NEW ZEALAND HERALD, 98

NEW ZEALAND HERALD June 5, 1998 Masterly start for piano series with real promise Oleg Marshev — Town Hall You couldn’t have wished for a better start to the Purely Piano series than this. Warm and comfortable in the Town Hall’s great little Concert Chamber, the capacity audience was prepared to be suitably impressed by this young Russian pianist who’s been getting glowing reviews for his recent recordings. In fact, Marshev swept everyone off their feet. He has a quality of pianism that combines a brilliant technique with breathtakingly expressive effects, and his masterly control of phrases goes hand in hand with an unfailing ability to read, handle and project complex textures with admirable ease. He approaches the piano like...

L’ECO DI BERGAMO 98

L'ECO DI BERGAMO February 1998 Oleg Marshev, virtuosismo con rigore Il pianista suona per il Quartetto, convince con la sua abilità tecnica ma colpisce soprattutto per la lucida capacità di dominio del suono. Per Oleg Marshev la musica eseguita sembra davvero essere una continua, fantastica rincorsa verso il limite. Un limite che egli pone bene in alto, quando lo si valuti semplicemente dalle scelte e dall'articolazione del suo programma, interamente giocato, nella fattispecie, su compositori più o meno famosi aventi come centro di riferimento Franz Liszt.

Tanto è possibile se ci si chiama Oleg Marshev, il pianista russo, autentico virtuoso di razza, che ha eseguito in tre concerti, proposti da1la...

FREIES WORT. Poulenc – Double concerto

FREIES WORT February 1996 The conductor Oleg Caetani and pianists Konstantin Scherbakov and Oleg Marshev are on the same spiritual wavelength.. Their respective biographies make impresseive reading, raising expectations which are not disappointed in their performances. It was thanks to the two world-class pianists Konstantin Scherbakov and Oleg Marshev that the audience enjoyed the Poulenc concerto so much. They fully exploited the possibilities given them by the composer, playing with virtuosity, wit, temperament, elegance and imagination…Despite their highly contrasting physical approaches at the keyboard - one concentrated and introspective, the other showing his emotions more readile - their ensemble never faltered. Russische “Troika” und exzellente philharmonie Suhler Publikum feierte Solisten und Orchester Manchmal führt den Zufall eine glückliche Hand, Jene...

CITIZEN-TIMES. ASHEVILLE

CITIZEN-TIMES November 23, 1999 Symphony's Russian program rich in technical virtuosity ASHEVILLE - Playing the impassioned, exciting music of three great Russian composers, the Asheville Symphony Orchestra conducted by Robert Hart Baker was in top form Saturday evening before a large audience in Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. Although Asheville audiences are overly fond of responding to even the most mediocre performance with a standing ovation, Saturday's efforts by orchestra and soloist -were richly deserving of the most emphatic accolade an audience can offer.

In recent years, Asheville...

Вечерний Алматы – 22.01.2015. Кредо пианиста – искренность

Олег Маршев: Кредо пианиста—искренность Новость о том, что всемирно известный пианист Олег Маршев сыграет в филармонии Третий фортепианный концерт Сергея Прокофьева, быстро облетела Алматы и собрала полный зал слушателей. Данный приезд маэстро был уже четвертым и смог осуществиться благодаря совместным усилиям салона пианино и роялей Pianos, Казахской государственной филармонии имени Жамбыла и Алматинского музыкального колледжа имени П. Чайковского. Олег Маршев – пианист поэтического склада, в его исполнении, всегда проникнутом искренностью, завораживающе тепло звучали лирические страницы концерта, эпизоды философских раздумий. Темп подвижных разделов пианист задавал очень быстрый, но красота пассажей была не в бравурности, а в том, что они переливались, как легкие звуковые потоки, органично вписываясь в главные мелодические мысли.
