The Yavapai Symphony Association (YSA) commences its 2022-23 season at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, with Alexander Malofeev, a 21-year-old musical genius whose touch on the piano has thrilled audiences worldwide.

At 13, he gained international recognition by winning the Gold Medal at the 2014 International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians. In 2016, Malofeev was awarded the Grand Prix at the International Competition for Young Pianists in Moscow.
Malofeev has performed with the world’s best-known orchestras, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Orchestra of the National Academy of Santa Cecilia, the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, Orchestra Filarmonica Della Scala, the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra, the Russian National Orchestra, Orchestre National de Lille, and the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra. YSA’s October concert will feature Alexander performing a program of Beethoven and Rachmaninov.
