About the Artist

Watch Arsenii's prizewinning solo recital in the final round of the 2023 Busoni International Piano Competition

"Arsenii's greatest strength is his brilliant and fine technique, full of nuances, combined with an aristocratic elegance. The young musician already has a very personal style and knows how to charm and captivate the audience." ©Muzlife Magazine

"Arsenii Moon is highly gifted. He is an extraordinary virtuoso capable of capturing the listener's attention with a fascinating and breathtaking story. He is equally at home with the deepest pages of Bach as well the transcendental etudes of Liszt and mazurkas of Chopin." ©Sergei Babayan

Winner of the 64th Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition, 24-year-old pianist Arsenii Moon won as well the prestigious Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli Award per unanimous verdict of the jury, which has not been awarded for almost three decades.

Concert tours for the 2024–25 season include more than 50 performances solo and with orchestras in major venues and festivals in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, France, Austria, South Korea and Japan, including Konzerthaus Vienna, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Seoul Arts Center, and Tonhalle Zürich, as well as recording productions with Deutsche Grammophone and with the ORF Vienna Radio Orchestra.

Arsenii was born in St Petersburg in 1999. At the age of six he began to study the piano with Elena Zyabreva. In 2010–2017 he studied with Alexander Sandler, initially at the Secondary Special Music School of the Rimsky-Korsakov St. Petersburg State Conservatory, and subsequently at the Conservatory itself. He is now finishing his degree as a student of Sergei Babayan at The Juilliard School in New York.

In 2009 Arsenii made his debut with a symphony orchestra at the St. Petersburg Philharmonia, and in 2011 he gave his first recital at the Mozarthaus Vienna. Throughout his career Arsenii has been awarded numerous awards such as the Sviatoslav Richter Grant from the Mstislav Rostropovich Foundation, the Yuri Temirkanov Prize, and the Verbier Festival Tabor Piano Award.

In earlier stages of his career Arsenii won prizes in several major competitions, including first prize at the Horowitz Competition in Ukraine, second prize at the Cliburn Junior Competition in the USA, first prize at the Arthur Rubinstein in Memoriam Competition in Poland, and first prize in the St. Priest competition in France. He has appeared at the Mariinsky International Piano Festival and the Yury Bashmet festival in Minsk. In 2015–2021 he was regularly featured in programs of the St. Petersburg Music House. Arsenii has appeared with orchestras including the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, The Minnesota Orchestra, Orchestra Sinfonia di Bari, St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra, Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra, and the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra. He has collaborated with conductors including Stanislav Kochanovsky, Mei-Ann Chen, Mark Russell Smith, Ian Hobson, and Valery Gergiev, among others.
