Vladimir Mogilevsky was born in Moscow in 1970. When he was only five the Gnesin Music School discovered his exceptional talent. In 1994 he graduated from the Gnesin Music Academy with the highest honours as a concert pianist. Since 1995 he has lived in Germany.
Mogilevsky is an exceptionally versatile artist with a repertoire from Bach to contemporary music. In prestigious concert halls and festivals in Moscow, when he was still only eight years old, he played pieces written especially for him by noted composers. Mogilevsky is also very much in demand as a chamber musician. His concert partners include Matt Haimovitz (cello) and Vadim Repin (violin). His recital with Vadim Repin during the international Ohrid Summer Festival in 1998 was awarded the jury grand prize for the best concert of the festival.
Mogilevsky has won prizes in numerous international festivals and competitions. Among others, at the Porto International Piano Competition in 1992 he won second prize as well as a special prize for the best interpretation of a Beethoven Sonata. After his triumph in Porto, he made his debuts in nearly every European country, and also in Israel and South Africa.
Mogilevsky is always on the lookout for worthwhile rarities and plays not only the typical classical standard repertoire but also brings new life to less well-known works of the great composers.
After the striking success of his solo debut recital in the Berliner Philharmonie in January 2004, Mogilevsky has performed regularly in the Great Hall of the Berlin Konzerthaus.
Vladimir Mogilevsky is an official Steinway Artist.
In December 2004 in Berlin Vladimir Mogilevsky was awarded the International Prize for Outstanding Achievements in Musical Culture.
