M. Dimitry Auerbach began studying piano with Era Lifschitz, first piano teacher of the famous concert pianist, Konstantin Lifschitz. Under her tutelage, Dimitry won 1st Prize at the Thera Rabinowitch Piano Competition and 3rd Prize at the International Russian Music Piano Competition. At the University of California, Dimitry had the good fortune to study piano with Maria Ezerova, an accomplished pupil of the great pianist Mikhail Pletnev, and harpsichord with Linda Burman-Hall, a musicologist and student of the legendary harpsichordist Gustav Leonhardt. Dimitry's piano and harpsichord performances of music by Prokofiev, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Scarlatti, and J.S. Bach led his music professors to describe his playing as "musically very mature, full of interesting interpretations, technically brilliant, among the most advanced in the department." Since the beginning of his performing career, Dimitry has performed a substantial number of pieces for solo piano and has enjoyed playing a great variety of chamber music (duets, trios, and quintets with fellow violinists, cellists, and even the occasional piano concerto). Dimitry won the privilege of performing with the New York Piano Society at Carnegie Hall in March 2011, and he continues his music studies at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels starting in 2017.
