The British music magazine The Gramophone reviewed Oleg Marshev’s recording of Prokofiev music as “one of the most authoritative and impassioned performances on disc so far”.

Oleg Marshev was born in Baku, in the former USSR, and trained with Valentina Aristova at the Gnesin School for Highly Gifted Children and with Mikhail Voskresensky at the Moscow Conservatory where he completed his Performance Doctorate in 1988 gaining the Diploma with Honor.

1991 saw his New York debut with a highly acclaimed recital at the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. The following year he appeared at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw which led to other invitations to perform at this prestigious hall. Since then he has performed throughout the world from Canada to New Zealand, performing with such orchestras as London Philharmonic and appearing at important venues and festivals worldwide.

Marshev is a direct representative of the fifth generation of Russian pianism since Liszt, through Alexander Siloti, Konstantin Igumnov and Voskresensky’s teacher, Lev Oborin. Alongside his concert engagements, Oleg gives masterclasses in many different countries and is a Professor at the Anton Bruckner University in Linz, Austria.

Oleg Marshev’s first recording project was the complete original works for solo piano by Prokofiev (5 CDs) for Danacord Records. He has since recorded over 35 CDs for the same label, featuring works by Schubert, Brahms, Strauss, Rubinstein, Rachmaninov and others. He has made the world premier recording of Emil von Sauer’s complete piano music in 6 volumes. In July 2014 two releases came out – Chopin – Complete works for piano and orchestra in two CDs and Mendelssohn – Complete works for piano and orchestra in four CDs.

All Marshev’s recordings have been received to widespread critical acclaim by leading international publications. His Shostakovich Concerti disc was reviewed thus by BBC Music magazine: “Marshev a phenomenon – master of every mood from strip-cartoon crispness to thundering monster, but above all a controlling sensibility of intelligence and feeling”.
