Masha Pisarenko was born in the small Siberian town of Angarsk and gave her first solo piano recital at the age of seven. As she performed more, critics began describing her as a child prodigy. As she grew her talent and performance matured and many critics emphasize her ability to get into the hearts and souls of listeners and becoming one with her instrument. Pisarenko performed solos, concertos and competitions throughout Russia, France, Italy, England and Ukraine before leaving Russia for the United States. Masha attributes much of her success to her meetings with some of the great musicians of our time as well as to her competitive successes.
A mature, highly experienced performing artist, Pisarenko is making plans to record with world famous labels, such as Naxos. Presently, she is working at her Doctorate of Music Arts degree at the University of Nevada Las Vegas where she teaches as well. She is actively involved in cultural life of Las Vegas but continues to lead an intensive concert schedule that takes her all over the world. She performs with first-rate orchestras, playing on the most prestigious stages of the world, including the best stages in Moscow and other Russian cities, as well as America, Asia and Europe.
