Alexander Malofeev is only 15 but all people who have had the chance to listen to him say that he is a new prodigy coming from Russia. He studies piano 12-14 hours a day and he doesn’t fear to perform with the greatest orchestras and conductors of the world. Everything is so marvellously natural to him. Alexander Malofeev will be soon in Brescia and Bergamo: in fact, he is opening the 54th edition of our Festival. He will play with the Filarmonica del Festival, conducted by Eduard Topchjan. Further proof of Malofeev’s wonderful talent stands out from the interview published by Corriere della Sera, where Enrico Parola describes him already in the title like a “Young Genius”.
