'The Legends of the Piano' Concert Series are aimed to showcase the heritage of classical pianism.

MCS Young Artists Fund in 2015 season starts with the new Concert Series 'The Legends of the Piano' led by the distinguished, world renowned Russian-born pianist Alexei Lubimov. Lubimov is widely recognised for championing new music and also known as a skilful interpreter of modern classical and traditional European music. In 2016 the series will be followed by legendary Badura Skoda and Sequeira Costa.

Born and raised in Russia, Alexei Lubimov studied at the Moscow Conservatory with Heinrich Neuhaus and Lew Naumov. He was prevented from leaving the Soviet Union because of his strong commitment to western music. His repertoire is much diversified; he is known for his exploration of traditional European classical music and experimental modern composers, including John Milton Cage, as well as Schoenberg and Stockhausen and Boulez, Ives, Ligeti, Part, and Webern. He is a founder of the Moscow Baroque Quartet, the Moscow Chamber Academy and the music festival 'Alternativa'. He has appeared with orchestras such as Helsinki-, Israel-, Los Angeles-, Munich and Petersburg Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic London, Russian National Orchestra, Orchestre Phil. de Radio France, Toronto Symphony and Deutsches Symphonieorchester Berlin under conductors like Ashkenazy, Jarvi, Kondrashin, Hogwood, Mackerras, Norrington, Pletnev, Saraste, Salonen, Janovski and Tortelier. In 2013 Alexei Lubimov has released his latest record of work by Beethoven 'Moonlight - Waldstein - Storm'.
