Marina Vasilieva Starostenkova Osman (Russian: Марина Васильева Старoстенкова Oсман), born in Polotsk, Belarus in 1965, is a Belarusian classical and jazz concert pianist.


Early life and studies[edit]

Marina Vasilieva was born in 1965 in Polotsk, Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic,[1] in a family of musicians. Her mother Lydia Ivanovna Vasilieva was a bayan player, a choirmaster and a singing/vocal teacher and her father Viktor Semenovich Vasiliev was a theoretician, graduate of the Gnessin State Musical College.

After moving to Murmansk in the Kola Peninsula, Starostenkova started her music studies in 1980 at Murmansk College of Arts (former Murmank Music School), entering a piano class. In 1984, she graduated with distinction after completing the full academic course in the speciality fortepiano and was given the qualification of teacher of a music school and concertmaster.[2]

During her studies in Murmansk, she became laureate of the Regional Contest of the soloist-pianist in the North-West region of the USSR and the winner of the Contest of Soloist-Pianists held in Murmansk.

In the same year, she entered the Belarusian State Academy of Music in Minsk in the speciality fortepiano in the class of professor Leonid Petrovich Yushkevich in which she stayed until 1990.[1][3]


Whilst she studied in Minsk, from 1989, she became a piano teacher and concertmaster in Novopolotsk State Musical College[4] in Novopolotsk.

She was granted the higher pedagogical and concertmaster categories in 1993. She worked from 1989 to 2010 at Novopolotsk State Musical College and prepared 40 students including her daughter, Julia Starostenkova,[4] to enter the Belarusian State Academy of Music, and at other musical superior institutions and colleges in Russia and Belarus. Some of her students entered the German universities of Hochschule für Musik Karlsruhe and Internationales Musikinstitut Darmstadt. Most of her students were laureates of the music contest for young interpreters of music for the piano, interregional piano contest (Vitebsk), regional contest in Vitebsk (1997), Grodno (2005, 2006), Minsk (2007), Mogilev (2009) and made "a huge historical and creative contribution to development of the college".[5]

She was a member of the jury of the third International Chamber ensemble competition "Nova Musica" in Daugavpils.[1]

Starostenkova took part in concerts both in Belarus and Russia, and also in jazz festivals in Germany, Poland, Lithuania and Russia in 2009.[1]

In September of the same year, she was invited to Moscow to participate in radio recordings of Swedish violonist Michael Kazinik [Wikidata]'s radio programs at radio Orpheus[1][6] a Russian classical music station, before continuing to give concerts in December 2009 in Moscow with him and Andreï Chistyakov.[7][8][9][10]

Mikhaïl Kazinik qualifies Starostenkova as:

[Марина Старостенкова – удивительная пианистка из далекого белорусского города Новополоцка. По словам Михаила Казиника, Марина – "это Дом музыки. То есть вся музыка, которая была написана когда-либо, все гармонии, все возможности существуют в ее голове, сердце и руках".] error: {{lang-xx}}: text has italic markup (help)

— Michael Kazinik [ru], Вечер импровизации. Встреча первая, [1]

Now in England, Marina Osman frequently gives concerts at the Pushkin House in London[11] and has given piano and theory lessons[1][12] since 2011.
