Fabio Mechetti, conductor

Born in São Paulo, Fabio Mechetti is the Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Minas Gerais Philharmonic since its creation in 2008. Recently, he became the first Brazilian invited to lead an Asian orchestra, being appointed Principal Conductor of the Malaysian Philharmonic. In the United States, Mechetti was Resident Conductor of the San Diego Symphony, Principal Conductor of the Syracuse Symphony, and is now Conductor Emeritus of the Spokane Symphony and the Jacksonville Symphony, after leading them for many seasons with great success. In Washington, he served as Associate Conductor for Mstislav Rostropovich in the National Symphony. With a solid career both in the USA and Brazil, Mechetti has already performed in Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, New Zealand, Spain, Japan, Scotland, Finland, Canada, Sweden, and Italy. He is also a winner of the Malko Competition and holds Master’s degrees in conducting and composition from the Juilliard School of Music.

First Prize winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 2015, Dmitry Masleev has been claiming international spotlight with wholehearted support from the audience and the media. Recently, the young talent performed with the Munich Symphony Orchestra and appeared in important festivals at Germany and France. In January 2017, Masleev made his highly anticipated Carnegie Hall recital debut where he presented a program with pieces by Scarlatti, Beethoven, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff and Liszt, which the New York City Informer described as a “vivid and propulsive” performance. Born and raised in Ulan-Ude (a Siberian town between Lake Baikal and the Mongolian border), Masleev was educated at the Moscow Conservatory and at the International Music Academy at Lake Como. Last season, he gave duo recitals with fellow Russian virtuoso Boris Berezovsky.
