ABOUT THE ARTIST
Prior to 1990, Dmitri remained one of the best-kept secrets of the former Soviet Union. Born to a family of professional musicians, he was raised in the musical tradition of his homeland. His unusual talent resulted in his acceptance while still a child to study under great Soviet pianist and Professor of the Moscow Conservatory Yakov Flier...
...Yakov Flier (at his time) was studying with professor Konstantin Igumnov, who was studying with Alexander Ziloti, who was a student of Franz Liszt and a cousin of Sergey Rachmaninoff. This way, Dmitri Ratser’s artistry reveals a unique combination of European pianistic style of Liszt and Russian pianistic traditions of the Great Rachmaninoff.-- Shortly after he was awarded his second diploma, as Concert Artist and Teacher, Mr.Ratser was awarded the First Prize in Moscow's All-Soviet union Rachmaninoff Competition. Three years later he received First Prize in Budapest's Liszt International Jubilee Competition. For several years, Mr. Ratser performed, both in recital and with symphony orchestras, across the Soviet Union, as well as on Soviet radio and television. He attained recognition as one of the few pianists to include in his regularly performed repertoire the complete works for piano and orchestra of Sergei Rachmaninoff.
In 1990, Mr.Ratser formally was added to the roster entitled "Soloists of the Moscow Philharmonic", and in the same year he first performed outside the former Soviet Union, with the Austin, Texas Symphony Orchestra. He was returned to perform in the United States each season since his American debut. In the United States, he has performed at Kennedy Center three times with the National Symphony Orchestra under Mstislav Rostropovich, in solo appearance at Carnegie Hall in New-York, and with symphony orchestras in over thirty-five cities.
