“Dmitry is one of the very few pianists I have heard in the last years to have a real, authentic individual voice in music making. He is a musician of integrity and unusually high sensitivity and his control of the instrument allows this sensitivity to come across to audiences.”

Piotr Anderszewski

Dmitry Ablogin is regarded as one of the most brilliant and creative keyboard artists of his generation.

He studied piano under the guidance of Vladimir Tropp at the Gnessin Academy in Moscow and graduated with distinction in 2012. His marked interest in historical pianos led him to Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts, where he studied fortepiano and historically informed performance with Jesper Bøje Christensen.

Dmitry has won prizes at numerous piano competitions: the 1st International Chopin Competition on Period Instruments (Warsaw, 2018), the International Competition “Musica Antiqua” for Pianoforte (Bruges, 2019), the German Piano Open (Hanover, 2016) to name a few. In October 2021, Dmitry won the 10th International German Pianist Award and made his début at the Alte Oper Frankfurt.

Dmitry performed at such concert halls as the Berlin Philharmonie, Cologne Philharmonie, Laeishalle Hamburg, Konzerthaus Freiburg, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Wiener Konzerthaus, Salle Cortot in Paris, Edinburgh Queen's Hall and Glasgow City Halls.

He appeared as a soloist together with the Freiburger Barockorchester, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, Nürnberger Symphoniker and many others.

Dmitry regularly performs at the “Chopin and his Europe” Festival in Warsaw and the Miami International Piano Festival (USA). He has also given concerts in Germany, Austria, Denmark, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Finland, Russia and Switzerland.  

As a chamber music partner, he works together with artists such as the Eliot String Quartet, the Henschel Quartet, Alena Baeva, Anastasia Kobekina and soprano Kateryna Kasper.

Dmitry has made CD recordings for prominent labels such as Naxos, Genuin, Organum Classics. In 2022, he released three albums, including his first solo recording featuring two versions of the Diabelli Variations by Beethoven – on a modern piano (Fazioli grand) and a period piano (Streicher Fortepiano 1825). This CD has been presented on BR Klassik and in the VAN Magazin as the Album of the week.

Two previous recordings, chamber music by César Franck with the Eliot Quartet and songs by Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn with soprano Kateryna Kasper were nominated for prestigious awards such as "Opus Klassik", "Preis der Deutsche Schallplattenkritik" and "International Classical Music Awards".

His most recent album has been released in October 2023 by the Chopin Institute. He recorded a unique selection of Chopin's late works on a Pleyel Fortepiano No. 14810 which once belonged to Chopin and was his very last instrument.

Dmitry is currently based in Germany. In addition to performing around the world, he leads a piano class at Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.
