programas presentados este año, que permitió por un lado conocer al brillante pianista ruso Denis Matsuev, pero también volver a percibir que la concentración de cada atril, la perfecta afinación y el justo equilibrio sonoro siguen siendo una marca distintiva de la orquesta holandesa.Read more...

In the evening I performed a concert with the famous Dutch Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and a brilliant maestro Mariss Jansons, its chief conductor for many years already.
I was deeply impressed by the Royal Concertgebouw Hall, where we performed and of course by the orchestra, as it is one of the best orchestras in the world, with an long history, incredible sound and rich in tradition. We performed Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini by S. Rachmaninoff. I’ve had honour to work with Mariss Jansons for many years already, but it was the first time when I performed with him and the Concertgebouw orchestra. Now we are off to South America. I know that there are waves of protest on the streets. But we decided not cancel the tour and I really hope that classical music will help public there to be more optimistic and positive thinking and smooth the conflict.
Denis Matsuev, an extraordinary pianist, offers, as part of the 140th anniversary of the birth of Sergei Rachmaninoff an album that confronts the Concerto No. 2 with the Rhapsody in Blue by Gershwin. A confrontation at first somewhat unexpected between the romanticism of the Russian and the American jazz rhythm. Yet these two composers are closely related to New York City where this album was recorded in collaboration with the orchestra of this city, under the baton of Music Director Alan Gilbert.Read more...

I can't tell you how overwhelmed I was, what shock I experienced today in the city of Lucerne, where I will perform the concert with Lucerne Orchestra, organized by the Foundation of Rachmaninoff tomorrow. I am going to play Third Piano Concerto by Sergei Vasilyevich.
Music Hall in Lucerne is unique per se. But today when I came on the stage, I was shocked, because the piano of Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff stood there. That very piano from Villa Senar, I played 6 years ago when I recorded unknown Rachmaninoff’s works.
