Pianist Dimitri Papadimitriou has distinguished himself as an artist of refined musicianship and remarkable verve. A passionate advocate of chamber music, Dimitri recently collaborated with renowned violinists Augustin Hadelich and James Ehnes, whereas previous seasons have found him on stage with principal musicians from major European and U.S. orchestras, including Noah Bendix-Balgley (Berlin Philharmonic), Alex Kerr (Dallas Symphony) and Andrés Cárdenes (Pittsburgh Symphony). This season he will perform alongside Alexi Kenney, as well as  the Rosamunde String Quartet.

A musician of versatile skills, Dimitri has lately developed an interest in conducting that led to fully staged performances of Mozart's Magic Flute, Ravel's L' enfant et les sortileges and Viardot's Cendrillon. Currently an Assistant Teaching Professor at Carnegie Mellon University School of Music in Pittsburgh, he also serves as the Artistic Director of the Carnegie Mellon Chamber Series, a newly found series that brings together distinguished artists, members of the CMU faculty and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra musicians, while pursuing an MBA at Tepper School of Business.

Before moving to the U.S., Dimitri was residing in Ireland enjoying a flourishing career with engagements in some of the country's most prestigious venues and festivals, while completing his Doctorate in Music Performance. A native of Greece, Dimitri at age sixteen won first prize at the international chamber music competition Classical Heritage of Moscow, and has performed Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini with the Greek Radio Symphony Orchestra and Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto with the Athens State Orchestra.

A graduate of Indiana University and the Royal Irish Academy of Music, he has participated in a plethora of festivals throughout Europe and the U.S.
