Personal Description:

Maxim **Removed By Admin** is an award-winning solo and chamber musician who performs a wide range of repertoire from Bach to contemporary composers. Born in Moscow, he began piano lessons at the age of five, making his concerto debut at the age of nine and his recital debut a year later.
Awarded a scholarship, he obtained his Bachelor of Music degree with Distinction from Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Conservatoire. His teachers there included Sergei Dorensky, Nikolai Lugansky, Pavel Nersessian and Andrei Pisarev, who are his greatest musical influences.

During his studies he won several music competitions including Second Prize and Audience Prize at the 2015 International Gian Battista Viotti Piano Competition in Vercelli, Italy, Grand Prix and Special Cuomo Foundation Prize at the 2014 International Chopin Piano Competition in Rome and Grand Prix, First Prize and Special Prize ‘For the best performance of a work by Tchaikovsky’ at the 2013 International Konstantin Igumnov Piano Competition for Young Pianists in Lipetsk, Russia.

In 2019 Maxim completed his Master of Music in Performance degree, also with Distinction, at the Royal Northern College of Music in the class of Ashley Wass, supported by a Leverhulme Arts Scholarship. He is currently studying on the International Artist Diploma course at the RNCM, supported by the FM Wright Piano Award.
In 2018, Maxim won the RNCM’s most prestigious award, the Gold Medal and played in the Gold Medal Winners concert at Wigmore Hall in the Spring of 2019. He most recently won First Prize and Special Jury Mention at the Cantù International Piano Concerto Competition (Italy, 2019), Runner-up Prize at the Bromsgrove International Musicians Competition (2019, United Kingdom), and Second Prize and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Prize at the 2019 Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition. Also, he was selected as a Kirckman Concert Society Artist for 2019-20 and played his full-length solo debut at Wigmore Hall in October 2019.

Maxim has been a soloist of the St Petersburg House of Music since 2012 and has performed in prestigious venues across Russia, Italy, Spain, UK, Brazil and US, including Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Bridgewater Hall and the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire. He has performed internationally with orchestras including the St Petersburg State Academic Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra of the Teatro Carlo Felice, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and The Hallé, among others.

At the invitation of Nikolai Lugansky Maxim took part in the International Rachmaninov Music Festival in Russia. Other festival appearances include the ‘Gathering Friends’ International Music Festival at the Moscow Conservatory, South Downs Summer Music Festival in Alfriston, Chester Music Festival and Battle Festival.

As a chamber musician, Maxim won the 6th International Sergei Taneyev Chamber Ensembles Competition in Kaluga, Russia (First Prize, Special Tatiana Gaydamovich Award and Special Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory Prize ‘For the best performance of a work by Taneyev’, 2017) and has worked with Henk Guittart of the Schoenberg Quartet and Alexander Bonduriansky of the Moscow Trio.

Maxim has broadcast on Italian TV channels TG2 RAI and TGVercelli, and on BBC Radio 3.

Tutoring Experience:

I`ve worked for 3 years as a piano teacher and accompanist at Music School in Moscow. I have various students of different levels and different ages, from beginners to professionals. I prepare my students for various exams, concerts and competitions.
My students get exceptional progress and distinctions in their music exams as well as won piano competitions around Europe.

All levels and ages starting from 6 years old are welcome to have a lesson with me.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that all students are different and each requires a unique approach. For example, I'm teaching my adult students how to use their imagination in music and at the same time how to understand the composer's style of the executed works. But this approach does not fit the teaching of young pianists at all. First of all, I instil a love of music and the piano instrument itself in them, because it is very important to find the right approach to the child, to interest him from the very beginning. In my classes, students not only enjoy but spend time with benefits. For me, teaching is not only the development of a student as a pianist, but it also improves me as a pianist, teacher and artist.
