Dang Thai Son

Praised as “a sovereign master of her art” by the German newspaper the Süddeutsche Zeitung, we are pleased to welcome for the first time Latvian born pianist Dina Yoffe to the faculty of the Academy and a guest performer of the Festival.  Winner of the 2nd prize in the IX International Chopin Competition and VI International Schumann Piano Competition. Dina Yoffe completed her training at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory under the tutelage of legendary piano professor and important proponent of the Heinrich Neuhaus school.  She has performed with notable conductors such as Zubin Mehta, Neville Marriner, Valery Gergiev, Dmitri Kitayenko, James De Priest and Gidon Kremer.  She is also a avid chamber musician and has played with many internationally renowned musicians, such as Gidon Kremer, Yuri Bashmet, and Vadim Repin, to name but a few.  She has also served on the jury of the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, and International Cleveland, Hamamatsu, Maria Canals and Liszt International Competitions.

 As an added bonus to the Festival, Dina will be joined in her recital by husband and violinist Michael Vaiman, a former student of the legendary David Oistrach at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow. He has performed as soloist with some of the top orchestras of the world including the Berlin Symphony, the Moscow Philharmonic, the St. Petersburg Symphony and the Moscow Soloists to name but a few.  And his recordings have won praise for his “immaculate technique, poise and tonal purity” by Strad Magazine.
