Dmitry Rachmanov participated in the piano festival “Festival Internacional y Masterclass de Piano” in September 2017 in Monterrey, Mexico with a series of master-classes and a solo recital (www.interpianomasterfest.com).
In October 2017, Dmitry gave a series of recitals in collaboration with the New York-based Russian soprano Elena Mindlina, in a program of the Russian Art Song, with works by Glinka, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, Prokofiev and Shostakovich. Elena and Dmitry gave performances at Cal State Northridge, Irvine Valley College and Biola University, among other venues, followed by master-classes.
Rachmanov’s 2018 calendar year started on January 3 & 4 with video recording sessions at New York’s DiMenna Center for Classical Music of Alexander Scriabin’s 12 Etudes Op. 8, 24 Preludes Op. 11, 4 Preludes, Op. 37 (completing those sets) as well as Mazurkas, Op. 3, all part of his ongoing traversal of the Russian master’s piano works for his Scriabin Video Anthology project. Next recording sessions, including sonatas Nos. 3 & 6 are slated for May 21-22 of this year at California State University Northridge. In January Dmitry also gave a lecture on the music of Scriabin and a piano master-class for the Music Teachers Association of California, Glendale branch. He also gave a class for the Sara Compinsky series in SoCal.
In February Rachmanov served on the adjudication panel of the Los Angeles International Piano Competition (www.laipc.org/Aboutus/2018Competition.lay). Throughout the season he has adjudicated numerous local competitions and also served on the pre-selection jury for the 2018 edition of the PianoTexas Festival “A Pilgrimage to Russian Music” (www.pianotexas.org). Most recently Dmitry attended MTNA’s 2018 National Conference in Orlando, FL, followed by residencies at Charleston Southern University and North Carolina University Greensboro, where he taught master-classes and performed recitals of works by Schubert, Chopin, Scriabin and Rachmaninoff (on 3/19 and 3/20-21/2018 respectively).
