a remarkable destiny... The first step to the stage took place at five,
at eight she's written her first fairy-tale-opera; at nine, piano
sonatas and chamber music. At ten, the first recital in Moscow,
which lasted more than two hours. At eleven, her first appearance
with a symphony orchestra; at twelve, a tour through the USSR
with the legendary conductor, N. Rakhlin, who performed the first
Tchaikowsky piano concerto with the young pianist.
She was among those favored few who had a huge, intoxicating success. Almost all the newspapers and magazines of the USSR, as well as many foreign editions, wrote about her unique phenomenon. Radio and TV spoke about her. Besides her rare talent and dillegence, this girl had an iron will and the firm faith in the path she had chosen.
|Dimitri Shastakovitch granted her great support in the development of
her talent, organizing the young pianist's first concerts and
presenting a concert piano to her. After graduating from the Moscow Conservatory and completing
post-graduate studies, she continued performing concerts.
Listeners in Europe, Latin America and Japan have admired her art.
Ms. Malinin-Fedkina made numerous appearances on TV; she also recorded many DVDs and CDs, which were always met with a great critical acclaim.
