Oleg Maisenberg is a Ukrainian pianist.

Born in Odessa, Oleg Maisenberg received his first piano lessons from his mother at the age of five. He completed his studies at the Central Music School Kishinev and at the Gnessin Institute in Moscow with Professor Jocheles. In 1967 he won the second prize at the "International Schubert Competition" in Vienna, where in the same year he won the first prize in the competition "Music of the 20th Century". From 1971 to 1980 he appeared regularly with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra and other renowned orchestras of the former Soviet Union.

In 1981 Oleg Maisenberg emigrated to Vienna, the city that has since become his second home.

Oleg Maisenberg has appeared with the Israel Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic, with the conducters Christoph von Dohnбnyi, Zubin Mehta, Eugene Ormandy, Herbert Blomstedt, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, Neeme Jдrvi, Rafael Frьhbeck de Burgos, Georges Prкtre, Alain Lombard, Michel Plasson, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Vladimir Fedosejev, and Esa-Pekka Salonen.

Oleg Maisenberg frequently appears with chamber orchestras such as the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra New York, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, the Wiener Virtuosen (members of the Vienna Philharmonic), and the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra.

He has devoted much of his time to chamber music, collaborating with such artists as Hermann Prey, Robert Holl, Heinz Holliger, Sabine Meyer, Andrбs Schiff, Renaud und Gautier Capucon. His continuing collaboration with the violinist Gidon Kremer commenced during his early years in Russia.

Oleg Maisenberg has appeared at most of the major festival venues in Salzburg, Vienna, Lockenhaus, Lucerne, Berlin, Florence, Edinburgh, Piano Festival Ruhr and Sviatoslav Richter Festival in Moscow, among others, and has performed as a recitalist throughout the world.

One unique event in Maisenberg‘s career was his 12 concert recital series at the Wiener Konzerthaus in the 1994/95 season in which each concert was dedicated to a different composer. A commemorative edition of five CDs, which include selections of these live performances, was issued by the Wiener Konzerthaus and more recently on the Glissando label.

In April 1995 Oleg Maisenberg was bestowed the title of "Honourary Member" of the Wiener Konzerthaus Society.

He gives master classes on a regular basis and acts as a judicator at various international competitions (Clara Haskil - Vevey, Gйza Anda - Zurich, ARD - Munich).

Oleg Maisenberg‘s repertoire encompasses all stylistic epochs - his particular preference being the music of the 19th century.
