He studied at the Moscow Tchaikovsky, Moscow, and Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) Conservatories and went on to win the Grand Prix at the Marguerite Long International Piano Competition in Paris. In 1979, because of his growing discontent with the official Soviet ideology and rigid governmental control of the arts, Mr.

Feltsman applied for an exit visa from the Soviet Union. In response, he was immediately banned from performing in public. After eight years of struggle and virtual artistic exile, he was finally granted permission to leave the Soviet Union. Upon his arrival in the United States in 1987, Mr. Feltsman was warmly greeted at the White House, where he performed his very first concert in North America.

That same year his debut at Carnegie Hall established him as a major pianist on the American scene. Mr. Feltsman teaches at the Mannes College of Music and the State University of New York, New Paltz, where he is the founder and Artistic Director of the International Festival-Institute Piano Summer. Mr. Feltsman, who became a U.S.

citizen in 1995, lives in upstate New York. His discography includes six albums of clavier works of J.S. Bach, recordings of Beethoven's last five piano sonatas, solo piano works of Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms and Messiaen, as well as concerti by Bach, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev. His father is famous Russian composer Oscar Feltsman, known in the Soviet Union for popular songs and musical comedies. He recently appeared on 18 October 2008 in Stamford, Connecticut, U.S.A. to perform Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat Major, Opus 73, otherwise known as the "Emperor".

He was awarded a standing ovation for his astonishing virtuosity that night. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
