Tatiana Tessman (born in Omsk, Russia May 15, 1979) is a Russian-American concert pianist. She has claimed first prizes at the Glenn Gould International Piano Competition in Ostra (Italy), Santorini International Piano Competition (Greece), 55th Wideman International Piano Competition, the Missouri International Piano Competition and the 50th Cincinnati World Piano Competition, in addition to multiple other awards at the Panama International Piano Competition, the Florida International Piano competition and the Eisenberg-Fried Manhattan School of Music Concerto Competition in New York.
In 1997, after being awarded a scholarship from the Mstislav Rostropovich Foundation, Tessman was admitted to the Moscow State Conservatory, where she studied with teachers such as Valery Kastelsky, Pavel Nersessian, Nikolai Lugansky, Sergei Dorensky (with whom she pursued her studies as a post-graduate student) and Mstislav Rostropovich.
After finishing her Bachelor and Master degrees at the Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatoire, Tessman moved to the United States, where she earned
her Doctoral degree at the Manhattan School of Music under the guidance of Solomon Mikowsky, where she was a recipient of the Elda van Gelder Memorial Foundation Scholarship.
In 2003, Tessman’s career marked a milestone when she was invited by Mstislav Rostropovich to perform under the maestro’s baton with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra at the “Klassik am Odeonsplatz” in Munich. The concert took place at the central square in front of an astonishing 7,000 people. Her debut with Maestro Rostropovich was followed by an appearance at the “Summer Concerts” Festival in Ingolstadt. It was at these concerts where Tessman’s much-acclaimed performance of Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto led to other concerts at the series “La Scala Presents.”
Tessman has performed as soloist with orchestras around the world, including the World Symphony in Cincinnati, Shreveport Symphony, Bach’s Festival Orchestra, Manhattan School of Music Philharmonia, Uruguay Philharmonic Symphony, Panama Philharmonic Symphony, Korea W. Philharmonic, the Russian Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.
