Having impressed audiences worldwide with his fiery performances and distinctive interpretations, Maxim Mogilevsky made his debut at age thirteen with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra to widespread acclaim. Since that time he has gone on to perform as a soloist with major orchestras around the world, and has undertaken many unique artistic projects. Called by The Washington Post “a pianist with distinctive personality, outstanding technique, and an inclination to stamp his own imprint on whatever he plays,” Mogilevsky has become a favorite of musicians and audiences worldwide.
Highlights of his 2011-12 season include a month-long tour of South America with the St. Petersburg Symphony, as well as an appearance as a featured artist at the Russian National Orchestra Festival, where he presented a collaborative project with four ballerinas from the Mariinsky Ballet performing Tchaikovsky’s Seasons. Maxim will also perform at the Red Sea Festival in Israel, the Great Hall of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, and in recital in Los Angeles, Miami, Lugano, and Paris.
Recent orchestral appearances include those with the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Seattle Symphony, Orchestre National de France, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Kirov Orchestra, and St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra. Maxim has performed under the batons of internationally renowned conductors, including Seiji Ozawa, Gerard Schwarz, and Valery Gergiev.
Along with recital performances on five continents, Maxim’s notable appearances include those at Carnegie Hall, the Kravis Center, Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Dumbarton Oaks, and the Edinburgh, Ravinia, and Spoleto Festivals. Maxim has also toured extensively throughout Europe, North and South America, Asia, and Africa.
A recent guest artist at Boston University, Mr. Mogilevsky worked as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Oberlin Conservatory from 1996-2001, and as Visiting Assistant Professor at the Eastman School of Music in Fall 2009.
Maxim recently released a recording of the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 3 with Vladimir Lande and the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra for Marquis Records. He was also featured on recordings of Stravinsky’s Les Noces with both the Rotterdam Philharmonic and the Mariinsky Orchestra under Valery Gergiev, which received a 2011 International Classical Music Award.
“Mogilevsky’s performance was pure ravishment.”
